NEW HAMBURG, ON, September 28, 2022: It is with profound sadness that The Erb Group confirms the sudden passing of our co-founder, Viola Erb on September 24, 2022.
Waterloo Regional Police have determined that her death is being investigated as a homicide. It is inappropriate to speculate any other details at this time. This is an ongoing police investigation, and we will defer questions to Waterloo Regional Police for any additional information and updates.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Erb family, and we are allowing them this time to grieve the loss of their loved one.
