Anna Marie Merrill Obituary
November 27, 1954 - January 8, 2017 Anna Marie Merrill passed away at the age of 62 after a hard fought battle with liver cancer. Devoted mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, her free flowing spirit, unparalleled creativity and unique sense of style will be remembered by all who knew her. Born at Queen of Angels in Los Angeles, Anna attended Marlborough School and graduated from UCLA with a degree in Design. She went on to work for McCann Erickson advertising agency before opening her own firm. A longtime resident of North Hollywood, she was deeply involved in the NoHo Arts District revitalization, designing the harlequin banners that decorated local streets for many years, and creating and publishing a weekly paper, NoHo>LA (later Metro LA), from 1998 until 2006, after which she embarked on a new career as an LAUSD teacher. Anna was a mentor to many young writers, artists and photographers. She is survived by her son, brother Kevin (Dominique), nephew Kelsey Merrill and many cousins and relatives. A memorial service will be held at 12pm, February 18, 2017, in the Old North Church, Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
