Erin Keim, 34, of Benton, was taken home to be with the Lord on Feb. 19. She was born Oct. 10, 1977, in Little Rock.
Erin lived a life acquainted with illness from an early age of 6. Many saw the results of that in her physical limitations. Those who knew and loved her saw her strength and courage. Her great loves in her life were always first, her daughter Taryn; her family; North Bryant Baptist Church; and the one who gave her strength, hope and courage, her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Erin was preceded in death by her grandparents, John and Mary Lou Smith; and her uncle, Leroy Smith.
She is survived by her daughter, Taryn Michelle Keim of Benton; her mother, Paula Sue Smith of Bryant; a brother, John Tyler Smith of Bryant; a sister, Lou Ann Pierce Sherman of Benton; and a number of cousins including her lifelong special relationship with Howard and Phyllis Sawyer.
Memorial services will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 23, at the North Bryant Baptist Church, Hwy 5 and Prickett Road in Bryant.
