My deepest sympathy to Frank and extended family. I've known Emily and Frank for 40 years and have many fond memories of Linwood Community Catholics, car pooling to St. Paul, etc. Cherish the memories....something we'll always have and can't be taken from us. God Bless, Ray....
Was so blessed to have her in my life. Aunt Emily will be in my heart forever. She touched so many people in her life with her smile and her personality of love to not only her family but people around her. Will miss you but forever in my heart. Prayers with all family members and friends
We got to know Emily and Frank early on after we moved to Linwood in 1885 and then started attending St. Patricks. They were always so friendly and caring, and were so proud of their family. May you find comfort in knowing that she has rightfully earned her spot with the Lord. My condolences to Frank, Mark and all the family.
Emily and Frank were always such a loving couple and wonderful neighbors in St. Paul. They had such pride in their children - and I can only imagine their joy as grandchildren and great-grandchildren followed. My deepest sympathy to you all. She was a kind, friendly woman who could smile easily and cared deeply. I hope you find comfort knowing that she's in a better place now. -- Nancy Herther
