OBITUARY

Priscilla Ann Emens

March 30, 1948August 13, 2019

Priscilla (Pokey) Ann Emens was born on March 30, 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio to Francis and Kathryn Stefanak. She was born into eternal life on August 13, 2019 and reunited with her husband Peter and her brother Andy. She grew up in the Chicago area and then settled in Alexandria Virginia where she met and married Pete Emens, the love of her life. They enjoyed many years together in Northern Virginia and West River, Maryland. Upon retirement, they embarked on the adventure of their lives – living on a boat and traveling up and down the east coast. They finally settled in Palm Coast, Florida where they enjoyed making many new friends. Pokey was blessed with a large and loving family. She loved and was devoted to her nieces and nephews – Mike, Judy, Jim, Carole, Charlotte, Damien, Melissa, Brad, Andy John, Mark, Emily, and Luke. Her medical conditions never held her back from helping others. Through it all, she remained a Beacon of Positivity. She leaves behind her beloved doxie “boyz” Red and Blackie who brought her such great joy. She will be sorely missed by her adoring sisters Suzanne, Kathy and Cindy, as well as Patsy, Dottie and numerous family members and friends. She was a life long and faithful Catholic. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School or a charity of your choice. There will be a visitation with Rosary at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Palm Coast Florida at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian burial at 11:00.

My very first introduction to Pokey was when she and Suzanne were having a yard sale for their parents Christmas ornaments and other miscellaneous items. They were from the 50s & resembled my memories from childhood. My three year old grandson, Mason, was so captivated by Pokey that by the end of our conversation, he was inviting she & Suzanne for a sleepover. God had a plan & led us down Anesbury that day & I am so grateful. Pokey was the light to many & the Lord blessed many through her life.

What a character and always so positive. I knew Pokey thru her sister Suzanne and remember her when we all lived in Virginia. The family with her Mom and Dad were always busy with the garden and church. Pokey did speak her mind and had some opinions that she often shared with others. I know she will be missed by her family and friends. They have great memories of her amazing life.

My fav. Memories of Pokey is the Biggest Smile she always had on her face. She light up the room with her smile . I visited her once at her home in Palm Coast , we went out to lunch at her fav. Restaurant in harbor, where Pete and her used to have their boat docked. She was always so sunny 😎 in her disposition.
She will be missed very much. 💖
Love you, Pokey 🙏💖

Every time I met Pokey it was a celebration. Initially we met for the christening of Isabel Sue Wegener in Houston. How she made her way to Houston with Cindy I will never know. The service was lovely and Pokey so kind to join with the Wegener family.
The next time we met was for Mark and Lindsay’s wedding in Atlanta. She looked striking in her black dress. Her exuberant personality communicated love and fellowship. All the sisters were at the wedding. It was remarkable how much they looked and acted alike.
Finally, we had a chance to meet for lunch at “Ned’s Restaurant”, a favorite spot in St. Augustine. She raved about the rich tasting food and the extra large portions. We had great fun with Suzanne, Bob, and, Cindy.
Pokey had a zest for life. My comfort is in knowing of her belief in Jesus Christ. I know she is free and happier than ever with God by her side.

I am so sorry to hear about Priscilla's passing. I only remember her with fond and happy memories. She was always a ray of bright light with her big smile and exuberant personality. I saw her often since I was a close friend of her sister, Cindy. I remember her teaching us how to dance and telling us stories about growing up since we were preteens. She would drive us in her convertible to pool parties always with good music on the radio. She was like a big sister to me also since I had no siblings and truly enjoyed spending time at her house and experiencing what it was like to have a large family. I haven't seen her in many years, but I too feel a sense of loss because she was a part of my growing up experience. My deepest condolences to her loving family.

It was my family and my great pleasure to know Pokey. She was truly a very special person. Her dedication to PALS People Adjusting to Limited Sight was always unbelievable. She gave her all in the planning for and giving to her friends, family and community. She will be deeply missed

While we did not know your dear sister Pokie, we know and love Suzanne, and Melanie and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you in the family in this loss of your sister and loved one. Having lost both of my sisters, I know the pain.

Pokey also gave me my statue of St. Francis of Assisi soon after I met her. She and my friend Sally, who is also in Heaven, and I all loved and still love St. Francis of Assisi. I miss Pokey on Earth but I know she is showering me with roses and will always be in my heart.

Pokey was and is 1 of my 2 best friends I ever had, and they are both in Heaven now. Pokey is like St. Therese of Lisieux showering the earth with roses. She has already performed this miracle healing me from my PTSD while I am here in assisted living in another state and for the first time in my life, I am not afraid as the Catholic hymn goes "Be Not Afraid." I met Pokey soon after I converted to Catholicism after having been raised in an abusive and agnostic/atheist family. Pokey helped lead the way and now she's performing miracles from Heaven. She also gave me this statue of St. Francis of Assisi shortly after I met her at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic parish in West River, MD.
