Recently learned of Aunt Erma's passing from cousin Marty & also shared this obituary with my 89-year-old mom (Delores), who sends her condolences as well.

I agree with Andrea's shared memory, plus family gatherings at your house in Beech Grove when we were kids; watching the older generation play euchre (before we learned how), watching our dads play baseball, pitch horseshoes, etc. Lots of fun & laughter!

Grateful for our times together over the years, knowing those who've passed before us are celebrating in heaven & watching over us!

So sorry to hear of your Mother/Grandmother's passing. Tracey and I just found out on Mother's Day.

Fond memories of large meals at family get togethers at Grandma and Grandpa Riddles, and sitting around laughing and playing euchre after dinner

Love Andrea Wertz and Family
