Tawnya M. Plante of Schofield died of a heart attack after contracting swine flu
A 32-year-old Schofield woman has been identified by her mother as the second county resident to die of complications of H1N1 flu.
Tawnya M. Plante, a single mother of four and a caretaker for people with cognitive disabilities, died Nov. 8 at her home from a heart attack, said her mother, Bonnie Gebauer, 64, of Schofield.
Plante contracted swine flu a few weeks ago, Gebauer said, and then came down with pneumonia and bronchitis. Plante also suffered from asthma, Gebauer said.
The Marathon County Health Department announced on Wednesday the second county resident had died of H1N1-related illness, but would release no details about the death. The first local death attributed to swine flu occurred in June, when 12-year-old Emily Eaton of Rib Mountain died at Saint Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Marshfield. Eaton had suffered from immune-system deficiencies since birth.
Gebauer told the Wausau Daily Herald Thursday that her daughter was the person to whom the Health Department referred on Wednesday.
“She loved her four children,” Gebauer said. “That was her life.”
