Megan had recently lived in Honolulu Hawaii, working as an office manager for Hawaii Technology Academy. In the last few years, Megan was also pursuing a civil engineering degree, and worked as a Research Assistant while a student at West Texas A&M University.
Megan was an energetic, selfless, and beautiful young woman. She could make a joke of almost anything, and usually did. She was also determined, stubborn, and a fighter as she demonstrated in her brave battle with cancer in the closing months of her life. Megan loved music and dancing. She was on a dance team throughout her middle school and high school years, dancing in competitions in numerous places and cities such as Sea World-San Antonio and Dallas Texas. She and her teammates won many trophies. She loved Tejano music, especially Selena. Megan would always prepare a playlist when going on long road trips, and she and her mother Kelly would sing along together for hundreds of miles down the highway. She also loved the beach, playing games, bargain hunting at garage sales, and going to car shows with her beloved Papa, Winthon. In recent years, Megan started making jewelry, and was able to use many of the jewelry-making tools that her Papa used when he made jewelry.
Megan was very close to her brother, Tanner. She depended on him for emotional support, as well as his muscles and pickup when he helped her move to new places. Megan loved shopping with her dad Craig, and he would wait patiently for many hours as she looked through everything in every shop. She also liked going to the auto shop where Craig works to give everyone in sight a hard time.
Megan passed too soon, too young, and will be sorely missed by her family and friends. But recollections of her vibrant personality will continue on and bring sweet memories to those that knew her best.
The family will receive friends from 5-6:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 16, 2018, at the funeral home.
