CONRAD – Erma Deanne, 85, of Charleston, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Wednesday November 25, 2020, in Ryan Hall, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.
Born in Charleston, Erma was a daughter of the late Elisha Hastings and Lillian (Firth) Parnell.
In Erma’s younger years, she was a member of the Hollow Log Rifle and Pistol Club, where she earned the Dominion Marksmanship. Erma was an active member of the Anglican Church Guild and also taught Sunday School. A devoted homemaker raising nine children, she still found time to enjoy walking, going to the beach, dancing, music, flowers, feeding the birds and bowling. If Erma could, she would adopt every baby she came upon and was most happy when surrounded by her family.
