Obituary of Dorothy Helen Erb

Peacefully, while at home and surrounded by her children, Mom left us on February 1, 2024, to be reunited with Dad, Kelly and faithful companion, Dusty.


She is survived by her sons Steve and Randy (Kathy), daughters Anne (Marcel) and Karen (Bruce); grandchildren Kelly (Nicole), Ryan (Kelsey), Teri-Lyne (Ashley), Chelsea (Matt), Angela (Luke), Mike, Chad, Tyler (Melissa), Ashley, and Bre-Anne (Dave); great-grandchildren Kennedy, Presley, Rhea, Bodhi, Hendricks, Munroe, Scottie, Masyn, Emerson, Aiden, Addison, Braxton, Finn, Ryder, Nevada, Maddon, Decklan, Griffin, Boston, Rylee, Remi, Oaklynn, baby Wrixon due in May; sisters Elenor and Roberta (Jim), brother Wayne (Peggy), and many nieces and nephews.


She was predeceased by her husband Gary, son Kelly, parents Steve and Margaret Plouffe, sister Blanche, brother Robert, niece Darla, nephew Jamie, in-laws Ted & Hazel Erb, Doug & Marilyn Erb, Murray Kelly, and nephew Tim Erb.


Dorothy was born and raised in Fort Garry. On November 30, 1957, she married Gary Erb, and together they resided and raised their children on the family farm in Oak Bluff.


She was the most loved mother and was truly the pillar of strength in the family. She will be remembered by those who knew her for her generosity and compassion. Her life revolved around loving and caring for her family.

As an active member of the Fort Garry Legion, Mom truly enjoyed her bingo, bowling, shuffleboard, cribbage, and the casino.


As per Mom’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service in her honour will be held at Oak Bluff Hall on March 8th, 2024, at 1:00 p.m.


An extra special thanks to Marnie, Bernice, Kim, Laurel and Dr. Woelk, as well as Southern Health Palliative Care and Home Care.


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Firefighters Burn Fund, Make-a-Wish, or Canadian Cancer Society.


Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma, you will live forever in our hearts!
