Mert was born February 6, 1935 in Peoria to Enid Parker and Bessie Huckins.

Mert loved the many friends she had. She loved throwing parties for her Red Hat Ladies. Mert always looked forward to her daily phone call from her "Cousin Jean." She also enjoyed meeting up with her High School classmates and eating at Grecian Gardens with them while sharing stories and happenings. Mert had many close friends that she considered her family and loved spending time with.

Most recently, Mert loved her family at St. Joseph's Home in Lacon. She called many of them her family, and many called her "Aunt Mert." She enjoyed the many visits from her great nephew, Justin, whom she enjoyed getting to know and giving advice to. Mert supported many causes over the years, such as animal rescue organizations, Lakota Indian children, saving the wolves, St. Jude's, veterans, and many more. She was just a kind and caring person who loved all.
