Emily was a resident of West Seattle for 75 years. She graduated from West Seattle High in 1952 and UW in 1958. Emily taught in the Seattle School District for 40 years. She taught at Baily Gatzert, Cooper, Jefferson & Lafayette. Parents put in special request to have their child in her class. The children loved her.
Em loved to bake, travel and make the occasional trip to Reno. Her travels took her to Europe, Russia, China, India and Hong Kong.
50 years ago the Street family adopted her. She became "Aunty Em". Emily loved our children and grandchildren and they loved her!
Em has 2 brothers, Steve and Bob. Special mention must be given to Sala and Amien Vakalala who were her caregivers for 7 1/'2 years. To them Em was family. They gave her very loving care. We would like to thank Scott & Leanne Malavotte of Malavotte and Assoc. for the excellent handling of Em's estate. We will all miss her!
A memorial service is at the Church of God, 16640 - 1st Ave S, Burien, Saturday Feb 23 at 2 pm. Lunch will follow.
