Erika Ann Mortensen

June 22, 1977 - May 26, 2007

Erika Ann Mortensen, 29, took her final journey home with the angels Saturday, May 26, 2007. She courageously battled a brain tumor for the last year and a half.

Erika was born June 22, 1977, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was raised in Wisconsin. She was a 1995 graduate of Waukesha West High School. Since 2001, she lived in Colorado.

Erika is survived by her son, Julian; parents, Cynthia Snell of Divide, Colo., and Sveinung Mortensen of Norway; stepfather, Kirk Plush of Divide; stepbrother, Jonathan Plush of Ohio; and many aunts, uncles and cousins, both in the United States and Norway.

The family would like to thank Odyssey Health Care, Joyce and Greg Plush, Nichole Rolain of Wisconsin, Jessy Ellefson of Colorado Springs, Colo., and their many friends for their support and love.

In lieu of flowers, please contribute to Julianís college fund.
