  • Notes 
    • Erma grew up in Missouri, mostly raised by her grandmother. Was always sick as a child and entered hospital for Bronchiactus at age 12 1/2 - for 1 1/2 year confinement. Met James at hospital in later hospitalization, wrote love notes back and forth. After marriage to James in Kansas City Missouri, they lived there from 1946 to 1949. They then moved to Phoenix where they lived from 1949-1950 (6 months), until moving onto Los Angeles, where they lived for 6 months. From there Lee (assumed middle name) and James moved to Banning, California where they lived from 1950-1953. In 1953 they moved to Calimesa, CA where they lived for 6 months and adopted Karen and David, because they had been trying for 7 years to conceive children, but were unsuccessful. Afterwards, the family moved back to Banning, from 1954 to 1956 where James III was born in 1955. In 1956 the family moved to Rialto, California where they lived from 1956 to 1960, along with several foster children (at times up to 4 foster children and Karen, David and Jimmy). In June 1960, the family moved to Tucson, Arizona on doctors advise to help dry out the lungs of ErmaLea (new name format). Joan was born in 1960; Karen underwent a heart surgery for a hole in her heart, David underwent surgery in the groin area, Jimmy had a pin placed in a broken arm and James and ErmaLea were involved in a serious accident a mile from home, which broke her jaw and involved other injuries. Soon, the family would relocate to Phoenix in 1967 where James started his own Engineering firm. James and Erma eventually divorced in 1973 shortly after Jim & Lois were married. Erma then married Jack Linker a retired sheriffs deputy, who had an interesting career which included shootouts and assorted scuffles. Following the divorce to Jack, which marriage lasted just over a year, Erma married Ray (Johnnie Ray) and was married to him until she died. Erma passed away due to deterioration and complications to her heart and lungs after several weeks of hospitalization on the heels of repeated hospitalizations which finally took away the strong spirit of a very optimistic and caring woman.
