Megan was born on April 1, 1989, in Kamloops, B.C., to Dave and Deb Worthington. Sadly, Megan passed away suddenly at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital, Clearwater, B.C., on February 21, 2011. She was 21 years of age.
Megan was a happy, energetic child who loved to go camping and fishing. Her Mom and Dad would pack up everything except the kitchen sink and away the family would go on their next adventure. She loved to go to the fishing derbies at North Barriere Lake.
Megan loved horses. She was also a very creative person. She was always drawing, writing and she loved listening to music. She painted a masterpiece on her bedroom wall and filled it with pictures of family and friends. She also painted some beautiful pictures that her family will cherish.
Megan graduated high school in Barriere and started a family with her boyfriend Tyler. She was definitely the motherly type, so when she found out she was pregnant she was quite happy about becoming a Mom. And a great Mom she was. Megan and Tyler’s daughter Cadence was born in August of 2008. She was the light of Megan’s life. Megan doted on her and gave her all the love she could.
Their family expanded in July 2010 when they had their son Asher. Both Megan and Tyler were happy to have had a boy and a now complete family.
Megan was predeceased by her grandfather, William Sollows, her father in law, Art Howatt, her aunt Marlene Glanville, her uncle in law Dennis Christian and her cousin Steven Kyle. She is survived by her husband of four years Tyler Cisna, her children Cadence and Asher Cisna, her parents Dave and Deb Worthington, sisters Ashley Worthington (Sam Healey Jr.), Nicole Worthington (Mitch Friars), best friends, Maggie, Linda, Ashley and Brittney, parents in law Jim and Brenda Tomyn, sisters in law Tammy Szola, Annette (Les) Streek, Tracy (Dallas) Dunn, grandparents Nora Pottage, Marilyn and Thomas Glanville, Donald Sollows, Joan and Albert Keichinger as well aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many extended family and friends.
Megan’s life was her family. Visits home and to her inlaws, keeping Tyler in line and caring for and loving her children were so very important to Megan. Her biggest strength was the encouragement she got from friends and family, always encouraging her to do whatever she wanted to do in life. She was a beautiful, talented young woman who unfortunately will never get to live to her full potential.
The best gift we can give Megan is to keep her memories close, and pass all of them on to her children and let them know what an amazing person their mother was, and that they were her whole world.
Megan you will be deeply missed. Your spirit will live on in the hearts and smiles of your children and in the memories of everyone that knew you. We will not say goodbye to you, only “Till we meet again”.
