Amelia,
Words will never do justice to describe just how amazing you are and how hard all of this is to fathom.
I met you at MSJ in the ED when we were both young techs. You were really just the coolest and so down to earth and funny. We shared so many awesome times together at work learning new things and goofing around to pass the time. Both so bright eyed and eager to take it all in and do whatever we could to make a difference. I definitely wanted to be just like you. You were such an inspiring young woman.
Your confidence is something that sets you apart from any other. You were always ready for any moment whether it was a fun one, sad, or trying. I learned so much from you in those years working together. You were truly someone to lean on and definitely a bright and shinning light for me in some of my darker moments in life. When I had nothing to look forward to but work, you made it awesome and I was always so happy to work my shifts with you. Even cooler when there was a trauma to help out with your dad and uncle. You were the legendary Owens family!
We had quite a few fun times outside of work as well to include fending for ourselves in a small dive bar when a brawl fell into our lap unexpectedly. It became our tech war story of how we didn’t let anyone pick on us or our friends. We giggled about how our dads were so mad someone would even dare mess with their daughters and went right into dad action to take care of the situation just like dads do.
I wish we would have gotten a chance to work together again. I tried so hard to get on with you at Kaiser and I just missed you when you got hired at Methodist because I was on maternity leave.
There’s literally no other woman like you and it breaks my heart that you aren’t around to touch the lives of people the way you did for everyone who crossed your path. Those that never got the chance to know you missed out on a meeting a true rock star.
Much love,
Heather De Donato

I have too many great memories of Em too count. So let me tell you how we became friends. I had started working at MSJ in the ED during the last few month of Em’s pregnancy and she had to take off early due to doctor’s orders. So I didn’t get to meet Em until we both went to a get together at co-worker’s house. Owen was only a month or two old and she brought him with her. Me being a sap for babies approached her, introduced myself and offered to take Owen so she could get some food. She told me he loved watching fans because there was one in the room we were in and then went to grab some food.

Most people aren’t going to hand their newborn off to someone they just met, but I think she knew we were kindred spirits. That was 7 years ago and I cherish the fact that she ended up being more than just my friend. We considered each other family. I love her and will miss her with my whole heart for the rest of my life.

I promise to continue to keep Owen in my life and I will make sure to keep Em’s memory alive for him. I miss you Em and I love you forever!

Emmy came into this world at the time I lost my baby sister Carolyn to schizophrenia. I held Emmy when she was a few days old and she looked just like my sister Carolyn looked when she was a baby.
In Emmy’s beautiful eyes I found the strength and the hope and even the joy to go forward in this life
Emmy was adopted and when she was about 10 or 11 or so, she told her parents that she came from me, but I was too young to keep her so I gave her to Lydia as her own.
I think that everyone thought Emmy was being a bit silly. But Emmy grasped the truth of what was in my eyes. My mother could not care for my sister Carolyn; so I stepped in as her mother. Emmy read the truth in my eyes - I had lost a “daughter” to a disease and I was claiming Emmy in my heart.

When I got pregnant, Emmy was 13 - I worried that she would take my pregnancy as a betrayal. So I asked Emmy to be my daughter’s godmother.
Emmy grew up Jewish- so a godmother was a mystery.
She said yes - not sure what she had said yes to.

The next is according to Emmy’s mother Lydia:
Later that night Emmy went to her mother Lydia’s bedroom and knocked on the door. “Mom, what’s a godmother?”, Emmy asked. Lydia gave the strict Catholic definition: if the mother dies, the godmother raises the child.
“Oh” Emmy said and went back to her bedroom.
About an hour later, Emmy came back to her mom’s room again and knocked on the door
Lydia said “Come in Emmy”
Emmy said, “Well Mom, if you can help me, I think I can do it”

I had to explain to Lydia and Emmy the next day, that I was hoping for her to be a Godmother who would take Erin to Disney Land and the Fair - when Erin was 13, she would be 26. I would be old and totally uncool. Emmy would be at the height of coolness.

You never know about life
Except you have to live every moment and love everyone
Emmy did this
I hope to take a little of her with me and live and love like she did

As the night shift ANS at MSJ I have so many fond memories of Amelia and her happy smiling face. She always went above and beyond the call. She was much loved by all and will be remembered by all. My heart breaks for her family and my prayers are with you.

I am so sorry for the loss of Emmie. What a beautiful woman. Emmie and Alexandra were classmates and friends at Shalom School. She was always so funny. I remember when Alexandra had a slumber party and Emmie spent most of the night in the closet as she was upset about something. It was a drama filled evening. My thoughts and prayers are with her family, partner and especially her son. Lesley Heller
