Megan was a loving mother that loved her children more than her own life. Megan never wanted to be defined by her addiction, she was so much more than that. Megan's battle of addiction ultimately took her life. Megans smile and laugh would light up a room. She wanted nothing more than a fresh start to a more positive life for her and her kids, and was so close to having it, until she was called home to end the battle she fought so hard to overcome.
The family asks only for support and prayers to everyone who is now left to mourn the loss of someone who has changed their heart and lives forever.
A Funeral Service will be held at Trinity Baptist Church, 746 Trinity Church Road, Mooresboro, NC 28114 on Friday, December 13, 2019 at 7:00 PM with Harlon Joe Skimmiehorn officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to service.
