MARION: E. Erlene Hamrick, age 91, of Marion, Ohio, passed away July 7, 2013 at the Marion Manor Nursing Home.
She was born in Harmony, West Virginia on January 8, 1922 to the late Joseph H. and Myrtle (Riley) Shouldis. She remained a West Virginia resident until 2007 when she moved to Marion, Ohio to be near her sister, Faye Cook Hamrick, who survives, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Erlene was preceded in death by her husband, T. Ralph Hamrick, whom she married on July 3, 1939.
Erlene served as Post Mistress at the Gandeeville, West Virginia post office in her early adult years and enjoyed being a homemaker. She will be remembered as an expert quilter. The superb artistry of her quilts earned her many awards and honors. When she wasn't quilting, you could usually find her at a yard sale, which was also a passion she enjoyed.
Her family would like to extend a heartfelt " thank you " to all of the staff and the special individuals at the Marion Manor Nursing Home for their tender loving care of Erlene.
There will be no service or visitation. The Boyd-Born Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. If anyone wants to make a contribution to honor the memory of Erlene, that can be done to the Marion General Hospital Hospice.
