McMullan, Erin Leah

July 20, 1987 – January 3, 2020
Age 32 of Woodbury. Our beautiful daughter of 32 years passed away on January 3, 2020 after a three and a half year battle with brain cancer. Words cannot begin to describe how much she will be missed by so many people.

Erin was born in Nyack, New York on July 20, 1987. She spent most of her childhood in Michigan and Ohio and in 2009 graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication. Following college, Erin developed a passion for working with young children and lived several years in Nagoya, Japan, teaching children English as a second language. Erin continued to follow her passion, working as a preschool teacher when she returned to the States in 2016.

Erin is survived by her parents Keith (Steve) and Jennifer and her brother Matthew McMullan, grandmother Doris Horn, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends that she kept close to her heart from her college days. She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Keith and Elizabeth McMullan and her maternal grandfather, Walter F. Horn.

A springtime memorial service will be held for Erin in Hawaii where her ashes will be scattered off the coast of Maui.

Donations in Erin’s memory can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
