Sister Wives celeb Meri Brown doesn’t know what her future looks like after the sudden and unexpected death of her mom, Bonnie Ahlstrom, 76. Meri’s mom is probably the most well-known of Kody Brown’s Sister Wives’ mothers-in-law on this TLC series.
Sister Wives: Meri Brown Mourns the Death Of Her Mom
The Sister Wives audience got to meet all the moms of Kody’s wives several Sister Wives seasons ago. Meri’s mom Bonnie was with Janelle, Christine, and Robyn’s mothers as they went shopping with Kody Brown.
From there, Bonnie Ahlstrom showed up on the Sister Wives series periodically. When Meri purchased Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, her mom became the innkeeper there. She made the inn her home and Meri got to spend many days with her mother at the establishment.
Meri Brown announced her mom’s passing by describing how much this affects her own future. She can’t see what life will look like as she attempts to go on without grandmother and mother Bonnie in her life.
Bonnie Ahlstrom Second Mother To Die Recently
At the end of last year, Janelle Brown’s mom passed away. Sheryl Lee Brown was also 76 at the time she died. While Sheryl had been sick at the time, it was still a shock for her Sister Wives’ daughter, as she too loved her mom very much.
Meri Brown has only one child, Mariah Brown. She and the woman she’s engaged to, Audrey Kriss, spent several days with both Meri and Bonnie recently. When the pandemic started to get scary, Mariah and Audrey left Chicago to come back home and hunker down with Meri.
Around then photos surfaced of Mariah at Lizzie’s with her mom and grandmother. So it seems the three generations got to spend some quality days together over the last several months.
Sister Wives: Days Get Darker
While there is never a good time to lose a loved one, the death of Meri’s mother couldn’t happen at a worse time for the original matriarch of this plural marriage. Not only are her marriage problems the topic of public scrutiny today, but Kody doesn’t seem to help matters.
Meri recently shared that if she by chance got sick she doesn’t think the Sister Wives patriarch would help care for her. That recently came up around a COVID-19 virus discussion.
But Kody claims to cherish his four marriages. He also claims divorce is not an option for him, just his wives. Still, most married people would expect their spouse to be a caretaker when needed.
It seems that Meri Brown can’t count on Kody Brown for that piece of the marriage. There are also a few other areas that he doesn’t attend to anymore for the first lady to marry the leader of the family featured on a TLC series.
