Obituary for Merri Carol Atkinson

On the morning of Sunday, December 3rd, Merri Carol Atkinson passed away at the age of 60.

Merri was born to Sherry Atkinson on December 25th, 1962. In her 60 years of life, Merri touched the lives of many. She was strong, kind, and fun-loving. Merri commanded any room with her bright smile and contagious laughter. She loved spending her weekends at the lake with her beloved boyfriend, Allen, and cheering on the Cats with her friends and family.

Merri will rejoice in heaven with her mother, Sherry Atkinson, and her dog, Snickers. She will survive in the hearts of Allen Crowe (Partner), Joe Atkinson (Brother), Lisa Atkinson (Sister-in-law), Lauri Contreras (Aunt), Gary Contreras (Uncle), Rachel (Dom) Atkinson Morley (Niece), and Alex Wilson (Nephew).

To honor Merri’s wishes, the family will be hosting a celebration of life on December 19th at St. Matthews Community Center at 310 Ten Pin Lane from 4:30pm -7:30pm. We request that in lieu of flowers, any contributions are made in the form of donations to the Kentucky Humane Society in Merri’s name.
