Emily’s parents are members of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Cambridge Springs, where Emily was baptized in September 2009. She attended French Creek Valley Christian School Day Care, where she made many special friends all of whom are considered to be an extended part of her family.

Family members preceding Emily in death include her great-grandparents, Ardell (Dutch) and Mary Bell Fronk, Roland and Jane Mott, Elton and Helen Crocker, and Edward and Mary Ann Brodowski.

Emily was an amazing child. She was so strong and brave and was an inspiration to so many people. Her smile and big brown eyes could light up a room. She was loved by all who knew her and even those who never met her. She will live on in all our hearts. “I love you and I’ll miss you, but I will see you later.”

Friends may call on Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Van Matre Family Funeral Home, 335 Venango Avenue, Cambridge Springs. A vigil prayer service will follow at 9 p.m. at the funeral home.
