Morgan Hutcherson, the young Cottontown woman who lost her battle with brain cancer Sunday, was laid to rest Thursday afternoon.
Morgan passed away at her home after a series of seizures.
“She was in peace, she was in no pain and like her 16-month battle, she passed on her own terms,” her family wrote on Facebook.
The 20-year-old woman was initially diagnosed with brain cancer on March 31, 2013.
Doctors were able to successfully remove 98% of the tangerine-sized tumor days later, but the tiny remains left behind spread at an alarming rate.
The funeral took place at the Phillips Robinson Funeral Home on Gallatin Road.
Morgan’s grandmother, Linda Hutcherson, read a poem. A former teacher delivered the message.
The burial followed at the Spring Hill Cemetery. There was a butterfly release. Friends said Morgan loved butterflies and they were special to her.
Family and friends attending the funeral wore purple and lime green shirts to raise awareness about brain cancer.
