ERICA LYNN WEBB RIOS
Erica Lynn Webb Rios left her earthly home on January 28, 2020 to enter the gates of heaven. Erica was 30 years old and lived in Hixson, Tennessee. She grew up in Jasper, TN and also a graduate from the Class of 2007 at Marion County High School. In high school she was a volunteer fire fighter for Jasper Fire Department.
She was employed at her and her husband’s family restaurant Rafael’s in Hixon, TN. Erica was of the Baptist faith and attended East Brainerd Church of Christ in Chattanooga, TN.
How do you describe Erica? Erica was full of life, energy, a girl that flew by the seat of her pants and nothing stopped her from conquering her dreams. She was very generous, loved her “Papi” (her husband Julio Cesar Rios), her children, her Momma, Daddy, Sisters, Brother, and her huge extended family.
In Erica’s spare time, her memories were being a photographer, traveling and spending all her quality time with her children and Papi.
Erica was a selfless young lady and this was shown by her being a donor at the time of her death. By her generosity she gave life to four recipients by donating her heart (New York), kidneys and liver (Nashville). Her life was cut short however she lives on through giving life to others.
She is preceded in death by her father, Bobby Garland Webb; maternal grandfather, Robert Stanley Hewitt; paternal grandmothers, Christine Middleton Webb and Virginia Haynes; and paternal grandfathers, Robert Eugene Webb and W.G. Haynes.
