  1. Emily lived a charmed life, she had 6 grown children. , She wasn’t one to boast
    about her life. Emily saw no difference
    She treated everyone the same, She had great
    stories to tell. When you visited Emily’s
    home, she greated you with her good old fashioned hospitality you don’t get anymore, Emily loved to talk

    She loved being a wife .mother and grandmother,she was halarious, we would
    have tea together and talk about everything that mattered, she was a humble young lady she didn’t want to be fussed over, towards the end of her life
    she worried about her family, Thinking they would have hard time without her
    I would say you raised 6 fabulous children
    She leaves a legacy of hope love pride
    You will never be forgotten! We still needed you ,but God needed you more

  2. I recall taking that picture of Aunt ‘Em on my last visit to Denver a few years ago. What a wonderful visit! Reminiscing about family history, the Jersey Shore, New York, and of course our mutual love of Colorado. My sincere condolences to all my cousins who have lost a wonderful Mom. Rest in peace, Aunt ‘Em, you will be missed.
