Morgan passed away suddenly at her home in Carbondale on Friday, December 2, 2011. She was 20 years old. Her life in the mountains and snow were an inspiration to her, she had been waiting for it to snow, and her snow came that night.

She was born at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs on August 16, 1991.

Morgan was a student at Colorado Mountain College, with a love of philosophy, a passion for dance, and a constant appreciation for all forms of art. She was an extremely gifted artist and a loving person, and she saw and gave beauty to others through her photographs. Forever in tune with nature, she loved animals, music, playing piano, and singing.

Always smiling and always caring, she was an amazing person who touched absolutely everybody in her life. Morgan had the unique ability to bring a smile to all people lucky enough to have met her. She left our lives too soon and will be deeply missed by many. This amazing, creative, vibrant, and loving girl was an inspiration to all.

She was the bright light shining in the hearts of her parents Steve and Toni, sister Kristin, brother Ryan, niece Joni-Ann, nephews Odin and Jarred, her cat Mogwai, her puppy Wylah, and her horse TC.

There will be a celebration of Morgan's life on Tuesday, December 6, 2011, at 6 PM, held at Christ Community Church, 20351 Highway 82, Basalt, Colorado.
