Mrs. Jill Barton passed away peacefully surrounded by her family close friends, on September 19, 2013 at the High River Hospital at the age of 49 years. Jill is survived by her husband Jamie; son Tate; mother Sharon Hautzinger; father Joseph Hautzinger; brothers Tim (Cheryl) Hautzinger, Corey (Elizabeth) Hautzinger; mother and father-in- law, Syd and Karen Barton; sisters-in-law Terri (Perry) Anderson and Nancy Barton as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Jill was born in Calgary, Alberta and graduated from Lord Beaverbrook High School in 1982. Following high school, Jill went on to achieve her Master Hair Stylist designation which ended up taking her all over the world from London to LA doing what she loved. Later on in life, Jill married Jamie Barton at their very own New Year's Eve Party that they hosted on December 31, 2004... A few years later, Tate entered the scene on February 23, 2008 much to their delight. One of Jill's favorite things to do was spending time with her family and friends and especially Tate... this more than anything was the reason Jill fought her fight against cancer so strong. Jill was loved and known by many... if it was not her infectious smile that caught you, you would likely hear one of her boisterous laughs... that laugh made everyone smile. Jill loved the community that she called home... she loved High River's sense of community...This never became more apparent to us all then when Jill was diagnosed with Breast Cancer; it was then when Jill experienced the true meaning of community, love and support. She was forever thankful for the community support. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the High River Hospital Cancer Centre, 560 - 9 Avenue S.W., High River, AB, T1V 1B3. A Celebration of Jill's Life will be held on Thursday, September 26 at 1:00 p.m. at the Okotoks Evangelical Free Church (28 Westland Road) in Okotoks.
