Not sure what to say?

Megan was my student in sociology at UW Oshkosh, and I remember her well. When I organized our very first event where we had graduates of our program come back to campus to offer advice to current students, in 2005, Megan was a clear choice to be on the program (see photo). She was one of a handful of students who really stood out I, and I am deeply saddened by her premature passing.

I loved her keen mind and eagerness to engage and serve. She was very easy to be a friend with and I enjoyed her company. She is the type of person you do not forget. This was very sad to hear about her passing, as well as other family members. My sincerest condolences to you all. She was special and she left a positive impact on many.

Megan was an indomitable spirit, fueled by a strong faith in God and the belief in the humanity of all people. She was a ray of hope and a blessing to classmates who struggled to learn statistics. I am grieved by her sudden transition and that of her father and son, Evan. I pray God's strength for son Phillip, the Haak and Gutter families.

Marilyn Patterson-James and Arthur James offer our support and prayers to the Gutter and Haak family. May God be our strength and peace.

My deepest condolences to Megan’s family and friends. I live a couple of doors down from Megan and she’d always have a cheery hello for me and a pat on the head for my dog. She was always so friendly and always smiling. She will be missed.

Beautiful Spirit Arrangement

I met Megan through my work at CETL at UWM. She was one of the lovliest, most vibrant, intelligent, and loving people I've ever worked with, known, or called friend. My deepest sympathies to her family, whom I'd only ever heard her talk about with extreme pride, warmth, and love.

I am writing as the Chair of the Department of Sociology at UW-Milwaukee, to share our deepest condolences to Megan's family and friends. We are proud to count her among our alumni, and devastated to hear this news. For me personally, Megan was a phenomenal mentor in her position at CETL as I moved one of my courses online several years ago. She was patient, knowledgeable, and good-humored. Please know you are all in our thoughts, and we are grateful for the time we had with her.

My deepest condolences go out to Megan's family, friends, and coworkers. She will be remembered and sorely missed.
