Obituary

Mary Elizabeth Erickson (Mary Beth) was born April 30, 1919 on a farm near Logan, Kansas. She was the youngest of six children born to Carrie (Albright) and Daniel O'Connell, whose families were homesteaders in the area. Her family moved to Boulder, Colorado when she was 7 and she attended school there, including classes at the University of Colorado.

She married Woodrow Erickson on October 25, 1942. Shortly after, Woody was sent to the Naval Air Station at Lakehurst, New Jersey, where he served during WWII. She was able to join him there for awhile during his service. After the war they returned to Colorado. They lived in the Denver area and Mary Beth stayed home to raise their four children. Later she was employed for several years at the Denver Dry Goods Company.

She is survived by her children Mary Ellen Reither and Daniel Erickson, grandchildren Justin and Logan Huffman, Marcie Rood, Amanda Geidel, Eric Reither and Tracy Church and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Woodrow; children Wayne Erickson and Lois Huffman; parents and siblings.
