Obituary for Vera M. Erickson

Vera M. Erickson, age 93, of Tomahawk, WI, passed away on Monday, April 8, 2019, at Country Terrace Assisted Living.  Vera was born in Tomahawk on May 15, 1925, to the late Evan and Minnie (Morgenroth) Hoff, Sr.  She was married to Philip Erickson on May 22, 1948; he passed away in 2001. 

Vera was a 1943 graduate of Tomahawk High School.  After graduation, she moved to Merrill, WI, where she lived until the passing of her husband.  In 2003, she moved back to Tomahawk.  Vera was a stay-at-home mom and took care of children.  She always had a house full of kids.  Wherever she lived, even in her later years, children always found their way to Vera’s.  She enjoyed flowers, fishing, bird watching, reading, crossword puzzles, and knitting.  In the summer, she loved going to rummage sales.  Vera loved her trailer on the Somo River and spending time with her grandsons, “the boys”,  Derik and Christopher.
