Erin worked for the State of Minnesota as a Human Service Technician for 7 years. She also sold Gold Canyon candles and Thirty-one bags. No matter what job Erin decided to dive into, she did it with vigor and enthusiasm and she excelled at whatever undertaking she was working on at the time. Erin loved to make crafts, especially children's wear and hair bows, and she had an eye for a bargain and loved to peruse the next best deal. Erin will be remembered for her generous heart, her love of family, and the way she could light up any room with her smile and infectious laughter. There were so many things that Erin loved to do such as strawberry picking, vacations, holidays, parades, parks, beaches, walks, reading, movies, shopping, casinos, bingo, garage sales, BBQ's, and crab leg buffets. She enjoyed taking pictures of family growing up and especially Florida vacations.
