We celebrate the life of Erika Nicole Fifer, 28, of Evansville, Ind., formerly of Mount Solon, who left this world unexpectedly Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012.
Erika was born in Harrisonburg on May 25, 1984, the daughter of Doug and LeAnna Fifer of Mount Solon, and Debbie Howdyshell of Mount Sidney.
Erika was a farm girl at heart. She enjoyed her job with Cargill as a farm marketer, loved to hunt and spend time outdoors. She was full of life and loved nothing more than spending time with friends and family. She was a member of Sangerville Church of the Brethren and a proud Virginia Tech graduate.

She was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Wilmer and Gladys Howdyshell.
