Bonnie died in March 2021 at 76-years-old. Meri did not specify her cause of death at the time and only mentioned that it was "sudden."

"It's comforting to know she's in the arms of my dad once again, looking on from above, leading, guiding, and loving like they always have," she later reflected in a March 2022 Instagram post, referring to her late dad, Bill, who passed away in 2007. "So grateful for all the years I had with her."
