February 1,1939

June 20, 2016

With sad hearts we have to say goodbye to our Gma! She passed away peacefully with her family by her side. She was born in Sperling, BC and moved to Armstrong in 1979. She worked for CIBC for almost 40 years and retired at the age of 56 due to her health. Having endured four open-heart surgeries, she was a tough old bird. She loved to travel, garden, golf and play crib even up to the day before her passing. She lived with her daughter Candice (John) Amies for over 20 years and took great pleasure in helping to raise their children Alexandria (Travis) Yardley (Ginger baby due July 22) of High Prairie AB and Nicholas (Becca Barr) of Enderby. She also leaves behind two sons Michael and Kevin Erickson and families of Langley, BC, as well as 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Predeceased by brothers James and Frederick, Father of her children and ex husband Roy Erickson, as well as partner for 15 years Leonard Perry and close friend Gary MacPherson. Missing her will be her older sister Helen (Mag) Tattersall, her younger brother Douglas (Wanda) Tattersall and her sister in-law Liz Poor and dear friend Linda (Kerry) Penley. She had a great group of nieces and nephews that she spoke to often and remembered every birthday and significant event in their lives. The family would like to thank the Emergency/Trauma Dept. and staff of VJH as well as the awesome ICU crew! Love and miss you Mama! Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
