Mr. and Mrs. Charles (Shirley) Erbsmehl

Charles and Shirley (nee Miller) Erbsmehl of Fredonia were married Jan. 26, 1957 in St. Andrew’s Evangelical and Reformed Church in Buffalo.

Chuck retired from work as a self-employed piano technician in Western New York. Shirley is a retired Lancaster Central Schools elementary teacher. They moved to Fredonia from Clarence when they retired to be nearer to their only child, Barb Faxlanger and family.

For many years, Chuck (as known to all) tuned pianos for local people and organizations. He continues to enjoy playing his major instrument, the euphonium, in both the All-College Band (completing 21 years in 2017) and New Horizons Band at Fredonia College. He is a Mason at Forest Lodge and active in many Masonic groups.

Shirley is an avid quilter and continues her love of teaching by instructing AARP Driver Safety classes throughout the year.

They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary by hosting an open house at their home for family and friends.
