Emma Kisling was born in Sanger, CA, to Henry and Louise Rau Scheidt. A life long resident of Fresno County, she attended Biola and Kirk Elementary Schools, and Edison High School. She found her life partner, Herman Kisling, at a ballroom because she had heard that he was a great dancer. They were married on May 27, 1950, in Las Vegas, NV. Emma had a career as a sales clerk for Cooper's and Gottschalk's Department Stores. She loved her family and treasured the time spent with them. She liked to sew, knit, and embroider. Family members have many of her afghans, tea towels, and pillow cases. Emma was preceded in death by her husband; parents; and brothers, Leroy and Jim Scheidt. She is survived by her daughters, Janet Melton and her husband Charles, and Marlene Jensen and her husband Dan; and five grandchildren and spouses, Jeff and Jodie Jensen, Eric and Tiffanie Jensen, Rebecca and John Heywood, Stephanie and Andrew Graziani, and Charles Andrew Melton. She was "GG" to eight great-grandchildren. A Graveside Service will be held at Belmont Memorial Park on Monday, August 13, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Hope Lutheran Church; or the California Armenian Home.
