Born in Hamorton, PA on February 17, 1932, Emma was the daughter of the late Fredrick and Ada Miller. Growing up, she had many fond memories of going to work with and attending Christmas parties with her father, who was the head gardener at Longwood Gardens when the DuPont family was still in residence. More recently, Emma enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels who visited the feeder that her daughter and longtime caregiver, Sharon, had put in her backyard.

She is survived by her daughters, Sharon Murphy and Beverly Reinholz and her husband, Jack; and granddaughters, Melissa Murphy, Megan Murphy, Sara Beach and her husband, Joe, and Laura Reinholz.
