Obituary for Lila May Eriksen

Lila May (nee. Boldrey) Eriksen, formerly a resident of Jackson, passed away peacefully on November 16, 2015 at the age of 83.

Lila was born on May 5, 1932 in Norfolk, Virginia to Louis and Gregory Louise (nee. Walker) Boldrey. As a Navy family, Lila and her sister Leila were well traveled and lived in many places in the years before her father, Louis died serving his country. At age seven, Lila moved with her grandmother to Parma, Michigan where she graduated from high school. After school, Lila worked in a nursing home and as a cashier at Kroger until she met Carl Eriksen, and fell in love. The young couple married in 1953 and made their home in Jackson where they raised five children. She enjoyed watching University of Michigan sports, loved to make art and played several musical instruments, including the accordion, organ and piano. Lila’s strong christian faith and children were the central focus of her life. She was a loving wife, proud mother and grandmother who always regarded her family as her life’s greatest achievement.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Carl Eriksen; son, David and sister, Leila. She is survived by her sons, Rory (Julie) and Nathan (Kathryn); daughters, Sandra Golba and Margene (Casey) Blaker; grandchildren, Reid, Cristian and Hailey Eriksen, Shelby and Camille Golba, Elisha and Ethan Blaker and extended family members and friends.
