PARENT, Kara Lynne

July 19, 1981 – June 3, 2012

It is with the greatest sorrow that we announce that our much loved daughter, Kara Lynne Parent, passed away June 3, from heart failure, just shy of her 31st birthday.

Kara was always told that she was a special gift from God, but that gift was taken away much too soon.

During her short lifetime, Kara dealt with many health issues, but always handled whatever she was given with great strength and acceptance. She always had a ready smile and loved to be with family and friends. After losing her hearing to a tumour in one ear, she quickly learned to lip read and when struck with a deadly infection, she fought back and got back to living life, even though she had less mobility.

At 12, Kara was stricken with arthritis which meant that she had to give up many of the activities that she loved to do. The main thing was giving up her beloved horse, Goldie. It also meant giving up skiing and hiking which were two activities she enjoyed. However, she quickly found other pursuits to fill the gap.

Kara loved to travel and always looked forward to family trips to Hawaii at Christmas. Snorkeling was a favorite past time and Kara and her Dad had many special times exploring the oceans around Hawaii.

Spending time with friends playing board games or around the campfire was another favorite past time. Animals, especially dogs, were a delight to her and her special companion dog, Charade, was a great comfort to her when she was feeling that life was a struggle.

Life was difficult for Kara, because of her size, which was related to a condition that she was born with, which is known as Turner’s syndrome. She always wished that people would look at the person on the inside and not just look at their outward appearances. She found acceptance and had many good times with great friends from her church, The First Alliance.

Kara spent her high school years at Foothills Academy working with the most dedicated and wonderful teachers in Calgary. She was so happy during those years and, at her Grade Twelve Graduation, Kara was Valedictorian of her class. We cannot thank the staff enough for making Kara realize her true potential and making her believe that she could accomplish whatever she set out to do.

No matter what she tackled, she tried to do it to the best of her ability. While working full time and being involved with many church activities, as well family, she still found time to work towards finishing her university degree in Human Resources. She hoped that someday she could find a career where she could truly help people. Having a position where she could work with children would have been her ultimate goal.

When Kara’s Dad set up his own company, with partners, she was always there to help out and support us in any way she could. She started off just doing odd jobs and worked at getting a diploma from Mount Royal College in Human Resources. Kara was happy assisting in any way she could and, when she graduated, she became a permanent member of the Progressive Engineering family. One of her greatest joys was organizing the children’s Christmas party.

Kara leaves to mourn her great loss, her Dad and Mom, Ted and Wendy Parent, her brother Edward (Ted Jr.), wife Jodi, and her nephew Cole and niece Makenna Parent (both of whom she adored). She is also survived by her fraternal grandmother Vera Parent.

She also leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins too numerous to mention, but whom she held special in her heart, as family meant everything to her. Kara was predeceased by her maternal grandmother and grandfather and her fraternal grandfather.

Going to Drumheller to spend a weekend with her cousins playing board games or just talking was a special time. In her earlier days Kara loved to go to Kelowna to spend time with her aunts, uncles, and cousins. Going on a girls’ weekend to Vegas with her Aunt Colleen, her cousin Sandy, and her Mom was a special memory. Kara had a passion for country music. Her favourite recording artist being Paul Brandt who is respected so much for all of his charity work. She was also an avid Flames fan and Theoren Fleury was an inspiration to her.

Kara loved children and worked in the Children’s Garden at her church. She was so excited that so many of her friends were having babies and looked forward to baby showers in the future. Kara’s favorite charity was The Children’s Hospital, where she spent a lot of time as a child. Again, we have to thank all of the staff for their kindness when Kara entered trials for Turner’s syndrome. A special thank you must go to Dr. Stephure and Sybil in the Endocrinology Department. A very special doctor in her life was Dr. Warshawski, who operated on her tumour, and has been following her throughout her life. She always felt safe with him and he always called her “his pretty lady.”

Her wish would be that, instead of flowers, a donation be made to the Alberta Children’s Hospital, 2888 Shaganappi Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T3B 6A8, Telephone: (403) 955-8818 in her name. Kara also sponsored a child through the Foster Parent’s plan, monthly.

