So sorry to hear this news, I remember sitting many days at her table drinking tea with her, super lady then, considering I was her kids age but she still spent time for me

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Erma. She was a wonderful, caring person who we became great friends with while she and mom (Ann Baker) shared a room together. She was always busy doing crafts and watching how-to videos on her iPad. Many of her creations ended up on the wall in her room or were donated to be used around the home to bring a little sunshine into the lives of the other residents. She was an independent and quick witted soul who loved to share funny videos she found online whenever we came to visit. Erma became an extended member of our family in a way and always kept us up to date on the various goings-on. We could always count on her to to keep us apprised if there was any concerns with mom's health, and whenever her own health issues flared up, we would also be concerned about her. I know that her faith was very important to her and have no doubt that right now she's kicking up her heels in heaven, free from pain and a body that was failing her.

Rest in peace, dear sweat lady. You will be sorely missed.
