Emily was the sweetest nicest custodian friend a teacher could ever have. I was so lucky to have you in my classroom and life.
Jon and Janet – Thank you for sharing from your experiences with my mother and for your kind words. God blessings, David
I live in Riverview Apartments where Emily lived until a couple of months ago when she moved to Summit. She was a great “gal”; sharp as a tack; I will miss occasionally sitting at her table at Paynter, and especially going with her on the monthly trips to Watertown, especially dining with her at Red Lobster. She was one of the great characters I’ve ever met – R.I.P.

David & Tim- So sorry to hear of this. Your Mom was one of the strongest & hard-working women I have ever known. I only saw her a few times around Clayton the past few years, but she always had a smile & kind word for me. She always spoke of both her boys- she loved you so much- She was a great friend to Mom & I have good memories of the times our families spent together. May your memories help you through this difficult time. With Sympathy, Betsy
