Erma L. Hardgrave

Erma, 98, passed away on July 29, 2020 at Fountain West Care Center of natural causes. Her family is honoring her with a private memorial service.

Erma was born May 6, 1922 in Township, Minnesota, the daughter of Frank and Mayme (Jebousek) Sirovy. She lived most of her life in the Des Moines area. Over the course of her working years, Erma worked for Plaza Lanes and Charlie’s SuperValu in Des Moines, Tonka Toys in Minnesota, and she retired from Dahl’s in Des Moines in 1987.

Erma enjoyed making ceramics, planting flowers, and playing cards with family and friends. She liked cooking and baking Christmas candies and cookies. Erma especially enjoyed the time spent with her grandchildren and was an avid Chicago Cubs fan.
