A funeral service for Margarita Lynn Erb, 12, was held at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 13 at the Wheatland Bible Church in Wheatland with Pastor Jason Iacovetto officiating. Interment was held in the Wheatland Cemetery.
Margarita Erb passed away Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019 at her home near Glendo.
Marrgarita Lynn Erb was born Feb. 21, 2007, in Ukraine, beloved by the Lord but forsaken by society. In 2015, she was introduced to love by her adoptive family and began to truly experience life.
Through much work, her devoted family nurtured her to better health. She loved spending time in her familiar room, listening to music and laughing. She had so much joy! She enjoyed her siblings’ voices and loved them all so very much. Just their presence made her laugh! Among the many gifts she gave us was an ability to be content in our circumstances and to slow down and enjoy simple things.
She entered into Jesus’ presence on Dec. 7. We cling to the promise from Scripture: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
We are grateful for our time with her and have been so blessed to be her parents.
Margarita is survived by her parents, Almanzo and Heather Erb; and her siblings, Aida, aged 14, Lane, aged 13, Anna, aged 11, Grady, aged 10, and Wade, aged 8.
Serving as pallbearers will be John Watson, Tom Watson, Wade Stoll, and Danny Fredericks.
A memorial to the Margarita Lynn Erb Memorial Fund, in care of Platte Valley Bank PO Box 337, Wheatland, WY 82201 would be appreciated by the family.
The Gorman Funeral Homes – Platte Chapel of Wheatland are in charge of the arrangements.
