"The Apron Lady"

Emalene June Pearson born July 6, 1930 in Horace Greeley, Kansas. She passed away peacefully in her grandson's arms on October 15, 2016 in Yuba City, California.

Emalene is survived by her daughter Debbie Robinson-Pearson of Yuba City, CA and son John Pearson also from Yuba City, CA. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren- grandson's Jason Pearson, Joey Castillo, and Derek Castillo and granddaughters Kristi Pearson, Jami Castillo and Cassandra McNeely.

Emalene was preceded in death by her parents Alva and Mae Fleshman, and daughters Tamia Pearson, and Marnell Melendez-Diaz. Also her siblings Everett Fleshman, Mervin Fleshman, Vernon Fleshman, Joannie Becherer, and Jeannie Gardella.

We mourn her absence but we celebrate her memories. Emalene enjoyed life. She made the best of the little and the big things. Her joyful and happy personality touched many people working the farmers market in the recent years and in her earlier career as a Cosmetic Consultant for Estee Lauder bringing the make-up to the Yuba Sutter area years ago working for Jay's and Bradley's Department Stores. Her biggest pride was her family and friends and seeing them smile. Her values were simple but very solid, love and respect was the core of her soul. Her journey now continues with her heavenly father.

Viewing will be Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 4pm-7pm at Ullrey Memorial Chapel, 817 Almond Street, Yuba City, CA. The memorial service will be Friday, October 21, 2016 at 11am at Ullrey Memorial Chapel followed by graveside services at Sutter Cemetery and then a celebration of Emma's Life will be at 2774 Kennedy Drive, Yuba City, CA immediately following the services.
