Erma Jean Mitchell

ermaMitchell

November 1, 1937 – December 1, 2014

Erma Jean Burton was born November 1, 1937 in Fayetteville, Texas to the union of Zelmo and Ellen Burton. She is one of six children; one of whom preceded her in death. Erma Jean, as I called her, attended Phyllis Wheatly High School in San Antonio, and graduated from St. Phillips College with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts in 1957. Erma Jean has five beautiful children; Theresa, Alvin, Chris, Mark and Myron. Throughout her life, Erma Jean worked relentlessly to guide and provide the very best for her children, and to be supporting and loving to family and friends.

From the beginning of her employment career, Erma chose the medical field. She worked at Mercy Hospital, University Hospital, Scripps, and ultimately at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, where she worked for more than 35 years. At Kaiser, she served as Supervisor in the departments of Urology, General Surgery, and Ophthalmology. Prior to her retirement, she served as a Member Representative in the department of Membership Services.

Erma Jean loved to shop and was always in the latest fashion. On any given day, you could find her “sharp as a tack”, from “head to toe”, including matching shoes and handbag. My sister, Theresa, as we all know, has always followed suit. My mother’s favorite color is purple. She collected ceramic turtles, as they were good luck. She loved having company, and enjoyed playing cards, and scrabble. She also really loved to travel. She visited Alaska, Mexico, Germany and went to Texas on several occasions. Her last and most favorite trip was to Hawaii, which she throughly enjoyed.

Erma Jean also loved to cook and bake. I personally loved her German Chocolate cake. My brother, Alvin enjoyed everything, plus seconds, Mark, loved her peach cobbler, Myron said his favorite was her pot roast, potatoes, and carrots, and Theresa’s favorite was her dressing. All would agree that she fed us with food that today warms our souls.
Erma is remembered by her children as being a kind and most loving mother. No matter what was going on with her, she always placed her children as a priority in her life. She always considered others before herself. As a woman of God, she taught her children to love one another and to treat others as they themselves would want to be treated.
Through she will be greatly missed by all, it gives us stability, comfort and joy to know that she is with our heavenly father.

Erma Jean Burton Mitchell is survived by two brothers, Roosevelt Burton Sr. and Cardell Burton; and two sisters, Shirley White and Virginia Fuller, all from San Antonio Texas; her long time friends, Ardith Lokey and William Powell; her five children, Theresa, Alvin, Chris, Mark and Myron, a host of grand children, one great grand son, nieces, nephews, play-daughters, other relatives and many church friends.
