"LAG" 2008 Obituary


LAGEER o@ca.on.simcoe_county.nottawasaga.collingwood.the_connection 2008-02-01 published
Tara PARTON, 15, remembered as fighter
Became a spokesperson for Cystic Fibrosis cause
By John EDWARDS, Page 16
Tara PARTON lived more than 5,734 days, and lived every one to. the fullest
said an uncle this week as the family prepared for her funeral Tuesday.
PARTON, who underwent a double-lung transplant in April 2005, passed away last Friday morning at her Collingwood home with her parents Doug and Shannon by her side. She was 15.
Tara was described by her uncle, Jeff PARTON, as a courageous individual, a fighter, who never let her health get her down.
Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was three-months-old, he said she always lived life to the fullest. He said the way she accepted her mortality really impressed him.
"Her reality of the situation - she knew death was imminent and she never wanted to go ahead and wallow in self pity" he said.
Jeff said his niece was artistic and an animal lover.
Sarah LAGEER has called Tara a friend since Grade 3 but started spending a lot more time with her over the last three years.
"I would go see her every day after school," she said.
LAGEER said Tara was a loyal friend and a good listener.
"If I wasn't having a really good day, she would listen to me and offer advice and it was usually pretty good advice LAGEER recalls.
She said some of her favourite times were swimming at the Young Men's Christian Association or just talking.
"We would have sleepovers and stay up until 2 a.m. just talking and watching movies," she said.
"She didn't really want (her condition) to take time away that she could spend with her Friends," LAGEER said "She lived life to the fullest"
Her uncle said the disease took hold over her in the last five months and over the last several weeks she became ill.
"She struggled forward," he said. In an April 2006 Interview Tara described herself as the survivor in a trio of young Cystic Fibrosis patients who became closely bonded during their hospital stays.
Her "long, hard wait" ended after 18 months on the transplant list with her lungs down to just 20 per cent capacity.
"We made a pact, the last one here would live to become an old lady," she recounted then. Her two Friends did not survive.
"I guess that is up to me now and I will do my best," she said.
"I do not know how long I will live, but I am grateful for my second chance at life."
Tara became an advocate for Cystic Fibrosis and organ donations.
She is survived by her mother Shannon, father Doug, brother Cody and sister Ashley, grandmother Shirley PARTON, grandparents Mel and Eleanor MATHER and nephew Logan. She was predeceased by her brother Ryan.
