June 29, 1991 - March 14, 2014
Megan Teresa Marie Mattingley, of Palisade, died in the loving embrace of her parents and siblings on March 14th, 2014. She was 22 years old.
Megan was born on June 29th, 1991, to Mitch and Cynthia Mattingley in Grand Junction, Colorado. She was a 2010 Palisade High School graduate who was currently attending Colorado Mesa University with plans of entering the nursing program.
As a treasured firstborn child, Megan overcame the adversity of an early illness with patience seldom seen in other children. At the age of five she underwent a kidney transplant, receiving a kidney from her mother.
Megan enjoyed music, dancing, reading, and her cats, Jimmy and Monster. She savored her time with family and friends and exhibited a fierce love for her brother and sister. She had an endearing sense of humor with an infectious laugh and contagious smile that will be missed by her loved ones each and every day for the rest of their lives.
Besides her parents, Megan is survived by her brother and sister, Jacob and Nicole Mattingley; her grandparents, Bill and Teresa Hutchinson, and Jim and Sharilyn Mattingley, all of Palisade; her aunts, Janel (Alan) Anderson of Grand Junction; Chandra Brown (Jonathan) of Palisade, and LeAnna (Alan) DeVore of Palisade; cousins, Brendon Anderson, Tyler Brown, Josie Brown, Cody DeVore, Cory DeVore, and Tristen DeVore.
Megan's life will be celebrated at CanyonView Vineyard Church in Grand Junction, Colorado, on Tuesday, March 18th, at 2:30 p.m. Services are entrusted to Palisade Funeral Home.
