Megan Jenaé Rickey, age 24, died on January 14, 2020 in Seattle, Washington. Born in Wenatchee, Washington on August 20, 1995 she moved with her parents Jon and Karen Rickey and little sister Kristin to Mukilteo in 2001. She graduated from Kamiak High School and earned an AA degree through the ORCA Running Start program in June 2014. Megan went on to graduate from the University of Washington where she enjoyed attending social and athletic events, especially Husky football games.
Megan grew up playing sports, where she loved spending time with her teammates on the soccer field, volleyball court, track, or basketball court. She also loved music, including band, choir, school musicals, and concerts, where she made friends and cherished memories. Megan loved spending time with family, friends, and watching The Office with her cats in her lap. She also loved Lake Goodwin, Camp Firwood & Young Life summer camps, traveling, adventures, campfires, and the beach. Megan planned to move to San Diego in the future. We believe she is walking in the sunshine along the shoreline of a sandy beach in heaven now.
Megan is survived by her parents and sister, her grandparents David & Jeanne Rickey, Ann & Ron Riedasch, Pam Freemon, and Ginny Harker, her uncles and aunts Chris & Debbie Freemon, Brad & Pam Methner, Dean & Lynn Knox, Brian Knox, “Uncle” Chet & Amy Burhen, her cousins Nathan & Andrew Knox, Carly & Will Methner, and Madison Freemon, and loving friends including Nikki Tuttle, her best friend since first grade. She is proceeded in death by her grandfather Dan Freemon.
