She continued her learning with family by taking night school classes in flower arranging, cake decorating, candle and bow making. Many birthday cakes were greatly appreciated with her creative talents. She was a very kind, generous and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Emily had a love for animals. During the winter months she would feed the wild birds in her backyard. Her great love was her precious toy poodle, Cuddles. Her second and last toy poodle, Misty, was deeply loved as well.
