SHEFFIELD — Erma F. Salisbury, 80, a longtime resident of Ashley Falls, died early Saturday, July 5, 2008, at Fairview Hospital in Great Barrington. She had most recently resided at Geer Village, a retirement community in Canaan, Conn.

Born in Sheffield on Dec. 16, 1927, daughter of Henry and Lena Markham Funk, she graduated from the former Sheffield High School and, in 1949, from the former Henry W. Bishop School of Nursing in Pittsfield.

Her husband, Albert J. Salisbury, whom she married in Old Parish Church on June 30, 1951, died in August 1973.

She leaves three daughters and sons-in-law, Patricia Ann and Richard Wright of Ashley Falls, Diane Lena and Kenneth Bartow of Otis and Donna Lily and John Bedard of Lenox; three brothers, James Funk of Winsted, Conn., Russell Funk of Ashley Falls and William Funk of Great Barrington; three grandchildren, Jessica Lee Sarno, Elizabeth Marie Wright and Nicholas Arron Bartow and three great-grandchildren, Connor John Sarno, Austin Robert Lee and Cierra Rose Lee.
