Merrick was born Marilyn Llewelling in Fort Worth, Texas. In 1940, she was one of thirteen women selected by the Motion Picture Publicists Association as a "Baby Star", a selection process which was meant to highlight the most promising new film stars.

Her first Barry film was Two Gun Sheriff, and her last was Fugutive from Senora. She later worked for Columbia Pictures, where she starred in films alongside Richard Dix, Chester Morris, and Warner Baxter.

Merrick retired from films in 1947, although she did appear in 1954's Escape from Terror starring and directed by Jackie Coogan. She was married and divorced twice. Her first marriage was to actor Conrad Nagel, and her second was to producer Robert Goelet, Jr. She had no children.

Merrick died on March 25, 2007, at her home in West Palm Beach, Florida.
