Obituary of Bethany Lynn (Oglesbee) Merrill

Bethany Lynn (Oglesbee) Merrill was born February 15, 1987, in Savannah, Georgia, and went to be with her Lord her Savior on December 3, 2022.

 Bethany was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, and friend.  Bethany was the most loving and compassionate person whose smile could light up your soul.

She loved being with family and gathering around the table to play cards and share family tales.  She was always listening and learning as much as she could about where she came from as a person.  She loved being outdoors and was always willing to go white water rafting or enjoy the afternoon fishing.

Most of all, she loved and adored her children, and if you were ever lucky enough to see her gaze into her children’s faces, the pure joy you saw was blinding.  Her heart and soul lives on with those babies. Bethany wanted nothing more than for them to have a full and amazing life.  She was a proud volunteer at Shady Hill Elementary School so she could experience more of her children’s life.

Bethany was preceded in death by her grandfather Bruce Oglesbee. She is survived by her loving husband Chris, her daughter Audrey, her son Harrison, her father David Oglesbee, her mother Linda Oglesbee, her stepmother Patricia Oglesbee, her brother Lance Oglesbee her grandmother Darlene Oglesbee and grandfather Larry Langschwager.

Bethany’s celebration of life ceremony is set for Hiers-Baxley Funeral Home on Friday, December 9, at 11 AM.  Friends and family are invited to attend. The address is 910 SE Silver Springs BLVD, Ocala, Florida.
