Phoebe possessed an appealing smile that made you feel her happiness. She enjoyed singing with her family and she loved to play bones as a younger child. Bingo was her favorite saying to yell. She looked forward to long strolls in the evening just being out in nature and drives along lake shores. Gatherings and cook out with her family and painting and coloring with the grandkids. She enjoyed making fry bread and many other traditional dishes. She will be dearly missed by our family and many friends.
Phoebe leaves to celebrate her memory: her younger brother, Bahwahsung Merrill, other family members, David “Maabin” Merrill, Brenda Moose, Carmen Bugg, Marlene Merrill and several great nieces, nephews and other loving family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Susan and John Merrill and many brothers and sisters.
