Erma retired from Post House Gift Shop after many years working at Hedstrom.  She was one of the first employees Hedstrom hired when they built their plant in Bedford.  She enjoyed being on the Hedstrom bowling team.  When her girls were young, Erma and Sam owned horses and enjoyed trail riding in Bedford County, especially Martin Hill.

Erma enjoyed growing houseplants and flowers in her many flowerbeds.  Roses, zinnias, and petunias were among her favorites.  She got her love for growing plants from her Daddy who she dearly loved.  Another source of pleasure was painting ceramics.  Every Friday, she and her sister Maxine would paint a variety of holiday ceramic decorations to display in their homes. 

Erma was a great cook and baker.  She enjoyed making large meals for her family and topping them off with homemade desserts. She kept the cleanest home, scrubbing walls every spring and polishing hardwood floors. Erma was a member of the Everett Church of the Brethren.
