Death: Jun. 5, 2010

Paige Leigh Kuersten age 16. Dyer, IN resident, born and raised in Chicago Heights. Marian Catholic High School Sophomore. Beloved daughter of Mary Jo nee Piacenti and Scott M. Kuersten. Loving sister of Alexandra and her twin Brooke. Cherished granddaughter of Diane nee Calderone (William) Piacenti- Matthews and the late Patrick J. Piacenti, and Agnes nee McPherson and Ervin Kuersten Jr. Cherished niece of Patricia (Steve) Allen, Jeanne (Tony) Zomparelli, John P. Piacenti, Marni Piacenti, Jena (Keith Meisel) Piacenti and Steve (Karen) Kuersten. Devoted friend and cousin of Taylor, Reed, Anthony, Lily, Gianluca, Miranda, Stephanie, Lisa, and Linda.

Her family decided to donate the teen's organs because Paige's grandfather died more than two decades ago while waiting for a heart transplant, said Kuersten's aunt, Jeanne Zomparelli.

Even in death Paige Kuersten is giving. Seven people are set to receive her organs, her family said Sunday

"She blessed us with a week," Paige's aunt said. "She stayed and held on to be with us."

Paige, who ran track at Marian, loved country music, baby-sat and spent her summers in Ludington, Mich., was known as "the bug" because she was so little, Jeanne Zomparelli said.

She's remembered by dozens of family and friends as a happy-go-lucky people person, her aunt said.

"She was always happy, never sad," Zomparelli said.
