Age 76, of Honolulu, passed away November 16, 2011 at her home. Born April 27, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois.

She was our much beloved mother who raised us well and a loving wife to our dearly departed father. She was at one time a Catholic School Teacher, at one time an award winning artist, and at one time a dedicated Navy Relief Volunteer. She was always a voracious reader, always a history buff, and always up to date on politics. She loved classic books, classic music, and Broadway musicals. She gave us the moral backbone with which to guide our decisions and the grit and determination to succeed in life.

She was preceded in death by her true love and husband Roland Spencer Merrill, Uncle Mike Cervin, Aunt Alma Cervin and Aunt Gertrude Yetter.

She is survived by sons, Matthew Webb Merrill and Jacob Michael Merrill; daughters, Elizabeth Eden Merrill and Holly Michelle Webb; grandchildren, Roland Spencer Merrill, Lacey Mangin, and Aaron Mangin; great-grandchildren, Kara, Jadin, Gavin, Angelina.

Private Service.
