Erica Thompson passed away September 12, 2014 at Orange Regional Medical Center, Middletown, NY. She was only 19. Born in Hackensack, she lived in Hackettstown and Kearny.
Private arrangements were handled through the Armitage & Wiggins Funeral Home in Kearny.
Erica graduated from Queen of Peace High School where she enjoyed cheering. She was currently a sophomore, Fashion Major at Montclair State University with plans to finish at F.I.T. in New York City. She loved her part time job at Charmin Charlie's both in Clifton and NY.
Although, Erica's life ended far too soon, she lives on not only in the hearts of her adoring family but through the selfless and loving act of her mother, Donna. Erica's organs were donated and so far we know of seven young people saved by this beautiful gift of life.
Erica leaves behind her mother, Donna (Loy) Thompson; her uncle: Alexander; Aunt Margaret Loy; and her grandmother: Connie Loy. She was predeceased by her loving grandfather Al Loy.
