February 13, 1987—September 4, 2017
On Monday, September 4, 2017, Erin Michelle Barnhurst passed away peacefully in her sleep, returning to her Heavenly Father. Erin was born in Elko, NV on February 13, 1987 to Marcia and Daryl Barnhurst where she lived her entire life. She was the youngest of four children. In her short life, Erin fought many health battles and was a 1-year cancer survivor. She had an infectious smile and sense of humor. One of her greatest accomplishments was her son Gabriel who she loved dearly. Erin enjoyed cooking and always aspired to go to culinary school, but unfortunately, with her health, never got that chance. Erin will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Erin is survived by her Mother and Father, Marcia and Daryl Barnhurst; her son, Gabriel Lara; brother, Ben (Teresa) Barnhurst; sister, Melanie (Charlie) Myers; sister, Lindsay (Chris) Snow; nieces, Alyssa Kufeld, Abbie Snow, Paityn Myers, Emmalee Myers, Maddie Snow, and nephews, Bryson Kufeld, Brayden Barnhurst, Brayden Myers, and Zachrey Myers, all of Elko, NV. She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Melvin and Rowena Westenskow; Ora and Eric Barnhurst; and many loving aunts and uncles.
A funeral service in her honor will be held at the LDS Church located at 3210 Sagecrest Drive on Friday, September 8, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. A viewing will be held from 10:00-11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, an account has been set up for her son at Elko Federal Credit Union under Erin Barnhurst.
