We didn’t know Emma but we do know her daughter Irene. Emma must have been a very special person to have raised a daughter as warm and giving as Irene.
Our deepest sympathy to Irene and the family for your loss.

I will always remember Emma as a loving and giving person. Donald and I are especially lucky that we got to share some very special memories with her in Slovenia.
She cared so much about her family and friends and will be missed by all who knew her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family now and always.
Donald and Janice
