After a six year battle with colon cancer, Meribeth Detweiler was called to the Lord at the age of 60 while surrounded by her immediate family. Meribeth is survived by her husband Karl and their children, Joel(Sarah), Todd and Jayna, her nieces Kathy Houret, Jayne Bower and Mindy Prow. and her “adoptive sister” Janet Kittler. She was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. She was preceded in death by her parents Paul and Evelyn Ellingsworth and her sister Jacque Bower. She graduated from West Vigo High School in Terre Haute and San Jose State University. She was brave to the end as she fought for her life, enduring numerous surgeries and chemo treatments with unbelievable strength and positive emotions. She loved to dance, loved to entertain, loved her children, her husband, her friends and especially her community. She served on the Pleasanton Human Services Commission and was a volunteer Barton Tutor at Valley View for many years. She also actively supported many local politicians and causes.
