Erma Louise (Purdy) Wilson

March 29, 1941 ~ April 23, 2022 (age 81)


Erma L. (Purdy) Wilson, age 81, of Mt. Lebanon, formerly of Clinton, PA, passed on Saturday evening April 23, 2022, at St. Clair Hospital.  A daughter of the late Wayne and Evelyn Purdy; beloved wife of the late Ronald H. Wilson who passed on January 12, 2005; cherished mother of Rev. Dr. Cindy (and the late Larry) McClung, Linda (and the late Dave) Wade, and Randall (Michelle) Wilson; adored grandmother of Dr. Timothy McClung, Nathan McClung, Amanda Wade, Kayla Wade, Rachel Wilson, Emma (Mark) Wilson-Polcha, Abigale Wilson, and Noah Wilson; and her church family at Clinton U.P. Church and Mt. Lebanon Christian Church.

Erma loved her family above all.  She also loved her church where she served as organist for several years, served on several church committees including an elder on the session and treasurer, and taught Sunday school.  She was a member of Montour Valley Grange, Order of Eastern Star, and Amaranth.  Erma loved baking cakes and cookies.

Erma was kind, sweet, soft-spoken, and never spoke ill of anyone.

Rest in Peace, Erma.
