Delta Gamma Fraternity Mourns the Loss of Collegiate Member Megan Mooney


Columbus, Ohio [July 15, 2021]— It is with deep sorrow that we share the passing of Eta Delta-North Florida member, Megan Mooney, on Saturday, July 31, 2021.

An undergraduate student at the University of North Florida, majoring in Criminology and minoring in Psychology, Megan joined Delta Gamma in 2017. Megan was expected to graduate with her Bachelor of Arts degree in December 2021. Known for her selfless heart, giving personality, and love of the beach, Megan also possessed a wonderful athletic passion and talent.


Megan’s obituary reads, “She was a very humble girl, despite her darling looks and sweet personality. We will never forget her gorgeous smile that would light up any room she entered.”


Fraternity President Wilma Johnson Wilbanks, Alpha Psi-Mississippi, shared “We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our incredibly special sister, Megan. Her Delta Gamma sisters, her family and friends, and all those who knew her will carry with them memories of Megan’s positive and infectious spirit. On behalf of our Fraternity Council and entire sisterhood, we are sending love and strength to the members of our Eta Delta-North Florida chapter, the University of North Florida family and Megan’s loved ones.”


We send our deepest condolences to her family and friends. To learn more about Megan and the services being held to celebrate her life, please visit here.
