Emma was a sweet, lovely lady. I am of the Vern Wright family. Emma's father, Hurley Wright, was my father's brother. Hurley was the oldest child of Leander and Barbara Ann (Spitler) Wright and my dad, Vern, was the youngest in that Wright family. We were all raised in Tuscola. Emma and I are first cousins. My sisters, Jane Ann and Janet, and my brother, Jim, all send their condolences to the family. We cousins are getting few and far between.
Love, Judy Wright Landeck

Shirley, am sorry to hear of Emmas passing. I was hoping to feel better today, but unfortunately that is not the case, so have not ventured outside.
Emma and I sure had some great times at the Argus, she was good to me and helped me with stupid mistakes I made many, many times. She will be missed.
