She was such a beautiful person. I worked with her husband Jim and also her sister Willie at Armstrong. I also lived with them during the winter months. They were both a lovely couple. May she Rest In Peace.

So sad for your loss. I loved Erna. I worked with her at Dr. Gill's. I am his daughter. I took my children to visit Erna and Willie every Halloween and Christmas, and Easter until they grew up. I fondly remember the "Girls" from the office and up to and including last year we celebrated with a Christmas dinner out, which Erna organized. She was always welcoming, friendly, and generous. We will miss her.
