THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
JaRon D. Scearce
Issue Date: March 7, 2019
JaRon David Scearce, peacefully passed from his parents arms into the arms of the Great Shepherd.
Born Feb. 11, 2019, to Jacob and Lillie Ann Scearce, nearly seven weeks premature, he arrived with many unexpected complications. Shortly after birth at St. Vincent's Hospital, the physician said he would need to be transferred to Children's Hospital in Milwaukee.
Upon further observation, complications were consistent with Urorectal Septum Malformation Sequence, with complications to all his vital organs and would have required extensive surgical intervention and NICU management with an uncertain outcome. These problems gave him a very low chance of survival and chances of a normal life distant. Nothing could have been done to prevent this condition prior to birth.
It was a rare condition and after being in NICU for nine hours, he began to leave the family. He was put in his mother's arms and life support was removed. He breathed on his own and opened his dark blue eyes briefly in farewell.
New grandparents, young aunts and uncles, a set of great-grandparents and other friends surrounded them as he slowly faded.
He is survived by his parents, Jacob and Lillie Ann Scearce and was the first grandchild to Aaron and Rebekah Scearce and Ronald and Lillian Martin; first nephew to 14 aunts and 10 uncles; first great-grandchild to Clinton and Mary Amstutz, David and Joy Beachy and Leon and Marian Martin; second great-grandchild to Sharon Scearce and first great-great-grandchild to Martha Martin.
He was preceded in death by one great-grandparent, Keith Scearce.
Gallagher Funeral Home of Oconto is assisting the family.
