In Loving Memory of

Meghan  Elise Stivers
May 24, 1985 - July 29, 2011


Family and friends mourn the untimely and tragic passing of Meghan Elise Stivers, 26. Upon leaving work at the Best Western Tulalip Inn, she was struck by a driver, who was evading the police in the city of Marysville. Articles about accident

Meghan graduated from Mariner High School in 2003 and attended Northern Michigan University. She was currently studying accounting at Everett Community College, while working full time at the hotel for the last several years.
Meghan was an adventurous and independent young woman. She enjoyed the outdoors, swimming, music and spending time with family and friends.
She is survived by her mother, Janice Case Stivers,; sister and brother-in-law, Kendra and Sean Wilmott; aunt and uncle, Joan and Bob Case of Tucson, Arizona; as well as extended family across the county.
She will be joining her father, Daniel Jay Stivers; and maternal grandmother, Anna Schneider Case, who preceded her in death.

A celebration of life to honor Meghan was held.
In lieu of flowers the family requested donations be made to the Washington Chapter of MADD, PO Box 3936, Silverdale, WA 98383.


Virtual flowers for Meghan

As Meghan's family plans her Celebration of Life I prepared a place for her here, at Life Ever After.

I searched for the perfect music for Meghan's page. Kendra said she liked the Backstreet Boys.
 This song  NEVER GONE is perfect.  Meghan will be never gone.

In Memory Of My Daughter

Meghan Elise Stivers
5/24/85 -7/29/11



It has been two long years since you were killed by a drunk driver.
The loss of a life is a tragedy. The loss of a child is devastating. I miss you each and every day.
I wish I could see your huge smile, hear your laughter, I wish you were still here! My heart has been broken into pieces.
The only saving grace from this tragedy is I know you are now safe and will never be hurt again.
I also don't want your death to be in vain so I continue telling your story and how your death was so preventable.
All my love forever,
Mom
DUI is not an accident, it is a choice!
Please don't drink and drive! -

 Sweet Jan.. I left a message for you on the Guestbook Registry...
I have been having a hard few days. I thought things were going well. Nothing was going bad or wrong to spark such feelings.
I guess just the emptiness of not having our girls here is enough? Some days is more than I can take and this past week has been a hard one.
I wish we didn't have to go thru this crap... Love you!!

Comments from face book

from Janice Case Stivers
Today would have been Meghan's 28th birthday if her life had not been taken.
Instead of celebrating her birthday we will be scattering her ashes in Leavenworth today.
We went white water rafting, her idea, there the month before she was killed.
I love and miss you terribly, my youngest daughter!





from  Kendra Wilmott
Today is May 24th and Meghan should be turning 28 years old.
We should be celebrating life, teasing and laughing.
My sisters life should not have been cut short because of such a stupid reason. Drunk drivers are dumb. Don't be one.

This Memorial day weekend make new memories with those you love, celebrate those we've lost and please remember to be safe. ♥
 

 
Wishing you a

from all of us.

.

Sept. 23rd Kendra posted on facebook.


Unveiled the sign today. I remember driving out to the reservation and trying to count all the signs. There are so many I could never keep track.
I never thought my only sister would have one. Sad start to the day. RIP Meg. You are missed everyday.

 


Cannot believe that it has been almost 14 months since Meghan was killed.
Thank you Snohomish County for the wonderful sign in her memory.
I miss her so much! RIP my youngest daughter.

My Meghan,

I awake each day with great sorrow and sadness without you being here.
You were taken from us over 13 months ago and I can hardy believe it has been that long since I last was able to hold you,
talk to you, hear your laughter or see your wonderful smile.

Oct 13th we will "Walk Like MADD" in your honor at Seattle Center with Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Our team name is "Meghan's Marchers"!!!!

I miss you so much.

Love Mom xxoxox

My Meghan, My Meghan.....

I think of you daily and miss you so much; your great smile, your quirky personality and your big heart.

I've been told that the second year is harder than the first. I guess they are right. It is really hard dealing with you not being here.

I love and miss you so much.... Mom

 

July 30, 2012
It's been a year now and I still find it hard to believe this happened. I share your story a lot. I think it's important that people learn from your tragedy.
We miss having you around. I have a really hard time driving by the crash site. It scares me every time.
But its a constant reminder to not Drink and Drive. We miss you and I'm sure your watching over your mom.

July 29, 2012

I will never forget the night you were taken from us. It has been a year tonight, it seems like yesterday, it seems like a life time!

I miss your smile, your laughter, your funny personality. I miss you!!!!

I still can't believe this happened or that you are gone. My heart is still shattered into pieces, some pieces I will never get back.

I wish I had you back but know that I am being selfish since you are safe and will never be hurt again.

I love you so much my baby girl!!

Rest in peace knowing I love and miss you terribly.

Mom xoxoxo

One year ago today you were taken from your family and friends through a horrible accident. Life has gone on with the thought of seeing you again.


Your family posted their memories on facebook. I am adding them here.

One year ago today my sister woke up, went to work and never made it home. Life can change in the blink of an eye.
You are incredibly missed. RIP Meghan.

