"Sister Wives" star Meri Brown has taken to social media with a heartfelt tribute in honor of her late mom, Bonnie Ahlstrom, who recently passed on at the age of 76.

TV star Meri Brown's recent Instagram post was a soulful one dedicated to the life her late mom, Bonnie Ahlstrom, lived. Meri poured out her heart in a lengthy caption.

The "Sister Wives" star shared a photo of her and the matriarch posing with big smiles. However, her soul-stirring feeling was well communicated in her caption.

Meri, 50, wrote that the matriarch's 76 years on earth and an extra 17 days were not enough for their beautiful relationship. The star described her mom as a selfless person, writing in her post:

"This woman whose life mission was to give, to love, to share. This woman who only knows how to do for others. This woman who would drop everything for you…"


Meri went on describing her beloved mother as a "safe place to land." She wrote that Ahlstrom was resilient, strong, and compassionate. The reality star described the 76-year-old's death as sudden and unexpected.

Meri has made it known that she was not going to give up on her marriage to fellow star Kody Brown.


The star bade her mom farewell, bearing in mind that she was in a better place. Meri concluded her post by penning her unending love for the matriarch and including three blue heart emojis. 

A few weeks before Ahlstrom's death, Meri heartily celebrated her on social media dedicating sweet messages to her for International Women's Day, Women's History Month, and her birthday.


As far as "Sister Wives" is concerned, Meri has made it known that she was not going to give up on her marriage to fellow star Kody Brown. Although she recently mentioned that their relationship was dead, it seems she would not quit.

The star is holding on to the vow she and Kody made to each other in their 1990 wedding. Since the quarantine started, Kody moved all four of his wives to Flagstaff, Arizona, but his rapport with Meri has been strained. 


While the plural family settled in Flagstaff, Kody has been rotating visits among the other three sister wives. However, it seems the routine has him worried for his safety, something he confirmed in a March 14 episode.

The star revealed that he was worried about navigating amid his wives' abodes, referring to himself as a dangerous person, being that his frequent movement could lead to an outbreak of COVID-19 within his household.
