Emma was one who possessed all of the "Fruits of the Spirit" in her very humble way. It was an honor to know her as she made you feel so important.
She and Ed were faithful lay-people in State Street Church of the Nazarene when I was growing up. Emma would help wherever she was needed ... AND she always brought a smile and a kind word. I especially remember her working in VBS . Such a joy to have her!
If you knew Emma, you were blessed! You were loved by her.
Hugs to Karol, Denny, and Marcia ---- and rest of the family members.
May you sense the love and extra strength for the days ahead that only comes from THE ONE that Emma served.
