Erma was born on February 9, 1933, in Wahoo, NE, to Carl and Vada (Hageman) Ulander. She graduated high school from Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, MN, and was married soon after to the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Emerson Bliss, on June 16, 1951.
Erma worked as a private secretary for over 30 years at a chemical company in Denver, CO. Erma and Bob shared a great love of adventure and travel and were blessed to have visited all 50 states and all seven continents together. Several of those trips were shared with their children and grandchildren. Their faith and friendships formed at church were always a significant part of their lives throughout their marriage.
Erma leaves behind her dear husband of 71 years, Robert (Bob); their children, Linda (Mark) Snyder; Darlene (Rick) Rieder; and Karna (Jeff) Binkley; seven grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
Erma was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Vern Ulander; grandson, Steven Snyder; and great-granddaughter, Joella Conrad.
