Erma Weese

Erma L. Weese, 73, of Waterport, died May 16, 2019 in Rochester General Hospital following a brief illness, surrounded by her loving family. She was born May 10, 1946 in Indore, W.Va. to Omer and Edna (White) Brown and lived in this area since 1969.

Erma was a terrific cook who was famous for her biscuits. She enjoyed crocheting, crossword puzzles, and cooking for people whenever they stopped by the house. She also enjoyed watching “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune,” as well as collecting elephant figurines, but her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, especially watching them play baseball and football.

Mrs. Weese was predeceased by her son, Robert Wayne Fugate; her granddaughters, Sarah Laubacher and Tiara Fugate; and her brothers, Roger, Rick and Darryl Brown.

She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Dencil; her children, Joyce Allport of Barre, Omer (Tammy Coville) Fugate of Point Breeze, Timmy Fugate of Albion, Ray (Sherri) Weese of Albion, and Betsy (Mike) Bennett of Lyndonville; her brothers, James (Dianna) Brown of Ohio and Michael (Barbara) Brown of Medina; her sisters, Doris (Rich Jones) DeBoard of Waterport and Libby Cochran of West Virginia; 13 grandchildren, Billy and Jessica Allport, Tiffany, Omer Lee and Rebecca Fugate, Christina Treadway, Daniel and Corey Slaughter, Chaz Weese, Travis and Shayne Atwell; 15 great-grandchildren; as well as several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends on Fri., May 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc., 21 West Ave., Albion, where a “Time to Share Memories” will be held at 8 p.m. following visitation. Interment will take place privately at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to American Heart Association, 5488 Sheridan Drive #300, Williamsville NY 14221; or to Arthritis Foundation, 1355 Peachtree St. NE Suite 600, Atlanta GA 30309.
