Chillicothe - Emogene Wireman, nee May, passed away August 7, 2018, in Chillicothe, Ohio, surrounded by her family. She was born on August 14,1927, and was the youngest of six siblings born to Fred and Bertha (Howard) May in Salyersville, Kentucky.

Emogene took great pride in having been a dedicated employee of Bob Evans Restaurants for over twenty years. She also took great pride in the countless holiday meals she prepared for her family as well as the many beautiful hand-made quilts she produced. She also enjoyed public auctions where she obtained her treasured collection of pottery, glassware and furnishings. Emogene was a very generous, compassionate, empathetic person and spent her entire life caring for and about others. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

She was predeceased by her parents, sister Geneva and her husband Howard Miller, sister Lela and her husband Herbert Spurlock, sister Alberta and her husband Walter Prater, brother Glenn and his wife Helen, and brother Kenneth and his wife Mary.
