Erika passed away at home on Jan. 17 and we believe she is now in a peaceful place.

She was born March 18, 1977 in Mount Vernon to Debbie Lawson Browne and Dan Sundstrom, and comes from a long line of island pioneer families. She attended school in Friday Harbor from kindergarten to her graduation in 1995.

She was an artist and writer, although she found her true professional calling in caring for the elderly.

She is survived by her daughter, Danielle Elizabeth Crossen; parents Debbie Lawson Browne and Dan (Mary) Sundstrom; brother Shaun Armstrong; aunts Sondra deBeauclair, Linda Sundstrom, Arlene Rhine, Patsy (Jim) Scribner, Kathie (Stan) Reitan, and Darby Lawson; Josh Crossen, father of Danielle; and numerous cousins.

She will be greatly missed by her family and many loving friends.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be sent to the Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor. A private family service is planned.
