Emma Elizabeth Jameson left us to be with Jesus on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, with her loving family by her side. Emma was born on August 16, 1928 in Texarkana, Texas, the youngest of seven children. Emma moved to Arizona with her family at the age of 16. Just one year later Emma met the love of her life, Pete Jameson, and after just six short weeks they were married on her 18th birthday. Pete and Emma were married for 9 days shy of 67 years and had three wonderful children Marlin, Pam, and Wiley.
Emma was an extremely caring woman who was never selfish and lived to take care of her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Emma enjoyed watching any kind of sports, especially the Phoenix Suns, Diamondbacks, and later in life Tennis. Emma also loved keeping up on the latest local and world news and would have a healthy debate on the issues with anyone who was willing to take her on.
Emma was preceded in death by her husband, Pete; her parents Getty and Winnie Wiley; her siblings, Mildred, Leon, Bryan, Tom, Betty, and Jo; and her grandson, Alan Jameson. She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Marlin (Darlene) Jameson, Pam Daily, and Wiley (Lisa) Jameson; grandchildren, Sabrina (Bill) Jarkowski, Nina Daily, Jillian Jameson, Matthew (Alicia) Jameson, Morgan Jameson, Randi (Jeremy) Burnett, Tyrel Kelland, Chase Jameson, Chad Jameson, Brady Jameson, and Zoey Jameson; great grandchildren, Ryan, Reis, Kaelyn, Everly, Kali, Kadence, Keely, Jaeson, and Rhiannon.
