  1. Erma Morring was the rock of our family. She always asked what she could do for others, never asking for a thing for herself. She was a tireless, hard working, loving, kind, selfless woman, who loved her family with a passion. She was a wonderful Sister, Wife, Mother, Mother-in-law, and Grandmother, to all.
    She was here, and then gone, like the summer wind.
    She will be sorely missed, and has left a hole in our hearts, There will never be anyone that can take her place. Our only consolation is the fact that there was never a more God loving person, than she was. She is in paradise with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Reunited with the love of her life, Solon Howard Morring, we will love her forever.
    God Bless and keep you Mother, Grandmother.
