Megan Elliott

Our dear friend, sweet sister, precious daughter, loving mother and beloved nana passed on peacefully (but not without fireworks) on July 1, 2013, heading off no doubt in the arms of angels for a land of light, peace, love and joy.

We will miss her good humour, her passion for life, the love and compassion she shared so willingly with all of us; her easy laughter, generosity, and her incredible work ethic and commitment to anything that drew people together and reminded us all of our shared journey as human beings.

Megan will be remembered as a positive force in our community: from her days as manager of Morning Mountain Ski Hill, through Streetfest and as owner of Kootenay Cobbler and Silver Lining (now Shoe La La). Most especially will she be remembered and dearly missed by her far-flung but closely knit community of Sufis, for her organizational talents, her commitment, and the joy she brought to everyone she touched. And celebrated every day by her kids and granddaughter ~ Steve, Erin and Kaija.

A private Celebration of Life in Megan’s honour will be held on August 24th. The venue was chosen by Megan; the facility is not large and so cannot accommodate all that would like to attend. Close personal friends and family are welcome to contact Geoffrey Carter by email ( for further details.

With so much love shared, we will always hold Megan in our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sufis Hawaii or to any organization of your choice that researches or sponsors alternative methods for the treatment and healing of those afflicted with cancer. Megan contributed deeply to the Maui Sufi camp and worked hard to give youth the opportunity to share in camp life. Megan would be honored in the financial support of her Maui community and spiritual family.

For a contribution to Sufis Hawaii in Megan’s name contact Jason Groode,
