I have fond memories of Emily, always smiling and upbeat when she would come to spend time with Pete, even bringing things for an old neighbor who was at St.Joseph’s also. She was kind and caring and I was always so happy to see her! She spoke proudly of all of you as she carried such love for her family! My condolences to all of you!

We are sad to learn of Emily's passing and send our sincere condolences. Emily made a gentle, kind impression on us 27 years ago when she helped us acquire our home. As a young couple purchasing a true "fixer upper", she shared with us her sensibility and support relaying her love for family and a true sense of home. (And yes, she talked about "Sandy Beach" with great memories!) We are sorry for your loss and know you all will have wonderful memories of her. Andy and Karlyen Manke
