Merko Family, You Are In Our Thoughts & Prayers
Submitted By Wendy Johnstone on Thursday, September 20, 2018
It is with great sadness that we notify our Minor Ball community that we have lost a member of our Spartan family.

Julie Merko, wife of Atom Boys coach Mike Merko, and mother to an amazing kid who has been a Spartan since T-Ball passed away suddenly yesterday in her home. Mike asked that the Minor Ball Community be made aware of this tragedy.

I personally watched many games sitting beside Julie as we cheered our boys on. She was a wonderful mother, wife and friend. Her spirit was always kind and positive. She will be missed in a way that words cannot begin to express. 

In the coming days, St. George Minor Ball will determine the best way for us to show our support. Mike and Nicholas - your Spartan teammates stand with you - we are here for you always.
