Born in Woodridge, Manitoba, Emma moved to Port Arthur in the 1930’s. Shortly after, Emma moved to Beardmore where she lived for many years, and in 1950 moved back to Port Arthur with her family. Emma was employed by the Port Arthur General Hospital in the Diet Kitchen, and later by McDonald’s for twelve years, retiring in 1988; and always treasured the friendships she made at work.
