The Sister Wives Star Lost Many Family Members Over The Years

Meri’s sister isn’t her only close family member to pass away. Her father died years ago, but Sister Wives fans likely remember that her mother Bonnie passed away in the middle of the pandemic.

Meri’s brother Adam, who is also Janelle Brown’s first husband, also passed away from cancer within the past year.

“About 5 weeks ago I got a text from my brother saying he had made the decision to not continue his chemo treatment, due to the rapid progression of his cancer & deterioration of his body. Yesterday, Oct 5, 2023, just 2 months short of his 55th birthday, we lost him,” Meri shared online last fall. “After his passing, I would be the one remaining from the original four. We lost Teresa, our sister just younger than me, to cancer in 2006. We lost our oldest brother Marc to heart issues in 2015. Now Adam to another type of cancer.”
