Meryl passed peacefully at Oshawa General Hospital after a brief illness.

Predeceased by sister Frances Bawden, husbands Norman Jones and Douglas Baker and children Morgwn Jones and Dilys Tyrrell (Jones).

Meryl will be deeply missed by partner Alex Jameson, son Rhys Jones, son-in-law Don Tyrrell, stepson Scott Baker (Heather), and grandchildren Cynthia Michalic (Tom), Andrew Tyrrell (Anita), John-Mark Jones, Emery Jones, Molly Jones, Clara Baker, Julia Baker, Elena Baker, Jarrod Fleming and Cameron Fleming and great grandchildren Morgan and Brooke Michalic.