Her other wish would be that the next time you encounter a person with a disability, that you find it within yourself to look beyond the disability and into the real person inside. Her life would have been so much easier for her and the people who loved her, if only more people had taken the time to see what a sincere, loving, and dedicated person Kara was.

Goodbye our Ray of Sunshine. You will be missed terribly.

Funeral Services will be held at FIRST ALLIANCE CHURCH (12345 – 40th Street S.E.) on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Kara Parent, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    Dear Ted and Wendy, I met Kara about two years ago when I joined the Trow (exp)in Human Resources team in Brampton. Kara was quick to welcome me and we had many chats over the telephone particularly in my first year with the Company. Unfortunately, I only had one opportunity to meet her face-to-face when she came our way for an HR gathering. While at dinner one night we sat across from each other and got to know each other a bit better. She spoke of her love of horses and riding that she sadly had to give up (but didn’t elaborate why and I didn’t ask). Also, how she enjoyed going shopping for all the kids Christmas presents on-line to get all the good deals! She spoke of her brother’s children with much love and I recall how excited she was about the last family trip to Hawaii at Christmas. A lovely young women with a huge heart and someone who grabbed every moment was the impression she left with me. I am so very sorry for your family’s loss.

    No words can express the sadness we feel. Kara has always been a bundle of giggles and smiles, an absolute joy to be around. She was blessed with the best parents in the whole world and was loved so much. She had many cousins who were blessed to have shared in those giggles. I loved my little niece and will always remember her for her positive energy and great outlook on life that has not always been so kind to her. She was a “give it all you got” kid and she did just that at everything she tackled. Just so sad she was taken so soon.

    To me Kara was a beautiful person, both inside and out. To me the only thing different about her was the fact she was always smiling.

We have lost one beautiful person, an angel for sure.

  21. Cynthia Penney :

    Ted, Wendy & Family,

    In sharing your sad news this week, the response had been asking if Kara had been ill. I had immediately responsed with ‘no’. Kara had such a big prescence to her PE family, strong and enduring, she never showed any inabilities. Last year, while in Calgary with my dogs, she tried to convince me to go to a CARO trial. I was excited, she got me to print the rules, we were set to go…until I read the rules. I have run many CKC rally trials with my dogs and recognized the CARO trials were too difficult for me to run. But not too difficult for Kara, she titled her dogs.

    If I ever find the courage to compete in CARO, I know there’ll be a voice behind me telling me I can do it.

    Thinking of you, my condolences.

    Life is so precious, yet it can be so fleeting and so suddenly lost. Kara and you must have experienced both tremendous challenges and joys during your almost 31 years together and it is the breadth of those experiences and memories that will now be with you.

    Unfortunately, Cathy and I will both be out of the City on June 8th, so we cannot be with you at Kara’s funeral service. We will be with you in spirit and thought, though.

    Words can’t describe the sadness felt when I heard Kara left so suddenly to her eternal home. She was a very special lady indeed with a big heart seen by all who knew her.
    I met Kara through First Alliance when I first moved to the city five years ago. Through hours playing board games, going to concerts/retreats, camping and just getting together for a meal or movie, I have many great memories created with her. We would celebrate our birthdays over DQ ice cream cakes.
    Whenever we would get together she would always talk of her family – she loved you so much. She was one proud Aunt of her niece & nephew – her eyes would light up as she talked about family trips and time spent out at the cabin.
    I had no idea she had been through so much health wise but I know that she remained so positive because of all the love and support she received.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this time of mourning may you have a sense of peace and comfort and remember all the good times.

I saw you briefly at the church but I had to leave early due to a prior family commitment in Lethbridge. My thoughts go out to you both and your family.
    Kindest regards
    John.

    My deepest condolences for Ted, Wendy, Ted and Jodi, and the kids. Kara was an amazing and wonderful person with so much life in her. Take solace that she celebrated more of life in her short time here than most most who life long lives. The world has lost one of the most caring and special people to grace it. I hope you retain all of the good memories and joy that she brought to our lives. I love you all.
