I knew Erla Amon. She was my mothers neighbor.When my stepfather died in 1998, she was very kind to my mother and gave so much of herself. I will miss Erla, she was a wonderful person.
I am so sorry to hear about Erla’s passing. I worked with Erla at Geauga’s ER. She was well know for the care she gave the patients as well as the “goodies” she brought with her to work. Erla will be in my prayers. Karen
Were sorry for your loss . Your Mom was a great friend to our mom. Bless you all.
I thought something was wrong when I didn’t hear anything at Christmas. Erla was a wonderful friend when I lived in Dutchland Woods. I had no family in Ohio and Erla was a Mom replacement to me and the twins. She will be missed by many who knew her. Her kindness and thoughtfulness was spread out to everyone she met.
My sympathy to Debby, Kathy, Steve & Mike and their spouses. I know you have many good memories.
I was so sorry to hear about Erla. My husband Bob & I attended church with her @ Royal Redeemer years ago. After we moved , we sort of lost touch. However , I will never forget how friendly she was to our family when we first joined the church, her enthusiam, her generous nature. We have truly lost a treasure. Our condolences to all of you.

We knew Erla from Royal Redeemer where she was such a hard worker and a good cook! Later she helped keep a circle of friends together who met monthly. We still sew and lunch together, and will miss Erla in the craft room at the retirement home! God bless all her dear family!
Our love and prayers for each of you,Debbie,Cathy/Jim,Steve/Diane and Mike/Becky.
I loved your Mom so much and always looked up to her. She loved each of you so much and bragged about each of you and her grandchildren every time we talked. The last picture I have of her is with all 9 of you grandchildren around her…she was so proud of that picture.
Larry has had surgery and I will not be able to attend the viewing or service, but want to express my deepest sympathy to each of you.
May God’s peace and comfort surround you during the days ahead.
My condolences to you and your family.
We were so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful woman and we were blessed to have her as a friend. Since we will be in Florida we are sorry we can’t make the visitation or service. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss her very much. Glad I got to spend time with her before we left for Florida.

It is at times like this that I wish we lived closer.
Dear Cathy,Steve,and Mike, we send our sympathy to each of you. Your Mom was so special to us. She was like a sister to me. We so enjoyed her visits with us. We laughed from the time she got here until she left. I will miss her as I know you will. God Bless you all.
