In January of 1956, Erika and Walter moved their family to the United States and settled in St. Joseph, MI.

She was also an active member in The Benton harbor chapter of DANK. In 1974 Erika and Walter moved to Mishawaka, IN to the house they built and loved. Erika became involved in the local garden club and enjoyed her plants and gardening. She had an artistic touch to everything she tried.
Erika will be missed by many, but is back together with Walter, her husband of 73 years. The family would like to thank The Center for Hospice Care, with a special thanks to Nicole and Michele for the extraordinary care they gave Erika.
