Merle Erdman, 98, of Quakertown died October 20, 2017 in Phoebe Richland Health Care Center. She was the wife of the late Allen R. Erdman. Born in Quakertown she was the daughter of the late Warren & Mamie (Landis) Lewis.

She was a sewing machine operator for the former Eagle Shirt Company before retiring. For 75 years she enjoyed her pen pal relationship with Doreen in South Wales, England, never meeting because they both had a fear of flying. Merle was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Quakertown.

Four grandchildren Michael Erdman (Debbie), Larry Erdman (Kim), Catherine Bianco (Michael) and Sarah Brugger (Chuck).
