Emma worked as a secretary for McNeil Insurance in Nederland before she met and married her husband James. She was a dedicated housewife, mother and grandmother. Emma is remembered as one who enjoyed cooking for her family and for her beautiful flower gardens, which made their home in Beauxart Gardens a showplace. They enjoyed many road trips as well as travels to Hawaii and Alaska together. Emma was a member of the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Port Neches. She had a special interest in her heritage and was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The family expresses gratitude to Emma’s daughter Linda Faulk, who served as a primary caregiver in her later years. Also, to the staff of Atria Collier Park, Pelican Bay Assisted Living, Hospice Gentiva and most recently, Oak Grove Nursing Home and Harbor Hospice.
