Erma was born on September 12, 1947 in Greeley, Colorado to Alfredo and Guadalupe (DeLaCruz) Rodriguez. The family relocated to Texas where she would obtain her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from West Texas A&M University. On March 28, 1970, she married the love of her life Miguel Perez III. Together they shared 49 years of marriage while raising a wonderful family. Erma worked as a Bakery and Tortilleria manager for Homeland Foods for many years. For the better part of 30 years, she was a Bingo Operator for Alamo Catholic Booster Club. In her spare time, she enjoyed bowling, music, and dancing. Her favorite pass time was her yearly trip to Las Vegas where she gambled the whole trip. She enjoyed reading, painting and cooking, but this all failed in comparison to her favorite hobby of spending time with her grandkids and family.

Those left to cherish Erma’s memories are her beloved Miguel, sons Miguel Perez IV and Brandon Perez, daughters Lei Anne Ramos, Andrea Bunney, and Noelle Salazar; brothers Alfredo, Anthony, and Eddie Rodriguez, and sisters Anna Jordan and Dorothy Jones.

I love you so much and I miss you! You are the strongest woman I have ever known!
You are the reason for who I have become today! You taught me how to cook, the importance of family and friends, & brought out my creative side! I know you are in heaven and you are probably looking more beautiful than ever and you are with our loved ones who have passed on! I am so glad that you are not hurting anymore Mom! It hurt me so bad to see you in this condition! Mom you will always be in my heart and if I just become half the woman you were than I will be very happy with my life...
Love you forever,
Andrea 💕

When I was younger, I was getting into art and fashion. My grandma Erma took time to teach me calligraphy, how to paint, how to sew, showed me what colors and patterns to mix together and just so many things. It’s the times like those I will cherish forever. I spent a lot of time with my beloved grandma yet, it still wasn’t enough...
