Mrs. Erma (Hurdle) Eason, 94, of Warner Street, departed this life Monday, October 14, 2019, at Abbott Terrace Health Center. She was the widow of Lester Eason.

Mrs. Eason was born in Gatesville, North Carolina on April 4, 1925, a daughter to the late Jessie and Viola (Roscoe) Hurdle.

"Sister" as she was also known as, was educated in the Gatesville Public School System and graduated from T.S. Cooper High School in North Carolina. After graduation, she relocated to Waterbury and began working diligently at Uniroyal in Naugatuck. She then worked for Century Brass Company before her retirement. She was a longtime member of Zion Baptist Church and later on became a member of Long Hill Bible Church.Erma loved her family and took her role as the eldest daughter very seriously. She was the third of seven children and the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hurdle. "Sister" always took responsibility for organizing the family picnic. She always made potato salad and deviled eggs which were enjoyed by all. She and her sisters were always together while she drove her Jeep. They enjoyed lunches and shopping downtown regularly. Her home was immaculate and she and Lester made it a home to her mother and also welcomed many relatives to have a place to stay, until they were settled when they came to Waterbury. She loved the color red and anything that sparkled, whether jewelry or clothing. She will be missed by many.

She leaves to mourn her memories, many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends, her Goddaughter Robin Eason Ryan of Alabama; a step granddaughter Genene (Milton) McKnight of Hamden; a step grandson Kevin Harris Sr.; a step great granddaughter Kim Harris; a step great grandson Kevin Harris Jr.; a step great great granddaughter Da'Nayah Harris; and one brother in law Samuel Carter of Waterbury, CT.
