A recitation of the rosary and the Mass of Christian Burial for Erma J. Dehler of Milwaukie, a retired registered nurse who served in the U.S. Navy Nursing Corps for many years, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday in St. John the Baptist Church in Milwaukie. Interment will be in Willamette National Cemetery.

She died of lung cancer Sunday in her home at the age of 73.

Miss Dehler was born Jan. 12, 1918, in Buckman, Minn. After earning her nursing degree, she joined the Navy Nursing Corps.

During the course of her 28-year career, she served in World War II and the Korean War and taught at the Medical Corps School in San Diego.

Miss Dehler also had been in charge of numerous Navy medical stations throughout the world as well as in the United States before her retirement as a commander in the early 1970s. She moved to the Portland area following her retirement, and had been a volunteer at the American Red Cross Blood Center for several years.

Surviving are her sisters, Evelyn Allbright and Lorraine Schallberger, both of Portland, and Lucille Robeck of Waldport; and brothers, Ralph of Portland and Richard of Casper, Wyo.

The family suggests remembrances be contributions to Providence Medical Center's hospice program.
