Megan Leigh Brown 2/2/1983 ~ 7/25/2009
Our daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, and friend passed away after a four year battle with ovarian cancer.
Megan was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a child, she lived in Humble, Texas and Jenks, Oklahoma. She moved to Park City in 1994. She graduated in 2001 from Park City High where she was on the Dance and Academic Decathlon teams. Megan graduated from Mary Washington University in Fredericksburg, Virginia with a degree in English in 2005. While in college, she danced and choreographed for the school's performing arts group. She returned to Utah following graduation and discovered that Park City was where she wanted to live forever. She was last employed at Park City Mountain Resort. Megan's great loves were family and friends, great literature, not-so-great trashy romance novels, dance of all types, travel, and the Utah Jazz.
Megan leaves behind her parents, Kevin and Marie Brown (Park City), a sister, Sydney Lynne Brown (Baton Rouge, Louisiana), grandparents, Darrell and Lavonne Brown (Conway, Arkansas), Curney and Shirley Lyons (Gonzales, Louisiana), numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins, and countless friends.
Memorial service will be held on Thursday, July 30, 2009, at 3:00 p.m. at the Park City Community Church, 4501 Highway 224, in Park City. At Megan's request, friends are invited to wear bright, happy colors so she can see us from above.
In lieu of flowers, family has asked the donations be made to The Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center, PO Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210, or The Huntsman Cancer Foundation, Memorial and Honor Program, 500 Huntsman Way, Salt Lake City, UT, 84108. Special thanks to the many health care professionals who assisted Megan and her family in this difficult journey.
