Kathryn Verda Merrill Obituary


Kay passed away peacefully at the Fountains on February 1, 2015. For more than a decade she has been surrounded by caring and helpful staff at The Courtyard and Fountains in Yuba City. These were some of the happiest years of her life. Her health gradually left her, but her awareness remained with her until the last day of life.

She was born to Owen Eugene Merrill and Hazel Irene Sherbondy. Kay was educated in Benson, Nebraska and moved to California in 1943. In 1945 she married her husband of 42 years: Louis Albert Pozzi. She was a homemaker, golfer, seamstress, Girl Scout Leader, award winning cook, bookkeeper, and bowler.

She was preceded in death by her brothers and sisters, Dolores Reeves of Carmichael, CA, Evelyn Shea, Helen Schneckenberger, Doris Hansen, Mary Lou Merrill, Rollin Merrill and Harold Merrill all of Omaha, NE, and Dean Merrill of Augusta, KS.

Kay is survived by two daughters, Linda Wiitala (Russ) and Lora Inglerock; three grandchildren, Daniel Inglerock (Melissa), Kim Benton (Bruce) and Ryan Allshouse (Krysti) and three great-grandchildren.

Services will be conducted at Ullrey Memorial Chapel on Saturday, March 28th, at 10:30am. Interment will be at the Merrill family plot in Nebraska.
