My dear mother was my Ginger Rogers - admired, respected, and so loved.
Her virtues were many and I was a very fortunate child to have such a loving ❤️ mother.

Dear family, What a loss of such a sweet lady and friend! Emily always had a smile, hug, and a “How are you doing” for me and others! I am so glad to have gotten to know her since marrying Herb. They were such workers for church and will be so missed! Rest in peace, sweet Emily!

I worked with Emily for a short time at Barton County State Bank, she was a gem! I will always think of her kind smile and mild manner when I think of her.
