Sister Wives star Meri Brown leaves fans in tears as she shares heartbreaking post about beloved family member

SISTER Wives star Meri Brown has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late mother to commemorate her birthday.

The reality star took to Instagram on Thursday to post the message for her mother, Bonnie Ahlstrom, who passed away in March 2021.

Meri 52, shared a solo snap of her mother smiling while standing on the porch of her home.

She wrote sweet words in the caption, noting the occasion: “Happy Birthday Mom! The most amazing, loving, kind, giving, selfless, Christ-centered, person I had the pleasure of knowing in this lifetime.

“I miss talking to her, learning from her, and being inspired by her wisdom. Missing her today and always!”

The Sister Wives star concluded the post with multiple blue heart emojis.

Fans raced to the comments to lift Meri’s spirits on this difficult day, with one writing: “Best gift that you give the beloved memory of your wonderful mom is that you make her so proud every day! Just continue to be you!”

Another added: “Meri sending you love and hugs today. Happy Heavenly Birthday!”

And a third chimed in: “So hard to lose your Mom, no matter what age. Happy heavenly birthday to your mom and [insert red heart emojis] and [insert prayer hands emojis] sent to you.”


Meri announced the tragic news of her mother’s death in an Instagram post with a photo of the mother-daughter duo.

She wrote: “76 years and 17 days was not enough time for the world to feel the beautiful spirit of this beautiful woman.

“This woman whose life mission was to give, to love, to serve. This woman who only knew how to do for others.

“This woman who would drop everything for you. This woman who was strong, resilient, compassionate.

“This woman who was a safe place to land, no matter where, no matter when. This woman, this beautiful woman, my mom.”

The TV personality went on to tell her followers how Bonnie had passed away unexpectedly and “way too soon.”

Meri continued: “She left us suddenly, unexpected, and extremely way too soon and I literally don’t know how I’m going to do the rest of my life without her.

“Mom, I love you beyond the words I can express here, but I know you know that.

“You are loved, you are missed, and I know you are so happy celebrating on the other side with dad, hugging your daughter and son who left us too soon, reuniting with your parents, and getting to know your dad.

“Love them all, hug them all, and be happy. Or rather, just continue filling that space around you with the light that you always do. I love you Mom!”

Days later, The U.S. Sun exclusively obtained photos from the funeral with Meri’s ex-husband, Kody, 54, and her former sister wives, Christine, 50, Janelle, 53, and Robyn, 44, in attendance.


Meri was Kody’s first wife, whom he wed in 1990.

He later divorced Meri and married his fourth wife, Robyn, so he could legally adopt her three children.

The pair remained spiritually married, but on January 10, 2023, Meri revealed she and Kody had parted ways.

She wrote in an Instagram post: “In light of a recent unapproved press release, we feel compelled to share our own truth, in our own way, and in our own timing.

“After more than a decade of working on our relationship in our own unique ways, we have made the decision to permanently terminate our marriage relationship.”


Meri has since been posting motivational messages as well as her weight loss progress on her platforms.

Last month, the TLC star was suspected of revealing her new love interest in a since-deleted post about a female friend, though Meri didn’t comment on the speculation.

Before Meri announced she ended her marriage with Kody, Christine and Janelle had already left the Brown patriarch.

Despite the family divide, Sister Wives is still moving forward with Season 18, though The U.S. Sun exclusively learned last month that Meri would “hardly make any appearances.”
