We are so sad to read of Emily's passing. What a joy of a human being to work with at WPL! I (Colleen), always called her Auntie Em. We worked together first at the old Ambassador Library. Em always talked of her kids and grandchildren. So proud of all. So loved by her. Such a delightful, kind, funny human being. Colleen Hand and David Tripney
