Megan was a fearless and resilient spirit. She had unconditional love for her family and friends and was a lifelong lover of animals. She was blessed with countless friends, mentors, and supportive ties through her life. She was so loved by so many.
Megan struggled with addiction for the past eight years. Throughout her battle with substance, she drew from her well of endless inner strength, and the ongoing love and support of family and friends, who never ruled out recovery. In honor of Megan’s legacy, her family asks that onlookers, acquaintances and friends make concerted efforts to educate themselves on the complexities of drug addiction. Drug addiction is a disease that likely impacts someone you know. If you or someone you know is suffering because of addiction, please seek support and treatment.
The family would also like to thank Edward Chionchio for his continued guidance and support of the family.
In lieu of flowers, please provide donations to Eva’s Village, Patterson, NJ - https://www.evasvillage.org or donations to be sent to David or Kathryn Colon for an educational fund for Megan’s son, Jeremiah Jerome.
While we would have given anything for her to remain with us, we take comfort in knowing that Megan is now free from her battle. Our lives are forever changed by the loss of Megan, but we will carry her spirit and legacy forward in our hearts and as a family. Our grief, sense of loss and love for Megan are infinite as her spirit.
