Erma L. Carpenter

Erma L. Carpenter, 96, St. Joseph, Missouri, passed away Thursday, March 8, 2018.
She was born September 14, 1921 in Lykens County, Ohio to Irvin and Hannah (Loyer) Briegel.
Erma married Alfred Thomas Carpenter November 14, 1946; he preceded her in death.
She was an active member at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Erma was very involved with the woman’s group at the church and would cook anytime she was asked. She was a longtime participant in the sewing group; she would never miss a meeting. Erma did seamstress work out of her home; making wedding dresses or just sewing on a button, she would do it all. Erma visited the shut-ins every 5th Saturday and worked at the food kitchen.
She enjoyed planting flowers in the spring but left the gardening to her husband.
She was also preceded in death by her parents.
Survivors include daughter, Linda Johnson (John); son, William T. Carpenter; grandchildren; Jodi Ramold, Janie Wilkinson, Michael T. Carpenter, Ryan Schuh; great grandchildren, Jada Leigh Johnson, Gabriel Lamont Fields, Carter Ramold, Ally Schuh, Gabriela C’deBaca; nieces, nephew and extended family.
