Emilie will truly be missed by the Oxford Glen family. She was our precious jewel and enlightened our hearts with her quick wit and infectious smile. We thank the family for entrusting us to care for Emilie. She touched us in so many ways. Although she is gone in spirit her memory will live on in our hearts. May the family find joy and comfort in knowing she is now at peace.

God Bless you all

Working for Oxford Glen in activities I met Emily and instantly connected. I saw her dance and sing and interact. My best memory was hearing or listening to her pray to the group before we got started with our daily activities. I have a video I watch often of her praying. I know Emily has earned her heavenly crown. RIP my friend.

I remember Emily’s and Charlie’s garden and how I used to mow the yard for them. And how generous they were. When Charlie passed, she didn’t want to put a Christmas tree anymore, so she gave my daughter Tara her angel, which she still has. We loved Emily and I still miss her. She was a wonderful neighbor
