She was a good friend to my mom... and one of ‘the girls’ who enjoyed getting together for coffee after mass. Such a kind, loving & generous soul.

Dear Dick, we were so sad to see that your mother passed away. June and I remember her so well from our years of visits to your farm where she was always lending a hand on a project or two in the kitchen or garden.

Much love to you and your family

I want to offer my condolences to the family of Emmy.
I knew three generations of her fine family. They were great supporters of me when I taught in Pownal.

As years continued on Emmy and I would be together at church functions. Her knitted items donated for the Christmas fair were always favorite items.

She was a beautiful warm person as her smile suggests.
