Shortly after Margie and Sam became citizens, tragedy struck. The LA Times report of September 14, 1940 details the tragic death of Jackie Bonar at the age of 14 on September 13th. Jack was buried in Beth Olam Cemetery now part of Hollywood Forever Memorial Park. Sam would die a year later on September 8, 1941, leaving Margie without a husband, and Merrill and Donald without a father. It would now fall to Merrill to become head of the household.
