April 15, 1986 – March 22, 2013
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of our beautiful daughter Laura Dawn Penton while on vacation in Mexico. Laura was born April 15, 1986 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She spent the early years of her life there and in 1992, Laura, her mom and two other sisters moved to Calgary. She was a bright student who excelled at school. She was the editor of her high school newspaper and was never one to shy away from controversy. This led her to enrol in first Journalism and then Photo Journalism at SAIT.
Laura was the light of our lives and touched the heart of everyone who knew her. Laura loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was a no nonsense kind of girl who made people better just by being near her. Her passing has left a hole in the hearts of many.
Laura is survived by her mother, Tish Anderson (Kim Anderson) of Calgary; father Darcy Zaretsky (Jodi Coates) of Moose Jaw; sisters Kylie Zaretsky, Marie Zaretsky, Mayla Anderson, and Amy Doolan (Jeff Doolan); uncle Dellas Zaretsky (Vickie Quaintance); aunt Rose New; cousins, Ron New (Jen), Samantha & Piper New, Lisa and Alex Zaretsky, Mindy and Shannon New, Jackson and Carter Doolan.
