Jesus came for our Megan, 9, on Thursday, October 1st at 10:14 p.m. at her medical home, Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. She was surrounded by her family and friends throughout the day. Megan had an infectious laugh, a soul-reaching smile, and an open heart to all who knew her.
Megan was born on Friday, October 8,1999, in Kalamazoo, MI. She lived in South Bend, IN until she was five years old and participated in the South Bend Schools SNAP Program for three years. After moving to Mishawaka in 2005, Megan attended kindergarten through third grade at Liberty Elementary School. She enjoyed spending time with her classmates and loved being read to.
Megan is survived by her parents, Ken and Lori Burrow, her sister, Monica Ann, all of Mishawaka; grandparents, Janet Boes of South Bend and David and Pamela Layson of Mishawaka, and her great-grandfather, David E. Layson of Edmonds, WA. Megan had two aunts, Lisa (Clint) Custer and Licia Dee (Anthony) Gerber. She had one cousin, Olivia Dee Gerber. Preceding her in death are her grandfather, Kenneth Boes, and her great-grandparents, Evelyn Layson and Fred and Joan Brown.
Megan had a very full life. Her family took her everywhere they went, including attending weekly church services, visits with family members and family vacations to Seattle WA and the Wisconsin Dells. Although she enjoyed going places, Megan really loved being with and interacting with people of all ages. She also enjoyed classical and jazz music and men's singing voices. Megan will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.
The family invites family, friends, and acquaintances to celebrate Megan's life and memory. Viewing will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 6th from 4-8 p.m. at Hahn Funeral Home, 505 W. 8th Street, Mishawaka, IN.

Christa CrawfordI was so sad to see that Megan passed away. She and Alexa are so close in age. I remember when we first talked on the phone when the girls were only a few years old. We still use Megan's wheelchair, now Ellie is using it. What a cute picture; that is a beautiful smile!! I don't know what Megan had been going through the last few weeks or months but I know she had a great life with her family and I hope those memories will comfort you all.
Dick Siler and FamilyI send my thoughts and prayers.. Condolences
to the family and love ones of Megan. May peace be with you all.
The Little-Seward FamilyMegan,
You will be sorely missed. Zoe thought the world of you and loved spending time with you and especially reading to you. Your time on earth was short, but you will live forever in our hearts and heaven.
The Eddy Family (mishawaka)Our prayers are with you. Monica, Briana says she is sorry for your loss. Megan has wings now. God bless you little angel, you will be missed.
VanessaI am so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter. It is so sad when we lose children to the enemy "Death". We know that God did not purpose for us to get sick and die, but because of the sin of our first parents, that is what we are forced to deal with. Trust in Jehovah when he tells us in His word at John 5:28, 29 and Psalms 37:29. There will be a resurrection and we well all see our loved ones again.
Lisa DimmittMy heart breaks for your family. May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead.
jen McMahanI am so sorry on the loss of your daughter, I lost my son Nate McMahan 2 years ago this week, he like your daughter spent way too much time at Riley's and Uof Chicago. He also had a infectious smile like your Megan and he made everyone around him smile too, looking at Megan's pic, she was the same way. He loved his family,kids like Nate and Megan make the world a better place. Your in my thoughts and prayers.
ValAlthough I did not know your family in person but only though your blog, Megan has touched me deeply. I know she is healed in Heaven and I have faith she will be watching over you always.
My prayers go out to your family.
Jamie RivasAt Riley we were blessed to be given the opportunity to share in the life of Megan. To have you trust even her final moments with us meant that we were able to appreciate even more the gentle way that you loved Megan. I know how Megan will be cherished throughout your entire lifetimes in celebrating the ways that she changed your lives forever.
We will miss you all!