January 21, 2012
Dear Meghan,

I still can't believe you are gone. It has been 25 weeks since you were taken from us.
The court proceedings are over and the judge gave him a sentence close to the maximum in this state, which is way to lenient for murder.

I thought of you so much this week during our snow storm. You would have thought it was great and loved the 10 inches of snow.

I miss you and love you, my Meghan.

You will always be with me.

Love ya,
Mom xoxox

January 04, 2012
The new year is here but without you. I know you are in a place where you can never be hurt again so I am glad for that.

My heart is sad that I will never be able to hug you or hold you, never see you graduate from college, walk you down the aisle at your wedding or hold your child.

Know that you are dearly missed by so many and your absence leaves us with heavy hearts.

Give Grandma a hug for me and wish her a Happy Birthday.

Love to you both!

So unnecessary, so unexpected, so sad that you are no longer here to share your smile and laughter to those around you.
My heart is still shattered and your absence leaves such a huge whole in our lives.
Rest in peace My Meghan and know how much you were loved and are missed!

They walk for you today Meghan, your family and friends.   Walk Like MADD Hoping to make the laws stricter for drunk drivers. The person that created your demise didn't come after you personally, he didn't even know you. You were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Still he will pay for his crime. I know that no matter what happens to him, it will never bring you back or justify why you had to leave. I know in my heart that you are watching over your mom and sister and you are with our family in heaven. Give them the strength to go on, give them the knowledge that someday they will see you again.
Margaret

 My Meghan, My Meghan....Another Friday night has come and gone. It has been 13 weeks and we miss you so very much.

We will WALK LIKE MADD in your memory against drunk drivers on Saturday at Greenlake.
We have a team, Meghan's Marchers, and about 25 people will be participating and showing support.

All my love my daughter!

Meghan - you were so small when I last saw you and had grown up to be a beautiful young woman.
I'm saddened and hurt that you were taken away from your family so needlessly.
Jan, my heart goes out to you. The last time we met, you were happily buying Meghan a bike for Christmas.
I hope the memories of your daughter and the smiles that she brought into your lives, now bring you and Kendra peace.
much love, Em

It is week 10 since you were taken from us. I miss you so much. I was always so proud of you.
You mastered and worked through many challenges from the time you were little til you left us.
You grew, got stronger and worked hard to achieve your goals. I am still amazed at how organized you always were with your lists.
I will always remember the folders for each college you wanted to apply to and all the research you presented while deciding on the one to attend. You loved the snow and the cold so of course it was off to Northern Michigan for you.
You had an amazing spirit of adventure and were never afraid to explore new things, even if it meant going by yourself.

Rest in Peace My Meghan knowing that I love you dearly!

Friday night is here again. It's week 9 since you were murdered. It seems it's getting harder each week.
Work keeps my mind busy but you are always nearby in my thoughts.

Your presence is everywhere in the house and we miss you so much.

I have taken your words to heart and I am doing those things you thought I needed to do.

The penalty for your death is like a slap in the face, maximum imprisonment 54 months.
Justice will definitely not be served in your case or for other victims of DUI Vehicular Homicide in Washington state.
So I have a found a cause to join and try to help get this law changed so the penalty fits the crime.

I know none of this will bring you back or change the current penalty in your case, but hopefully some other mom, in the future,
will feel justice for their child has been better served if this law can be changed.

Wish me luck!

Love you forever, my Meghan.

This is the most recent article about the accident that killed my sister. He was formally charged yesterday. The hearing will be monday at 1pm.
Facebook friends comment.

Richel Newborg
What a horrible man. Greedy and without care for those around him.

Rachel Young
 It seems that everything that happened that night shows his lack of respect for human life. I hope they convict him and the only daylight he sees again is from his "recess time" in the prison yards! WTF?!?! And he's done this before? It's about time he learned his lesson!
 
Janice Case Stivers
 The maximum penalty for his crimes is 54 months in WA State. This law is a slap in the face to the victim and their families. It is an election year, please write/talk to those running for office about getting this law changed so the penalty fits the crime. Of course this will not help my Meghan but possibly the next family to lose a loved one won't feel the same sting we feel.
 
Rachel Young
 Wow!!!! Only 54 months? And a repeat offender? So then what, he gets out and does it again? That is ridiculous! I haven't lived in WA for 5 years, but if you could post some contact info, I would definitely write some letters. I didn't know Megan, but no family should have to go through what you all are........ Your family is in our prayers!
Kendra Wilmott
The 54 months takes into account the three felony charges (vehicular homicide, hit & run and assault). If it were only the vehicular homicide charge it would be even less time. Because his previous conviction was more than five years ago the courts don't even take it into account when sentencing. I am looking into getting contact info for the politicians who can help us get this law changed. Your help writing letters would mean so much to us!!.... Random factoid, but...did you know you can get a longer sentence for peeking up a lady's skirt with a shoe mirror in king county than the sentence for vehicular homicide?

Nicole Keith
I am sick to my stomach reading this. I can't even begin to imagine what that must feel like to your family and I hope I never will. This sentence is such a cheap way to acknowledge a human life! I can't believe it, I really can't believe it.....I'm so sorry for what your family must be going through. I too would definitely write some letters to protect our community from a$$ wipes like this getting the opportunity to tear through peoples lives like a tornado and then walk on home as if they broke a loitering law or something?! This is CRAZY!

