Ermon F. (Carter) Hinton, 88, of New Castle went to be with her Lord and Savior Thursday February 3, 2022, at Glen Oaks Health Campus. She was born May 22, 1933, in Georgetown, Kentucky to the late James “Brad” & Flossie (Bailey) Carter.
Ermon married the love of her life, Ray Hinton on May 6, 1950, and enjoyed nearly 70 years of marriage until his passing in February of 2020. Ermon was the last founding member of the Apostolic Pentecostal Church in New Castle surviving. She worked various jobs throughout her years, but the job she loved and cherished the most, was the title of mom and “Ma” to her kids, grandkids and great- grandkids. She was very active in their lives and spent many hours and miles on the road following them to band invitationals, basketball games and anything else they were involved with. She was so devoted that in 1997, she checked herself out of the ICU unit of the hospital so she could be at the historic Anderson vs New Castle basketball game at the Wigwam to cheer her grandson, Josh, on which New Castle won. Memorial Days spent at Ma & Pa’s house are something the grandkids will always cherish, especially watching Ma go down the slip-n-slide. A family tradition all the grandkids will always remember was “fried cornbread dressing” at Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve going to their house and opening “socks”. 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 is her 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 1 on the way; brother, Jimmy (Delina) Carter and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to her parents and her husband Ray, she is preceded in death by her son, Dennis Ray Hinton in Vietnam; grandson, Joseph “Joey” Silvers; brothers Doug & Rick Carter, and 3 infant siblings.
Visitation will be from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. Monday February 7, 2022, at Rose City Funeral Home 2011 Broad St New Castle, In 47362. A Going Home Celebration will take place at 1:00 p.m. at the Apostolic Pentecostal Church, 131 S. 26th St. New Castle, IN 47362, with Rev. Dan Silvers, Jason Silvers and Josh Silvers officiating.
