She is also survived by "the lights of her life," her three grandsons, Zachary Albert of Rapid City and Josh and Bret Dumbaugh of Columbus, Ohio.

She was preceded in death by her talented carpenter husband, Manuel Albert, who passed away Aug. 3, 2009; her daughter, Isabelle Dumbaugh, who passed away Sept. 25, 2010; and one sister, Argelia Hernandez.

Albert, who died Friday, July 24, 2015, will be received from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the Martin Funeral Home, Inc., 429 Center Ave., Butler. A blessing service will be at 11 a.m. Friday at the funeral home. Burial will follow at the Saint Michael's Cemetery, where she will join her beloved husband and daughter. The family is sure that Emily would like to thank all the friends and neighbors who did everything for her when she needed it. Her son Jim and his family also thank all who helped to care for Emily in the final moments of her life. The family requests memorial donations be made to the Humane Society of the Black Hills, 1820 East Saint Patrick Street, Rapid City, SD., 57703.