To My Meghan,

Week 8 is here and you are gone.

Overwhelming sadness and sorrow fill my days. Your absence creates an ache that will never go away.
I miss your smile and laugh so much. You were such a lovely young lady and I was so very proud of you.

I will always love and miss you, my youngest daughter.

Rest in Peace. Love Mom xoxo

Well it has been 6 weeks, last night, since you were taken from us so tragically.
I wrote you last night but the post was not printed. No sure why, since it said nothing that has not been printed in all the papers.

You were a beautiful daughter with a huge smile and great sense of humor.

We are all trying to stay strong during this difficult time.

You are in my thoughts every day and I miss you more than I can ever express.

All my love forever, my angel.
Mom xoxo
 

September 10, 2011

Today marks 6 weeks since you were killed. He was finally arrested Wed, day 40, after your murder.
We went to the bail hearing and I pleaded your case for denial of bail.
Unfortunately that did not happen but the judge did double his bail amount to $500,000.00.
Maybe he won't be able to raise the bail and the rest of the world can feel safer.

We are all trying to stand strong even though our hearts are heavy with your loss.

You were a beautiful, wonderful person with a kind heart, warm smile, funny sense of humor and I miss you each and every day.
My love always! Mom xoxo
 

September 08, 2011
I miss you Meghan. there isn't a hour that goes by that i don't think of you and your family.
I still cant believe this is real. I will forever regret that we didn't speak the last couple of years. you were my best friend for like 15 years.
I love you so very much! and now whenever I hear backstreet boys I cry. I'm sure u love that. :)

She was a beautiful girl, and probably much like her mother.

After 40 days to get his affairs in order and spend time with his family, Randy Sedy was arrested for one count of eluding a police vehicle and one count of vehicular homicide. The article might not mention his name, but he's listed on the Snohomish county jail bookings website ... so why can't I.

Jan,

I, too, was out of town when the accident occurred and learned about it when I read your touching Letter to the Editor.
I am so very sorry about your daughter. I never met her but I remember how proud you were of both your daughters and what a great mom you were/are.
I can't remember who the performer was but I recall how you bought tickets to take your daughters and yourself to a concert they badly wanted to see
 (maybe around 2002)? I thought that was great!

I am just blown away by the news. I just saw you at Sorticulture in June!
My how life can change so drastically so quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you cope with your tragic loss.
I am so very sorry, Jan.
Vicki Von Stubbe-Lust, Everett, Washington

September 03, 2011
Dear Jan, I am so very sorry for the tragic loss of your beautiful daughter Meghan.

I was out of town a great part of the summer, and heard about the senseless accident, but never put it together that it was your daughter until I read your letter in the paper this morning.

I can not even imagine the pain, sorrow and anger you are experiencing, but I do know you, and I know you are surrounded by your family and friends who love and support you, so I know you will survive this nightmare.

Please accept my deepest sympathies, and know you are always in my thoughts. Sending you tons of love and support.
Pam Thomas, Everett, Washington

September 03, 2011
 

Well my darling daughter, tonight makes 5 weeks since you were murdered/killed, what ever the legal system wants to call it. It definitely was not an accident because this person, I use the word loosely, made a choice and that choice did not hurt him or his family. No only you and your family have been hurt and torn apart by his lack of judgment and poor choices.

I have finally moved from the denial stage and realize you are not coming home. Moey misses you and looks for you each morning. I miss you so very much. Goodnight MY ANGEL... I love you. Mom xoxo

Tonight will be 4 weeks since you were taken from us. My heart has been shattered into a million pieces.
I still can't believe you are gone. I miss you so much Meg.
I am trying to be strong but this is just so hard and such a senseless waste of your life because of an irresponsible, selfish person.

I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Received a letter from Janice, she sent a copy of the memorial program.
She says in her letter, "We had people write a thought, idea, word or prayer on a piece of paper and then dropped them into a votive campfire. We had an evening Memorial at the park and the service turned out very special. Lots of friends, co-workers and family to share stories, hugs and tears. My heart was touched so many times that day by people I didn't know and those I hadn't seen for sometime. Her orthodontist and college math professor came and introduced themselves and spoke so highly of her.
Hopefully the pain will diminish a little each day."

Jan & Kennie Sue - I am SO SO sorry you have had this terrible tragedy in your lives.
Megan Muffin was a special young woman! I have so many special memories of fun and happy times spent with you 3 and me and my 3 kids.
When the kids were young, Meg always made Danny feel a part of our "girl" outings!
I will miss trying to annoy her and her trying to annoy me back!
Jan, I have told you several times in the past few years how very impressed I am with Meg,
and all the responsible things she's been doing to make a good place for herself in the world.
It is heartbreaking, and such a waste that her life was cut so short!
Thinking of you always. Love, Mar

To my funny, giggly, independent daughter Meghan I will miss you so very much.
You provided me with such joy, happiness and wonderful memories. Rest in peace knowing how much you were loved,

family and coworkers who came to say good bye.
