She leaves behind her life long friend, Barbara Kelley of Burlington and many friends in Fairfax as she was a member of the Fairfax Senior Center. Emily always loved her animals and leaves behind Harley and Bella, her most recent canine companions. There are many friends, acquaintances and family members that are and have been closely connected to her after 75 years of living in Vermont, that are too numerous to mention in this limited review of her life.
Emily retired from Urology Associates, Inc. where she spent many years managing their medical office. She had a brilliant mind for details and excelled in the field of business and medical management. Each of her daughter’s is gifted with her brilliance in each of their chosen professions.
Em was most happy and delighted when she was with her family or reading a book. In her home, her walls are full of pictures of her daughter’s and grandchildren and every shelf and surface is covered with books. She loved chocolate, roses, and spring. Her motto in life was always ‘I did the best I knew how’ and yes, she did. In everything she did, she was always doing her best. In the past year as she faced some serious health concerns, she was most pleased with how her daughter’s and their spouses/partners, her sister and her close friends in Fairfax came together to help and support her.
Emily has chosen A.W. Rich Funeral Home on Main Street in Fairfax to take care of her final arrangements. On Monday January 2, 2017, from 2-4 p.m. her family will be welcoming visitors there.
