Emily was one of our neighbors in Chicago, that is remembered fondly by all who knew her. She kept in touch with my mom long after she moved and my mom always enjoyed hearing from her . I’d like to believe they are neighbors once again in Heaven. my condolences to Emily’s entire family.

My mom Irene and sister Emily loved to reminisce about their favourite horse Barney who they road on the homestead. Aunt Emily had an infectious laugh and I’m sure the sisters are sharing a great giggle now that they’re reunited. They were deeply loved by their family. Love you Aunt Emily.

My grandmother was a kind, lighthearted woman who always made me laugh. Most of the memories I have of her remind me of how full of life and funny she was. Even when having our last visit before her passing, we played country music for her and danced around because we thought she’d best respond to it. We are so lucky to have had as much time with her on earth as we did. I will miss her very much and keep her in my heart always. Love you, grandma.

Even though I only knew Emily for a short time, I am blessed to have met such a beautiful soul.
