  1. I am very sorry to learn of Emma’s passing and my prayers extend to her and to her entire family.
    I was fortunate to know Emma through my late parents, Matilda and Salvatore Santucci; Emma was a bridesmaid in their 1949 wedding.
    Emma’s smile was contagious and she always cheered up everyone she came in contact with, she will be missed by many people.

  3. When we first met “Aunt” Emma in early 1987, she had the same happy, sincere smile that she always had through all the years that we knew her until she left us all. No matter whether everything was going great or not going great, Aunt Emma always, always found a way to smile and brighten everyone’s day. And her dresses and high heels were always a perfect match to go with her smile!!! It was truly an honor knowing her through the years – we will miss you and love you forever!!

  5. I was deeply saddened to learn of Emma’s passing. Her smile would light up a room and brighten every person she would meet. She was a special lady full of kindness and respect for all. I will always remember her visits to my parents (Francis and Mary DiBenedetto) and the joy she brought to them. My deepest sympathy to Lena and all the family we all share your loss.

  7. So sorry to hear of Emma’s passing. We lived above her and Al on the corner in Landenberg. We could not have asked for better neighbors. Emma was thrilled when our son was born, always checking on him. Even after moving any time we saw her she always wanted to know how the baby was. RIP sweet Emma.
