Service Information

Char Erickson 

Service: Held at a later date

Cemetery:  Winchester


Char Erickson, age 86, of Grand Rapids, ​went to be with her Lord on Thursday, May 28, 2020, joining the love of her life, Roger. Char was a very giving person, always helping others and putting her family and friends first. Hospitality was one of her greatest gifts. She loved serving others which brought her so much happiness. Char would always say “I love every aspect of homemaking, especially cooking, because it brings so much joy to those around me.” She enjoyed getting out and going places, especially to restaurants with her family. A member of Ada Bible Church, she was a very special lady to everyone. Char was the heart and rock of her family. She was strong, gentle, generous, caring and forgiving. These gifts the Lord gave her shined and enriched everyone’s life. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Shelley Erickson and Scott Erickson; grandson, Ryan and Gina Erickson; and her nephews, Paul and Mary, Ron and Lori, Randy and Amber and their families. Due to health restrictions, there will be no services at this time. Interment will be in Winchester Cemetery.

So glad I had some time with her and admire the legacy she left in love of family. Her family reflects those great values she instilled...

Shelly, Scott, Ryan and Gina,
Words will never express how deeply sorry we are for your loss. Char was a wonderful woman and dear friend to us. May the knowledge that peace and joy are with her now and forever help you to heal.
Ron and Lynette
