We lost our beloved matriarch,
the brightest light in our lives,
who left us peacefully in her sleep at home
early the morning of Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
The family appreciates your respect for privacy
during this difficult time.
Plans are now underway for a celebration of Merri Dee’s life later this spring. As soon as we lock in date, time and venue—we will update this page with an invitation for you to join us. Until then, we invite you to hug those you love extra tight, smile and say hello to everyone you meet, and reach out and mentor someone — the very traits of our beloved friend, and broadcast legend, Merri Dee.
