Erin was born on October 28, 1981, in Ponca City, OK, and was the second born of four children. She was raised on the family farm east of Lamont and grew up driving tractors, riding 3-wheelers, showing sheep and hogs, attending church and youth group, and participating in 4-H, FFA, and choir. She was a tremendous cook, always making more than necessary, and was in charge of making the family’s traditional Christmas candy. She was also an avid gardener and canned jams and jellies every year. She enjoyed traveling the country. It was never a surprise when she and Piper would load up and take off to another state for a Girl Scout event, go to Branson or go somewhere new. Erin never met a stranger and kept in touch with everyone. She was the keeper of the family history. Her life centered around her daughter, Piper: taking her to dance class, leading her Girl Scout troop, and helping Piper chase her barrel racing dreams. Erin was a tenacious person: once she decided to do something, nothing and no one could stop her. This was most recently demonstrated when, at age 38, she decided to become a teacher like her mother and sisters. Erin recently graduated with a degree in education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and was enjoying her job as a PreK teacher at Kildare Public Schools. Before her education career, Erin had worked for Conoco Phillips, Ryder, Blanton Chiropractic Clinic, and served as a substitute at Ponca City Public Schools. She also assisted her husband, Andy, in running his business Budget Auto and Towing. Erin is survived by her husband, Andy of the home; daughter Piper Hill of the home; mother and step-father, Shellie and Doug Fitch of Lamont, OK; step-sons Bryon Lewis and his wife, Tara of Ponca City, OK, Jacob Lewis of Ponca City, OK; grandchildren Greyson and London Lewis; brother Kemper Hill, of Lamont, OK; sisters Heather Bledsoe and husband Dale of Red Rock, OK and Megan Jones and husband Chris, of Jenks, OK; grandmother Karen Fitch of Medford, OK; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Calvin and Delora Lewis of Ponca City, OK; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Linda and Dutch Bufford of Tonkawa, OK; sisters-in-law Kayla Kramer Jackson and husband Brian of Ponca City, OK and Chasity Bishop and husband Brandon of Ponca City, OK; brother-in-law Marcus Pugh of Memphis, TN; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
