Thursday, July 25, 2019 N/Warren Town and County News Page Three OBITUARY KATHLEEN ERICKSON Kathleen Erickson, the mother of Michele Miller of Norwalk, passed away peacefully on Wed- nesday, July 10th, 2019 at Fountain West. Graveside services will be held Thursday, July 25th at 8:00 a.m. at the Cambridge Cemetery in Cambridge. Kathleen Alderman Erickson was born August 17th, 1927 in Collins, Iowa, the only child of Lester and Leora (Alderman) Hanson. Kathleen's father was a farmer and her mother cared for the hired hands, cooked and cared for the house. After she graduated from high school, she began working at the Story County Courthouse as a secretary. One evening, Kathleen and a friend were attending a dance, and she met her future husband, Howard Erickson. After they married, they moved to her grandparents' farm just outside of Nevada. In 1953 Howard was drafted to service and served during the Korean War. Kathleen was pregnant with their daughter, Michele, when he left. While Howard was gone, Kathleen moved in with her parents. Approximately 3 years later Howard safely returned home to his wife and new daughter, and the couple returned to farming on Howard's family farm just outside Cambridge where they farmed for the next 10 years. During that time, Kathleen taught piano, delivered eggs and directed the choir at Nazareth Lutheran Church in Cambridge for 30 years. Howard's parents had an insurance company where Kathleen would often help out. In 1976, Howard and Kathleen moved into Cambridge. Howard passed away in 2005, and Kathleen stayed in their home until she turned 90, when she moved to Fountain West. She enjoyed reading her Bible, doing daily devotions and visiting with her family. Kathleen will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Michele (Mark) Miller of Norwalk, grand- daughters Carrie Mul- ford of West Des Moines and Katie Mulford (Jason Bailey) of Norwalk; and her great-grandchildren, Abbie, Noah, Addy, and Teegan. O'Leary Funeral & Cremation services was entrusted to care for Kathleen and her family. To leave an online condolence for the family, please visit www.oleary funerals.com.
