Megan Danielle Koltiska, passed away surrounded by loved ones on Friday, October 8, 2021 at Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree, Colorado, 2 years after being diagnosed with mucinous ovarian cancer. Megan was thirty-one years old; born on May 2, 1990, to parents Robert and Dawn Koltiska in Laramie, Wyoming. Megan realized her love of horses at a young age, and through her sheer determination, became a Champion of the Colorado Hunter Jumper Association in 2007. Shortly after, in 2008, Megan became a graduate of Ponderosa High School, then returned to Laramie to attend The University of Wyoming to earn her Bachelors in Social Work. Upon completion of her education, Megan discovered her fervent love for travel and world culture. Just as everything else she pursued, Megan immersed herself in South American culture and became bilingual in the use of Spanish. Her call for travel was not finished there. Megan independently toured across Europe where she would continue to meet many lifelong friends.
Megan made a life she loved during the past eight years of living in Sheridan, Wyoming. As a 4th generation resident of Sheridan, Megan loved living on the ranch with her horses and being close to extended family. As a developing entrepreneur, Megan had aspirations to build a thriving business focused on entertainment and hospitality in the downtown area. Most importantly, this is where she met her Fiancé Jaron Michael Mentock who she was due to wed in September of 2022. Together they were able to pursue their passions for fly fishing, kayaking, hiking and exploring the outdoors.
While Megan lived every moment of her life to the fullest, she valued her family and loved ones above all else. Megan is survived by her Mother and Father, Robert and Dawn Koltiska, sister Kristine Koltiska, brother Brandon Koltiska, niece Myka Koltiska, fiancé Jaron Mentock and her beloved dog and companion, Tyler. All who knew her were inspired by her courage, humor, kindness and love of live. With all of the love of her family and friends, she will truly be missed and we wait for the time when we will be reunited once again.
