Mom is lovingly remembered by her three children, Gary (Wanda) of Baie Verte, NB, Karen Teichert of Arizona, and Anne Caines (Ron) of Riverview, NB. She was a devoted grandmother to James, Jennifer, Sarah (Colin), Lauren (Hanz), Alex, Carrie, and Steven, and to her dear great grandchildren, Rebecca, Guy, Rachel, Dewey, and Asher. Also survived by her step grandchildren Melissa (Ryan) and Brent (Munjung) and step great grandchildren Oren, Adler, and William, and by sisters- in-law, Lucille Colpitts and Louise Blue.
In addition to her parents, Erma was predeceased by her husband of over 55 years, James (2003), her infant grandson Matthew Caines, her sister Edna Wolverton (Carl), and her brother Archie Colpitts.
Erma retired from the Dept of Supply and Services, #5 Depot. She was a long time member of Wesley Memorial United Church and a Life Member of the United Church Women, where she made many lasting friendships.
Mom loved to host her family and friends and was always up for a game of 45’s. A gifted quilter, she made many beautiful quilts for her family.
The family would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to Susan Dixson, Leslie Hickey, and all the staff (Past and Present) of Serenacare for the extraordinary care Mom received.
A family burial will take place at Colpitts Settlement Cemetery at a later date.
