It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of our beautiful Megan Kathleen Petz (Hasinoff) on October 14th, 2015 at the tender young age of 28.
Her memory will be forever cherished by her loving husband and best friend Nicolas, mother Darlene Hasinoff, brother Sean (Beverley) Hasinoff, sister Maureen Hasinoff, father Colin Hasinoff, mother and father in-law Barb and Rob Petz, brother in-law Alex Petz, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends. Megan is predeceased by a dear and special family friend Tim Beechey and both sets of grandparents, John and Florence Eyben and Dave and Mary Agnes Hasinoff.
Megan was born in St. Albert, Alberta on October 17, 1986. A beautiful person through and through Megan loved many during her short time and she was loved right back by all who knew her. Passionate and with a zest for life, Megan’s smile would light up a room and her positive outlook was infectious.
Her passions in life were her family, friends, co-workers and students at John A McDougall Elementary School. Megan had always desired to work with children and was thrilled when she was able to realize this dream by becoming a teacher and being given the opportunity to shape the minds of her young students.
Megan’s hobbies and interests always revolved around other people. A huge supporter of her husband, Nicolas, she rarely missed a lacrosse game and has encouraged and supported him to follow his dream of becoming a Police Officer. Yoga, working out, going for a walk or sharing a fabulous glass of red wine always involved a friend or two (or more).
Nicolas and the family would like to extend their extreme thanks and gratitude to all of the doctors and nursing staff of Unit 4A4 Neurology Intensive Care Unit and 4A2 Neurology Unit. Megan received the best possible care during her stay and everything possible was done to try and save her.
For those that wish to say their good-byes to Megan, there will be a viewing on Monday October 19th, 2015 from 6-9 pm at Serenity Funeral Services, 5311 91 Street. A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday October 21, 2015 from 6-9 pm at Delwood Community Center, 7515 Delwood Road. There will be an organized presentation from family and friends from 6:30-7:00 and then others will be welcomed to share their stories about Megan.
In lieu of flowers, you may send donations to the University of Alberta Hospital Foundation or S.T.A.R.S. Air Ambulance. There will be an opportunity to order a special “Megan Angel” through a Circle of Angels (a Community Megan Supported) at her Celebration of Life with all proceeds being donated to both the above mentioned charities.
