There is no service due to COVID-19. With cases rising again, she would not have wanted anyone to put themselves in jeopardy. Those wishing to honor her life can donate to Birds of Prey Foundation. She was in awe of those majestic birds.
Merry moved to Denver, Colorado when she was 5. She attended East High school and graduated from Metro State Collage with a bachelor’s in criminal justice. Merry worked at Rocky Mountain Bank Card System. Later, she went to work at Safeway as a cashier for many years.
Merry was an avid reader, lover of art, enjoyed crafts and especially making wreaths, listening to music and spending time with her family. She loved to talk to people including strangers and made a point to get someone to laugh or at least smile. She had thousands of photos saved on her phone to send when someone needed encouragement or a laugh.
Her passing leaves those who knew and loved her, heartache and sadness and she will be deeply missed. Merry is survived by her daughter Judith Wilson; grandchild Forrest Williams; sister Rhonda Bilek; one nephew, two nieces, other relatives and friends.
