Madeleine Errickson

YORK Madeleine (Kammerman) Errickson, 92, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 9, 2012, at her home in York with family by her side. Born in Atlantic City, N.J., she graduated from Atlantic City High School, where she was a star basketball player. Teaching children to read was her passion and she was a private tutor all of her life, retiring as a member of the Home and Hospital Teachers in Prince Georges County, Md., where she lived with her family for 45 years. Madeleine traveled the world with her Air Force husband and family, calling Japan and England home for several years. Her love of travel continued throughout her life as she led groups from Andrews Air Force Base on trips to such places as China and Russia. She loved a good book. But there was really nothing she loved more than to go fishing in her beloved boat "Wild Blue", and to have the family over to feast on a fried fish dinner that she caught herself! Madeleine was predeceased by her husband, Lt. Col. Charles S. Errickson (ret), and her brothers, Arthur Kammerman, Roy Kammerman, and Leslie Kammerman. She is survived by her daughter, Barbara Errickson of Brigantine, N.J.; her son, David Errickson and his wife, Jill of Dallastown; her grandchildren, Simon Gras and his wife, Natalie of Arlington, Va., Sean Gros and his wife, Jenn of Absecon, N.J., Elizabeth Errickson of Dallastown, and Alexis Prego of Philadelphia; and a great-grandson, Charlie Gros. She is also survived by her sister, Peggy Coffin of Sarasota, Fla., and her stepson, Robert Errickson of Sellersville and his children and grandchildren; and by many loving and dearly loved nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are invited to attend Madeleine's Life Celebration and viewing on Tuesday, nov. 13, 2012, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon at St. Andrews By The Sea Lutheran Church at 936 Baltic Ave in Atlantic City. Funeral Service will follow. Interment will be at Atlantic City Cemetery, Pleasantville.
