Lila B. Erickson-Shroyer

Devoted wife and mother left us to be with our father in Heaven on Dec. 16, 2013. She is in the company of her loving husband Robert (Nick) Shroyer and son Destrie and many other beloved family members now.

She was the most loving mother we could have been blessed with. We shall miss her gentle touch and the light that was in her eyes each time she laid eyes on us. She was considered a mom by many more than us — a testament to her love of family.

She fed many in her life. She was an excellent cook and always had an ear for those who needed her.

She left behind one brother Joseph (Virginia) Erickson of New Castle, CO, Dixie Green of Tucson, AZ, and Lillian (Glenn) Blocker of Tallahassee, FL. She left behind daughter, Carnell (Joseph) Trujillo of Phoenix, a son Robert (Carrie) Shroyer of Mack, CO, daughter Lorrie Raffensperger of Rifle, CO, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers share a home-cooked meal with someone today. You will be missed the remainder of our lives, mom, Graham Cracker and G.G.
