Ermon F. (Carter) Hinton, 88, of New Castle went to join his Lord and Savior on Thursday, February 3, 2022 at the Glen Oaks Health Campus. She was born on May 22, 1933 in Georgetown, Kentucky to the late James “Brad” & Flossie (Bailey) Carter.
Ermon married the love of his life, Ray Hinton, on May 6, 1950, and lived nearly 70 years of marriage until his passing in February 2020. Ermon was the last founding member of the Apostolic Pentecostal Church of New Castle to have survived. She held various jobs over her years, but the job she loved and cherished the most was the title of Mom and “My” to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was very active in their lives and spent many hours and miles on the road following them to group invites, basketball games, and whatever else they were involved in. She was so dedicated that in 1997 she retired from the hospital’s intensive care unit so she could attend the historic Anderson vs. New Castle basketball game at the Wigwam to cheer on her grandson, Josh, on which New Castle won. The memorial days spent at Ma & Pa are something the grandchildren will always cherish, especially watching Ma go down the slide. A family tradition that all the grandkids will always remember was “fried cornbread dressing” on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, going home and opening “stockings”. She was devoted to God and every morning she and her husband, Ray, would sit and read the Bible to each other and discuss the contents.
Left to cherish Ermon’s memory, his daughter, Shalinda (Danny) Silvers; grandchildren, Kristi Hinton, April Stallings, Jason (Carla) Silvers, Josh (Charity) Silvers, great-grandchildren, Dani Garner, Jakob, Jesse Dishmon, Haley (Jonathon) Mackowiak, Bryce, Olivia, Drew, Carter, Nash Silvers and Makenzi and Makenna Stallings; 6 great-great-grandchildren and one on the way; one brother, Jimmy (Delina) Carter and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Besides her parents, and her husband, she is predeceased by her son, Dennis Ray Hinton in Vietnam; a grandson, Joseph “Joey” Silvers; two brothers Doug and Rick Carter, and three infant siblings.
Visitation will be from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday, February 7, 2022, at Rose City Funeral Home 2011 Broad St., New Castle, In 47362.
