Several years later, after her marriage to Patrick A.

Emily was a devoted member of the Catholic faith her entire life and followed the example of her savior Jesus Christ in the conduct of her wonderful loving dedication to family and friends. As a mother of 10 children, one who died due to a mishap shortly after birth, her family was blessed by her loving and protective presence as they encountered and dealt with their individual challenges in life. Her enduring positive frame of mind and faith in the Lord were the hallmarks of her character. Her voice was beautiful and she loved to sing even during the darkest of times. She never allowed despair to conquer her faith and positive attitude. Her countless acts of kindness and service to her family and others will never be forgotten and have earned her a special place in Heaven with the Lord and her departed family members. During her early adult years Emily worked diligently to feed, clothe, and provide loving care for her nine surviving children. This included seeking employment outside the home to help her husband provide for the financial needs of their large family.
