Emily (Billingslea) Wirth passed away peacefully on January 8 in Bellingham WA. Born to Leeds "Punk", and Emily "Bobby" Billingslea in Westminster on May 7th 1923, Emily ('Siddie' to some) was a lifetime resident of Westminster and the Baltimore area. She was a graduate of Western Maryland College, class of 1943. Emily and her husband Bob Wirth raised their three children in the Mt. Washington area of Baltimore. Emily returned to work later as her children were older and was a case manager for the Department of Social and Health Services until her retirement to Westminster. She spent the last sixteen years residing at Carroll Lutheran Village, before moving to Washington in March of 2016 to be near her daughter, Leigh. Emily was a devoted member of St. John's Episcopal Church in Mt. Washington. She worked tirelessly in the alter guild, and was proud to have delivered Meals on Wheels for twenty-five years. Emily leaves behind three children Susan, Tim and Leigh (Kate) and five grandchildren Lauren, Hannah, Jordan, Shae and Jessica. She is also survived by her brother Jim Billingslea (Caroline) and their children Debbie and Jaime and their families, all of Westminster. A private service will be held later this year in Westminster.
