Morgan Fieri
After a courageous year of dealing with metastic melanoma, Morgan Fieri (aka Mimi Ferry) made her transition from this earthly plan. She was born on September 27, 1972 in Fortuna, CA and left this world on February 19, 2011. She spent the first 18 years of her life in Ferndale, along with her brother Guy where their parents, Jim & Penny Ferry, owned and operated Abraxas and Dave's Saddlery. Morgan rode and showed horses and was active in many sports during those years. She graduated from Ferndale High School in 1989, and went on to attend Sacramento State, American River Jr. College and Cal Poly, Pomona where she earned her degree in Hospitality from in 1994. Morgan traveled for a few years after college. She settled in Sebastopol, where her son Jules was born, in 1999. With her baby, she moved to Mt. Shasta where they lived for two years, before moving to Nevada City for three years. It was here Morgan began her career as a gifted massage therapist. In 2005, Morgan moved to Fairfax where Jules started kindergarten and she established a successful career in the healing arts. Morgan loved music and dancing. In recent years she played the African drums and danced in a West African dance group. She loved spending time in Mexico with her family. She and Jules volunteered at an orphanage in Colima, Mexico, that immensely impacted their lives and the lives of the 100 children living there. Morgan was a lover of life and collected friends wherever she went. She was a healer of hearts and bodies. The most important thing to her was being a great mom to Jules. She participated and supported him in all his endeavors (snowboarding, basketball, break dancing and hip-hop). Morgan lived a very conscious life. Because of her connection to life and the earth she practiced and promoted composting, recycling and organics. Being an inspired vegetarian, she contributed recipes to Guy's upcoming cookbook. Morgan was the founding director of her brother's foundation, "The Guy Fieri Foundation for Inspiration and Imagination". Morgan is survived by her partner, Annie Antepara, her 11 year old son Jules, her brother Guy and his wife, Lori and their sons Hunter & Ryder and her parents, Jim & Penny Ferry plus numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to an educational fund for Jules at: Jules Fieri, c/o Wells Fargo Bank, 200 B St., Santa Rosa, CA 95406 or to Nor Cal Hero Ride for Life, P.O. Box 302, Red Bluff, CA 96080 or a charity of your choice. Please sign the guest book at, click obits.

Dear Guy and Extended Family,
I watched an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives tonight and heard Guy say In memory of my sister Morgan I then went to search for more about Morgan. Guy, because you have become such a part of our household from Triple D, it touched my heart to watch the video of your sister's memorial service. What a beautiful lady! I pray continual good memories of her for you and your family and her son. I pray for God's blessings over all of you.

Hello Guy. I just watched one of your episodes today as your triple D shows are one of the best in my book.
Here it is years later and I had no idea that your sister had passed. I know how you spoke so highly of her on your episodes and even had her on some others. You wear her well tho. You have her in your heart definitely. Keep her there, she looks good on you . May God bless you and your entire family and hold you all close to his heart. Morgan's watching you.

We send many prayers to your family!! I truly enjoyed watching the shows Morgan was a part of! My heart goes out to all of you! My very special friend at the age of 46 passed away from malignant melanoma. So sad. A mole the dermatologist thought was ok. His wife basically begged him to remove it. It was cancer. Your sister has probably saved more lives than you will ever know. I made husband go to the Dermatologist after Tim died and he had a melanoma they had to remove. It was early he was lucky. The awareness of this is key. Morgan has taught us all a great lesson in early detection!!!! Very thankful to her and your family!! I just had a precancerous lesion on my arm removed. Looked like a bug bite. 2 weeks later went to the dermatologist. It was precancerous. Prayers to your family!!!!!!

As an alumni of csus, and american river college, and as Guy Fieri is such a wonderful, inspring person to me, I would like to tell the Fieri family that she will be forever in our hearts and homes. In fact, tomorrow, when I make Morgans veggie patties, I will be thinking of her, and your family. I miss Nor Cal, too, and watching triple D when Mr. Fieri is in Cali, heals my homesick heart. Best regards to each and every one of the Fieri family

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a brother 5/16/2012. Sometimes the heart hurts so much, but we must remember that our loved ones would want us to move on. Some day we will see their beautiful faces again until then we keep them alive in our hearts and minds,by the memories they left for us and by the love they gave us. Most important by the stories we tell of them keeps them right with us. I wish you all the best and peace of mind and heart. Guy, my brother was also my best friend to so I know how you feel. PEACE TO YOU!

I am sorry for everyone's loss. I can't imagine loosing a child. I know what it is like to loose brothers and a parent. Raising my Grandson makes me sad for him because of his loss. Even though his parents are not deceased, they aren't in his life right now. He has gone through hard times and I'm sure, he will see more. Lots of love, hugs and remembering good times will comfort everyone. Stay strong. I'm sure Morgan is watching over you.

I was just watching "Guy's Family Reunion" and that is how I learned of Morgan's passing. I am so sorry for your family's loss. I know that what is presented on TV does not always reflect reality, but I have always sensed that the love and camaraderie in your family is real and genuine. You are a testament to the fact that our loved ones live on with us in spirit, which is reflected in our daily actions. I hope Morgan is resting in peace, and takes comfort in knowing that you all are looking after her son and each other. And I hope you take comfort knowing that she is free from the shackles of her illness. Sending best wishes to you all.
