Erica was born on November 2, 1997 at Baptist Memorial Hospital in New Albany. As a child Erica played for little league teams and played softball while attending Myrtle Attendance Center. Those who truly knew Erica would describe her as loving, caring, funny, energetic, charismatic, kind, and a real genuine soul. She will be remembered to those who's hearts she touched most for for her outgoing spirit and as someone who never met a stranger.
Erica is survived by her daughter, Briana Faith Chism , her mother , Samantha Medlin (Timothy) , her father , Stevie Chism (Betty) , her grandparents , Betty Hutcheson and the late Gene Hutcheson of Hickory Flat , Larry Kelly (Betty) of Pontotoc , Carrol Chism (Jane) of New Albany , two brothers Steven Tyler Chism (Haley) and Seth Chism , two sisters , Andrea and Mackenzie Chism , a step brother , Ben Medlin (Samantha) , a step sister , Hanna Medlin , and numerous aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
Most of all Erica loved her family. The presence of her bright smile and caring heart in our lives will be sorely missed.
Due to the COVID pandemic, we ask that everyone wear a mask and practice social distancing. The family suggests that everyone bring a chair to the graveside service and an umbrella if there is a chance of rain.
