Erin Elizabeth Reilly was born on January 14, 1969 in St. Louis, Mo. She was the second child of Dennis and Jan (Stelloh) Reilly of Edwardsville.

She married the love of her life, Jim Logan, on November 10th, 2000. Together they are the parents of Nick, Katie, Layne, and the late "Baby Jake" Logan. She is the step-mother of Jared Meyer and Joanna Holmin. When she was not busy being a loving wife and mother, she spent her time practicing family law in Edwardsville. 

Erin loved attending baseball and basketball games, gymnastic meets, soccer games, and being a Girl Scout Leader. She loved people. She was constantly donating her time through Pro Bono work, helping others without seeking credit or asking for anything in return. 

She was a cancer survivor and a self-proclaimed "Rock Star", singing her way through life. She passed peacefully in her sleep on February 26, 2018. Erin leaves a legacy of laughter, love, and kindness that reminds us that we should love a little more, laugh a little longer and hug a little tighter and eat more chocolate! 
Erin attended Edwardsville High School and graduated from Daniel Hand High School in Madison, 
Connecticut. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and her Juris Doctorate from Saint Louis University. 

Erin is survived by her husband James Logan, her children Nick, Katie, and Layne Logan, her step children Jared Meyer and Joanna Holrnin, her parents Dennis and Jan Reilly, her siblings Becki Reilly (Ron Allen) and Christopher Reilly (Tracey Snow), and many Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles and great great friends.
