On Sunday, March 26, 2017, Emma passed away surrounded by the love of family and friends at Luther Home.

Emma is survived by her children and their spouses, Randy and Janet, Ruth and Randy, and Jeffrey, her grandchildren and their spouses, Tim and Nancy, Jen and Mike, Karin and Colin, Paul and Sharada, her great grandchildren, Brett, Casey, Gordon, Mason, Nic, Maddy and Matthew, her sister and brother in law, Lydia and Henry, and her sister in law Joyce, also many nieces and nephews. Each and everyone held a special place in Mom’s heart. She was predeceased by her daughter in law Ruby and by her beloved husband of 69 years, Eddy, whom she missed deeply each and every day for the last three years.

Mom and Dad’s home was always a special gathering place and each family member has a special Grandma and Grandpa story. Mom’s generosity went well beyond the family as she shared her handmade items with so many friends and acquaintances. Someone was always receiving a heartfelt gift from Mom.

Emma was a faithful, lifetime member of Christ Lutheran Church and even as she struggled with health issues these last few years her faith never wavered. She was a beloved part of the Luther Home faith community.

The family would like to thank the Luther Home staff and residents for all their love and support during Mom’s stay. If friends wish, a memorial to Luther Home, 1081 Andrews St., R2V2G9, in Emma’s memory would be a beautiful tribute.

Memorial Service will be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. on Saturday April 1, at 2:00 PM.
