Katlin Ann Parton (Katie) was born in Casper, Wyoming on November 6, 1990 to Ron and Pat Parton. She went to heaven at the age of 29 in the early hours of June 27, 2020, at Wyoming Medical Center. Katie graduated from Kelly Walsh High School in 2009, followed by classes at Casper College. As a beautiful young woman with Down Syndrome, she opened the hearts of everyone she met. Katie confidently lived in the moment with a contagious smile and laugh. She loved life. Some of her favorite things included traveling, restaurants, baseball and football, and helping mom with genealogy. One of Katie’s biggest enjoyments was singing and dancing. This girl loved to dance! One of her proudest accomplishments was being the dance team manager when she was at Kelly Walsh High School. She was also very effective at exciting the fans as a varsity cheer leader her sophomore year. Some of Katie’s favorite travels included family vacations to numerous baseball stadiums around the country, eating Gelato in Italy, biking in Alaska, and zip lining in Mexico. When in elementary school, Katie went to Washington DC as a disability awareness representative through the Silver Ribbon Campaign, where she visited the West Wing and met the Vice President to promote school and community inclusion. Katie was a confidant self-advocate. She and dad were rivals in their fantasy football and baseball teams, of which she loved to playfully tease her opponents. Nothing was more important to Katie than friendships. She never declined an offer to go for coffee or a girl’s night out. She loved dancing with the cowboys at the Beacon and being silly with her friends. Katie intermittently participated in Special Olympics swimming, equestrian, and soccer. Katie loved her job at Taco John’s, where she was treasured for 13 years. She never knew life without an adoring puppy, young and old, (Chamois, Nibbles, Sienna, Lizzie), and doted on them through walks and play.

Katie leaves behind a community of friends and family whom she loved and who loved her beyond measure. Katie always knew she was loved. Besides her parents, Katie’s extended family includes the Junge Family- Bill, Cheryl, Becky, Katie, Joey, and Bryan (Taylor). She also leaves her aunts, uncles, and cousins, who live in numerous places around the country. Her Labrador, Lizzie, who was always by her side, also misses her greatly.

A celebration of Katie’s beautiful life, “Katie’s Happy Hour,” will be held at Mike Lansing Field, Saturday, July 18, at 7:00pm. We invite all who knew Katie in her many walks of life.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Hilltop Bank, Casper, WY, to the Katie Parton Memorial Dance Scholarship.
