How do I describe my dear daughter's life? Meagan Brinson Noles was born June 1985, and the nurses proclaimed her the loudest baby in the nursery. Until she left us on January 6, 2021, she "jibber jabbered" her way through life. Her mother Diane Brinson (Bob Spector), father Patrick Noles (Nancy) and brother Ethan Noles (Amanda) would give anything to hear her voice again.
What Meagan's passing engendered was an immense response from more friends than I can count. Being the social media mavens that they are, they opened their hearts, conveyed memories and shared photos.
Loving, hilarious, selfless, sarcastic, compassionate and fiercely loyal are apt adjectives they used to describe Meagan. She was an aspiring writer, self-publishing two books. Determined to graduate from college and with the support of those who knew her, Meagan worked through the debilitating pain of a lengthy illness to complete her junior year.
Meagan loved the movies, hence the moniker "Movie Meagan." I waited in many a line with her to see all of the "Harry Potter" and "Lord of the Rings" movies. She could characterize every role and detail every scene of every Marvel movie.
In addition to her parents and brother, Meagan leaves behind nieces and nephews she adored, as well as uncles Darrel (Janice) Brinson and David (Judi) Brinson and stepbrother Alexander (Rhiannon) Annen. Her beloved puppy Leia Loki now lives with Gamma. Meagan was preceded in death by grandparents David and Doris Brinson and Grady and Josephine Noles, brother Colin Noles and stepbrother AJ Annen.
We will celebrate Meagan's life when it is safe to gather. If you would like to make a donation in Meagan's memory, please do so at the UW-Madison Foundation's Young Writers Camp Fund via http://supportuw.org/giveto/youngwriterscamp or to the Endometriosis Foundation via 'endofund.org'
May Meagan's precious soul rest in peace
I knew Megan since she was a little kid, when she and my daughter would occasionally play together and her mom and I worked together at DNR. That was 45 years ago, and Diane and I are still close. The girls still occasionally kept in touch, and I kept in touch with Megan through her mother.. Megan struggled for years with health problems, but every time I saw her, she was just as bright, pleasant and determined as always. Despite her own challenges, her mom has always been there for me when I needed a friend. Never in my wildest dreams did I think something like this would happen. I am devastated for Megan, Diane and their family, including brother Ethan. No one should ever lose a child, and Diane has now lost two. We have all lost a bright and determined young woman, and she will be sorely missed. My sincerest condolences to her family. I will always be there for Diane, as she has been for me.
