Megan Nicole Stethem (1994 - 2021)

Posted Sep 29, 2021 7:59 PM

Megan Nicole Stethem, 27, of Hemingford, Nebraska passed away at her parent's home in Hemingford on September 27, 2021.  She was born on March 26, 1994 in Rapid City SD.

Megan got her GED and was 1 class away from completing an associate’s degree in Business from Western Dakota Tech when she fell ill.

Megan enjoyed hiking, being outside, driving around listening to crude music and torturing her parent's cat Tiger.

She is survived by her loving grandparents, Kay and Murph Planansky of Hemingford; her parents, Ed "Slim" and Mary Planansky; her fianc√©, Casey Thomas of Rapid City, SD; her cat Mona, who also likes to torture Tiger; and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles. 

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Leo and Bonnie Stethem of Rapid City, SD.

Megan's family would like to thank Dr. Fattig of Alliance, who never gave up trying to find out what was ailing Megan; Dr. Willroy of Bridgeport, who treated Megan like a human instead of a person with a troubled past; Dr. Leisy of Bridgeport, who actually listened to us and prescribed the medications that would best help; the State of Colorado for legalizing cannabis, without this option Megan would have died in our home in 2018 because she couldn't get "REAL" medical help. 

Instead of cards Megan's family would like you to sign the initiative to get medical Marijuana legalized in the State of Nebraska.

Private family services will be held.  Online condolences may be left at
