Morgan Janine Meggait, born April 1 1996, passed away May 6 2021 aged 25 at her home in Armstrong B.C. after a more than courageous battle against a rare form of brain cancer.
Morgan (Morgii Bear) was passionate about dance and spent her childhood and adolescence studying dance and art. Performing brought her the greatest joy. Summer was her favorite season growing up as it meant traveling to Vancouver Island to go to summer camp at camp Qwanoes which she said was a close second to Christmas. She would count down the days until it was time to be with her friends again. Morgan studied at UVIC where she discovered her love of astronomy, and met many wonderful friends. She worked towards becoming an educator until her health no longer permitted.
Morgan was a generous and giving person who suffered many physical hardships but never ceased having love, hope, or compassion for others. She believed in leading with love and always made time for others. She also believed in celebrating all that was good in the world, starting with ice cream (especially chocolate). During treatment she still found time to cook for neighbors and help others in her community. You could not escape her shining personality.
Morgan is survived by her father Gordon L. Meggait, mother Karen Meggait, sister Sarina L. Meggait, grandparents Martin and Geraldine Meggait, uncles Tony Meggait (Robin), Jim Meggait (Nelly), Evan Spellman (Jo ann), Darrel Spellman and many cousins.
Predeceased by brother Michael Meggait September 1992.
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.”- Alfred Tennyson

A private get together will be held at a later date.
I was thinking of Morgan lately and how I hadn't seen her in a while, and am devastated to learn of her passing. I knew her briefly, and not well, but she was such a joy to treat during our sessions. Her positivity was infectious and I couldn't help but admire how bubbly, optimistic, and fun she was despite her health. My deepest condolences to you. With care, Alex
Our deepest condolences for you and your family’s loss Gordy Ted and Karen Polson
I just found about about dear Morgan today and was so sad to hear the news, having had no idea she’d been sick. She was in my son’s year through elementary and high school and was such a sweet girl who grew into a lovely young woman. I’ll be thinking of your family and sending love.
Our family is very shocked and saddened by the news of Morgan's passing. Both of our kids had the privilege growing up with Morgan. Kaitlin, our daughter graduated with Morgan and had gone on the NY trip together, where they had the most memorable time. Tanner was good friends with Morgan, she showed him caring and understanding when others didn't. Morgan was a sweet soul who could light up a room with her genuine, big smile and kind heart. Thank you to Morgan's family for sharing such a beautiful person with us all.
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I didn't know Morgan personally, but I know people who knew her. From what I hear, she was a joy to be around. Heaven has gained an angel
I am sitting here staring at a blank screen trying to think of the right words to somehow comfort all of you. I knew Morgan from the Sterling lab where I tortured her many times. I always felt so bad when I poked her knowing it hurt, but she took it like a champ. Morgan was SO much stronger and braver than I will or could ever be. She always had a smile on her face and I wondered to myself, how could she be so happy with her diagnosis? She truly saw the beauty in every moment and I will try to live my life like that going forward. I will be having chocolate ice cream with my family tonight in honor of a BEAUTIFUL soul up in heaven. I am truly sorry for your loss.
I remember meeting Morgan for the first time, when we were taking radiation in Kelowna. Our hearts sunk into our stomachs when we read of her passing. The world has lost a beautiful soul. Hugs to you Karen and Gord.
I am so saddened and shocked to hear about Morgan’s passing. I always enjoyed our physio sessions. Morgan was very optimistic and had such a zest for life. I know that some of her physical injuries were challenging but she kept a positive attitude. She would make me laugh at some of her stories. She had some unique ways of describing needling- “ like little goblins reaching up and twisting the needle”. She was the only person with that description. :-). Her caring nature was so evident in how she spoke about her family and friends. I am thankful that I did know her and I won’t forget her.
We were simply heartbroken when we heard of Morgan's passing. The world has lost a lovely, lovely person and some of the sparkle has left the planet. We hope she is sailing through the stars with that big beautiful smile on her face. Please know that our thoughts are with your family and that we are sending virtual very long hugs.
We are so saddened to hear of Morgan’s passing. I had the honour of meeting her at the dog park. She had such a spark for life, and was truly an inspiration to all. All the dog walkers have been thinking of Morgan, and her family. We all truly send our deepest condolences to the family. Ryan, Deb, Henry and all the dogs at the park.❤️
Morgan touched the lives of many - including our sons, Luke and Carl plus so many of their friends. In her brief time in Victoria for University she clearly spread sunshine and goodness. May these young people carry her spirit of sunshine, sweetness, and generosity with them for all of their days.
I was so saddened to read of Morgan’s passing. She fought a long and hard fight. I had the privileged and honor of being her radiation nurse thru her time in Kelowna. Hugs to her family and friends. Robin Moser, Kelowna
So very sorry for your loss. May all the wonderful memories of Morgan, comfort you. Love, Sandy & Sid
