Erma passed away peacefully on March 20, 2008 at the age of 86 in Mission, B.C. She was predeceased by her parents John and Evelyna Campbell, her husband Duane (Bud), brothers Frank and Bill Campbell, son Michael Hards, and daughter Joan Manke. She will be sadly missed by her survivors; son Bill (Linda) Hards of Penticton, Carol Penner of Abbotsford, son Rick (Debbie) Hards of Prince George, daughter Linda (Dean) Monds of Abbotsford, daughter Diane (Alan) Jansen of Yarrow, and son Keith Hards of Mission, as well as her 22 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.
Erma enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, as well as long drives around the Mission area where she grew up. She loved playing cards, helping her children and grandchildren with their studies, reading books and watching the Shirley Temple movies. She spent her last few years in Mission E.C.U. enjoying the many activities and outings there.
We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and support staff at Mission E.C.U. for her comfort and care during her extended stay. She will always be remembered for pouring her heart and soul into her family. Her very giving, loving, and generous personality will be greatly missed. We will love you forever. Mom
