Tara Bennett was killed after being hospitalized. While in the Wapsipinicon Park in Anamosa, Tara was sitting at a park bench with a friend when a loose tree branch fell hitting her in the head. She sustained major injuries and was air lifted to the University of Iowa where she later had surgery on her skull. After her first surgery they took a CT scan and discovered bone fragments in the fluid surrounding her brain. They went to remove them and when they entered the brain membrane her brain expanded massivly and she could no longer function as a person. No movement could be sustained. Her family later decided to take her off life support. Tara is survived by her Parents, two twin boys Dylan and Collin, her x husband, and best friends including Kendra Fox. Tara was a very optimistic person with a great sense of humor. If she would have pulled out of this it would have been a miracle but it wasn't going to happen no matter how much all of us wanted it to be true. Even if she would've pulled out of it she wouldn't be able to function EVER!! All of her mobilities were gone! So I am sorry for your loss but we all know that she is in a better place now. Right?

I was a very good friend of Tara and it was very hard to write this or to even think about it but at least I know she has lived a very happy and joyous life filled with love, laughter, children, and lots of other greatful things!!

No, Tara was not survived by her Parents, but her mother and sister. Her dad died when she was young. She was not married, so no "x husband" either.
