Parton was a star of the 1960s and 70s, and has been revered for her enduring beauty.
A longtime fixture of the New York City music scene, she was a fixture of public spaces around the world, from the subway to her own studio, which was decorated with her signature hand-painted murals.
Parton, who died on Thursday, had been diagnosed with Stage 4 glioblastoma, a disease that kills about 1 in 4 people within three years of diagnosis.
The disease is more aggressive in older people, and the most common symptoms include difficulty breathing, swelling and bruising.
But the artist had been battling the disease since she was 27, and her work with her family, including her longtime band, the Partons, continued to influence generations of generations of artists.
Dolly’s longtime collaborator, the late Bob Dylan, died in February at the age of 83.
She also worked on numerous albums by the likes of Stevie Wonder and Elton John, and she was featured on the covers of numerous pop culture publications, including The New Yorker and Vanity Fair.
The Partons have long been considered an institution in the music world, but it was her death that made her a symbol for many in the community.
“This is the world now,” she told The New York Times in March, as the mural was coming down for the final time.
“I think that if you look at it, you’ll realize that the people who love her are just as committed as the people in the building, the people around her.
And that’s the real beauty of the mural is that it’s not just her, but she’s part of the world.”
In May, Parton also died of brain cancer, and in September, her daughter, Linda, said she was preparing for her mother’s funeral.
She said the final weeks of her life had been a “terrifying” experience.
“The pain and suffering that she had to endure, I think, has left an indelible mark,” Linda Parton said.
“She’s gone and been forgotten.
She’s gone from the public eye, and now she’s gone to heaven.”
Parton will be laid to rest in the family home in New Jersey, according to her daughter Linda Partons.
The parton family has not released a statement.
The mural was installed on May 31, 1967.
It was the last part of Parton Park in Manhattan, and part of a project to beautify the park.
It also marked the beginning of a transformation for the city’s parks, which have undergone a rapid transformation in recent years.
The city now has more than 3,000 parks, playgrounds, playground areas and other amenities, with more than 1,300 designated as “campsites” for young children.
