In memory of
Erma Virgina Trembley
Erma Virginia Trembley, age 96, of Slidell, Louisiana, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. Virginia was born September 18, 1923, in Jackson, Mississippi, where she worked as a switchboard operator for many years. She met her husband of 74 years, John Trembley, while he was stationed at a nearby Army Base. They were married on September 13, 1945, and were approaching their 75th anniversary this year. They raised their family in New Orleans and moved to Slidell over 35 years ago. Virginia was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Slidell and volunteered in the Food Pantry for many years. She also worked as a volunteer for STARC for over 25 years helping with special events. She loved making quilts for her family and friends, was a member of many clubs and organizations. She never met a stranger. She was preceded in death by her parents, J.W. and Gertrude Root; and a sister, Mary Cook. Virginia is survived by her devoted and loving husband, John; two children, Diane Trembley of Slidell, and John M. Trembley (Pat) of Metairie, Louisiana; two grandchildren, John F. Trembley (Erin) of Destrehan, Louisiana, and James Trembley of New Orleans; two great-grandchildren, Brooke Trembley and Kate Trembley; one sister, Ann Decell of Lexington, South Carolina, and numerous nieces and nephews. We will forever miss her and look forward to being reunited. The family would like to thank St. Joseph Hospice, particularly Lynne Mauthe, LPN, and Melba Yarborough for the kindness and gentle care they showed to her and the family during her illness. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral service. Funeral Services will be held on Friday, May 22, 2020, at First Baptist Church of Slidell, 4141 Pontchartrain Drive, Slidell LA 70458.
