(INDIANAPOLIS) Alpha Gamma Delta is saddened to announce that collegian Megan Simons, Epsilon Nu-University of Central Oklahoma, entered Chapter Grand on September 12, 2014, as a result of a courageous battle with brain cancer. Megan was a native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. 

Megan was known in her chapter for her extreme positivity, friendly smile and passion for life. Shortly after her Initiation, she received news that her cancer had returned, and she moved home to start treatment. Despite it all, Megan would continue to show up for dinner and the chapter meeting on Monday evenings.  

"When I met her during recruitment, she cried little tears of joy every day she visited Alpha Gam because she instantly felt at home and was meant to be a part of our sisterhood," said Alexis Ridenour, a member of Epsilon Nu Chapter and Megan's sister-mother. "She inspired her sisters and the Greek community at UCO, living her life to the fullest while she was the one facing the hardest battle." 

The funeral was held at Hahn-Cook Funeral Home in Oklahoma City on September 16, 2014. Both Epsilon Nu Chapter and Megan's family and friends are in Alpha Gamma Delta thoughts during this difficult time. The appropriate staff members and volunteers will continue working with the chapter to ensure they are receiving support and guidance. Sympathy cards may be mailed to the chapter at 425 North Jackson, Edmond, OK 73034. The family has asked to consider a donation to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in lieu of flowers.
