She is survived by her daughters Debra Jo and husband Larry Schroeter, Penny Ann and husband John Lea, Kelli Lynn Maiden Kenyon, and Karen Renae Maiden, all of Hollister, Missouri; and six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

Erena lived a full and loving life, always there for support and love for her daughters, extended families, and friends. She enjoyed her home of 40 years in Harrison. Over the years she liked to sew and craft and loved to collect chickens and teddy bears.

No service was planned; interment was for immediate family at Gobbler's Knob Cemetery, Hollister, Missouri.
