Merline passed away peacefully at the University of New Mexico, a month after a traffic accident left her working to get back on her feet.
She was the best mother, a loving wife, super grandmother, and a very special friend to many. We all loved her so very much. She is survived by daughters, Jennifer Meyer, Ann Parnigoni, and Kelly Boulware; son, Thomas Kempf; 11 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
