Megan Lynne Sellers

came joyfully into the world on July 12, 1975 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. There she was received by her very first audience (and cheering squad) her mama and daddy. Megan continued throughout her life to spread joy and light wherever she was. She loved to laugh and to make people laugh.

She welcomed each of her three siblings with love and tender care. The only time she abandoned this loving nature was when she felt the need to beat up her brother who was bugging her.

Megan grew up rather too quickly when her mother and father divorced after her fourth-grade year. She took on a lot of responsibility for her siblings and the home, but she was indefatigably cheerful and developed her quick wit and legendary sense of humor.

Megan attended Central High School in Phoenix where she joined the marching band and exceled in academics. She graduated with honors and headed off to the University of Arizona. Megan thought she wanted to be a doctor but instead settled on being an astrophysicist. She became engaged on the day she graduated, complete with a moon and stars that were on the top of her mortarboard. She wanted to be sure we knew where she was! She was hired by Raytheon before her graduation and rapidly rose up through the ranks to becoming a manager.

In addition to working at Raytheon on our country’s first national ballistic missile defense system, Megan had two children who were the treasures of her heart. She adored her children and loved her time with them, but she also helped them to become independent and competent young people.

She met her life partner and love of her life, Lewis Lane, while playing on a softball team. He appreciated her quick wit, her joie de vivre and her adventurous spirit. She felt cherished.

Megan was stricken with pancreatic disease while she was a young working mom. Years of suffering with no diagnosis finally ended with hopes of a fresh start. In 2012 she had a total pancreatectomy with a transplant of islet cells. It was a difficult surgery and recovery, but she approached it with her usual sparkle and bubbles.

Sadly, Megan suffered from acute pain and nausea for the rest of her life. She endured many subsequent surgeries and procedures in the hopes of feeling better. Her outlook was always positive and hopeful. In spite of continual setbacks with her health, she was a fiercely loving mother and always there for her children, Lew and her many friends.

Megan always looked for ways to help others along their own health journey. Despite her hardship and disability, she became a volunteer nurse and was active with Pancreatic organizations and patients to help others from her own experience. She would be extremely grateful if you are able to contribute to her favorite Pancreatic Cancer organization:


Megan left us to go to Heaven to join all of her grandparents and many others who loved her dearly. She left us with an enormous hole in our lives, which we will try to fill with precious, joyful memories. She is survived by her beloved Lewis Lane and her two adored children, Cameryn Kisthardt and Kyle Kisthardt. She also leaves behind her parents, Jeffrey Sellers and Susan Oram; her sister (and partner in crime) Erin Kvist; and her two beloved brothers, Nathan (Alexis) and Kevin (Nicole) Sellers (in truth, she sometimes still felt the need to beat up her brother). She is also survived by nine nieces and nephews.

There will be a private memorial for Megan on Sunday, August 15. Conditions permitting, we hope to have a huge celebration of her life next summer near her birthday in July where we will welcome all who loved Megan.

Please take a moment to tell all the people in your life how much you love them. Megan did, and we know she would want you to experience the same joy in life as she did.
