Memories Timeline


  1. Aunt Kathleen is very special to me… while at college, she became my second mom. To be invited to some home cooked meals and being able to use the laundry facilities was a real blessing to a poor college student. She was able to stop by in Omaha a few years back and we had a wonderful conversation centered around God. I am looking forward to the day in joining her in continued worship of our God. To Russ, Ray, Julie and Kevin and families… my prayers are with you. May God comfort you in your loss and joy in God's mercy and grace.

  2. How I wish we lived closer so I could be with you today. I'd like to give each of you a hug and let you know how much I love you. Your mom was my little sister and I will miss her so much. What a comfort to know that some day we will together again in our heavenly home.

  3. My Aunt Kathleen or Chee Chee as we called her, was always a lot of fun to be around. We always enjoyed our times with her at my parents lake home in Brainerd, Minnesota. Because she was from a large family, we had many family get togethers at every holiday and the highlight was that Chee Chee was coming. She always played with us and had the cutest laugh. At 16 I was privileged to sing at her wedding and was so nervous I could hear my knees knocking. She was an absolute joy and I look forward to seeing her again in heaven. Praying for you Julie and the boys – may God give you comfort. Thank you for caring for her and making her life special and of value. She is safe in the arms of Jesus now and that is the best place to be.

  4. My first memory of your family was when your mom and dad were working with the Mature Adult Group in Owatonna. Your parents were very special and loved to serve the Lord. I am sure that there is a great reunion going on in Heaven today. My heart goes out to you as you miss your mom, but so glad that we will all see her again.

  5. My memories of Aunt Kathy are too numerous to write down. We were more like sisters than aunt and niece. I will always feel blessed that we were able to travel to the east coast in June of 2009. It was a wonderful trip!! She was so kind to my mom and she was a beautiful Christian woman just like my mom. I will miss her. Hugs to her family from me. I am with you today in spirit.

  6. One of my favorite memories is of our family visit with yours in Oregon. I also loved visiting with Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Bob in northern MN.Aunt Kathleen was not only a wonderful Christian example to me, she was always at the center of some of my best childhood adventures!I am looking forward to having more adventures with her in Heaven!

  7. Please accept my sincere sympathy to your family. Often times when loved ones go through a rough illness, at their passing, people will say what a blessing. But that doesn't minimize the emptiness those that are left behind feel. Praying you'll allow Christ to fill that void and give you strength to face the days ahead.

  8. Your mom was such a special part of the whole Emery family. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all through these difficult days.
