Posted in Harmony Obituaries



Violet Erickson, age 88 of Harmony, Minn., died Wednesday evening, December 17, 2014 at the Harmony Healthcare Center in Harmony. Funeral services were held 11 am Saturday, December 20 at Greenfield Lutheran Church in Harmony, with burial following in Greenfield Cemetery. Friends called from 10 am until time of services at the church. Lindstrom Funeral Home assisted the family.

Violet was born on January 4, 1926 in Harmony, Minn., to Charles and Luella Arns. She was baptized at Greenfield Lutheran church on January 31, 1926 and confirmed at Greenfield Lutheran church on May 11, 1941. Violet attended grade school in Harmony and graduated from Harmony High School in 1943.

She was united in marriage to Roy Erickson on September 19, 1954. In 1962, they purchased the Ed Evinrud farm, where they farmed until 1991. Violet was a long-time employee of Harmony physician, Dr. Baird, and the Harmony Veterinary Clinic.

Violet was an active member of the community and a lifelong member of the Greenfield Lutheran Church. She and Roy enjoyed bowling, card club, and golf. Most of all, Violet cherished her family. She enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren participate in sports, choir, band, and dance.

In her last few months, what brought a smile to Violet’s face the most was visits from her family and friends, especially her great-grandchildren.

Violet is survived by her children: Michael (Linda) Erickson of Denver, Colo., Richard (Peggy) Erickson of Farmington, Minn., Dean (Lisa) Erickson of Preston, Minn., and Carol (Brian) Larson of Maplewood, Minn.; 11 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren (Violet was anxiously awaiting the arrival of her 11th great-grandchild in 2015); brother-in-law, Melvin (Lucy) Erickson of Chicago, Ill., sister-in-law, Frances Burmeister of Spring Valley, Minn., sister-in-law, Joyce (Hillman) Erickson of Harmony, Minn.; along with several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Lyle, LaVerne, Robert and Donna; and her loving husband, Roy.
