Meghan Miranda

Meghan Miranda, 32, of Kansas City, KS, formerly of Lee’s Summit, MO, passed away on January 10, 2021 in Shawnee Mission, KS.

Meghan was born October 17, 1988 in Overland Park, KS. She attended school in the Olathe and Lee’s Summit School Districts. Naturally athletic, she participated in track and played soccer and basketball during her youth. In high school she played golf. She was also a member of the Newspaper and Yearbook staff. She graduated from Lee’s Summit North High School in 2007. In 2013, Meghan graduated from UMKC with a degree in Urban Studies. While she spent much of her career in banking and was most recently beginning work in insurance, her passion was helping lower income families get safe and affordable housing.

Meghan loved to spend time outdoors, especially in the mountains. She enjoyed photography, exploring the world around her, sports (especially the Kansas City Chiefs and KU Jayhawks), listening to music, and spending time with her and her partner’s families. Meghan left a lasting impression on so many people. She is remembered as genuine, kind, loving, compassionate, vivacious, curious, funny, and cautiously adventurous. She was an avid fan of the TV show “Friends” and lived out the theme song of “I’ll be there for you.”

Meghan is lovingly remembered by her partner, Katy Barnes, and their puppy Mahomie; grandparents Francis and Pat Weber; sister Brittany Blankenship (Ben) and niece Ezra; half-sister Sami Weickert; half-sister Heather Stanley (and family); great-aunt Jeannie Heinen (Dale); and uncle Brad Weber (Phillip); and many more family and friends. Meghan joins her mother, Pamela Weber, in Heaven.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

    I first met Meghan at Mizzou as a freshman in 2007, we became roommates and fast friends. We loved to cruise around listening to music (esp Zeppelin and Wilco), going on photo expeditions, concerts, watching South Park (she even named her first dog “Butters”), long boarding, exploring Columbia, and the STL Cardinals. Even though we moved and drifted apart as the years went by, I will never forgot her friendship during the many ups and downs of life. Meghan was a great friend, a caring person, and she could always make everyone laugh with her quick wit and humor. We had so many good times together that I will always cherish and remember.

    I’m so sorry Katy. I know Meghan wanted us to meet. I wish I hadn’t put it off. My treatments and corona virus stood in the way. I wish I hadn’t let it. I will miss you Meghan. Until we meet again.
    Love Jeanne?
