Emma was a loving homemaker who was immensely proud of her family. She leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. She sacrificed herself for the sole benefit of her family. Her drive, dedication and the core principles she instilled in her family empowered them to achieve an education and become successful members of society. The sacrifices she’s made while raising a family as a single mother and the love she gave had a domino effect on her children and grandchildren; today they work in hospitals, homeland security, law enforcement and financial institutions
