PARTLOW, Carol A., 63, of Tampa, died all too soon on May 18, 2002, after a long illness. She will be missed and her memory cherished by her husband, David; her children, Shaun, Jenefer and Eric, and their spouses Karen, Thomas, and Dawn; her grandchildren, Alek, Brendan, Erica, Jonathan and Erin Carol yet-to-come; her `granddogs` Java and Shadow; her mother, Margaret; her sister-in-law, Ann; her dear friends, Annie, Sandra, Jason, Suzi, Judy, and too many more to mention individually. Carol's irrepressible and free spirit lives on in all those who loved her, for whom a bright star has just faded from view. Carol's love of life and people, generous nature, unbridled optimism and determination to struggle for what she believed was right, touched many, many people over the years and left as a legacy a shining example for others to follow. As one who lived fully, she left undone many things she wished to accomplish, yet did more with her time than many do with decades more given to them. A private celebration of her unique life was held by the family at the Treehouse. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
