Although Erminie was quiet busy during her childbearing years in the 50’s and 60's, she was a strong woman, enjoyed her family and attended many PTA meetings. In the 60's and early 70's Erminie worked part-time at Walgreens Pharmacy uptown and was a Substitute Teacher at Mc Donogh #7 Grade School. Erminie began working for South Central Bell. She and her husband moved to Harahan, Louisiana in 1979. Erminie then became a member of Jefferson Presbyterian Church and later laid her husband to rest in 1980.
Shortly thereafter one of her daughters convinced her to take a cake decorating class and a computer class at Delgado. Through the 80's and early 90’s Erminie Rita Maurin Buhler went back to her comfort zone and started performing with the Jefferson Symphony Chorus, a subsidiary of Jefferson Performing Arts Society. She retired from BellSouth in 1985.
Erminie Rita Maurin Buhler is already well missed, she left a family legacy built on love, understanding, strength and commitment. She was a lovely lady. The family wishes her well on her new heavenly role and finds comfort that she will always be watching over us.
