Megan was born in Coronado, California on December 18, 1957. Her family moved to Fremont in the early 1960’s where she went to Mission San Jose High school and graduated in 1976. From there, she attended Hayward Cosmetology College, where she graduated and earned her state license to begin work as a beautician, which she did for several years. Megan married Kory Scott in 1981 and shortly after, started their family. Megan then opened her own child daycare business that she operated out of their home for 38 years. Over those 38 years, she watched over and cared for many children, both big and small, all of whom she loved and nurtured with all her heart.
Megan was a beautiful spirit that lit up the room the moment she walked into it. Her beautiful smile, sweet personality and loving nature was enjoyed by everyone who met her. She loved family camping trips, spending time with her granddaughters and many beautiful, romantic sunsets out on the lake during her and Kory’s overnight boat trips. She was a good listener and easy to talk to. She never judged anybody, loved unconditionally and always had gentle advice to offer. She was a fabulous cook and if you were lucky enough to eat a meal prepared by her, you would never forget it.
Above all else, Megan was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother to all of her family, friends and anyone else who met her. She was an absolutely beautiful soul we were blessed with on this earth. It is obvious God called her home to be an angel for the rest of humanity; this can be the only reason why she left us so soon. We loved her with all of our hearts and souls. We will miss her, but we’ll never forget her. God bless her!
Services for Megan will be held on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at Berge- Pappas-Smith Chapel of the Angels in Fremont, California at 2 pm with a reception afterward. All are welcome to come and celebrate this beautiful soul.
