She then followed in her mother’s footsteps and became a registered nurse. She demonstrated great skill and compassion and was subsequently promoted as a nursing supervisor for the night shift.She moved to Cheyenne in 2010 and resided with her father.
Meg was a unique and strong woman. She taught her daughters many important lessons and set a powerful example for them during their childhood. She taught them to be independent and to stand up for what they believed, no matter the consequences. As young girls, Meg taught them that “girls can do anything that boys can do,” and they grew up believing that. She showed her daughters the importance and power of working hard to accomplish their goals.
She is eternally loved by her family.
