Our Emma will always be remembered for her loving smile, her caring ways and her love for her family and friends. She grew up in the Tupsley area, attending Aylestone High School and furthering her education at the Herefordshire College of Technology where she studied her BTec in Teaching Assistant & Social Care.
Em voluntarily worked at Barrs Court School and Widemarsh Workshop, during her studies at College. She was given the opportunity to work there for a short time until she moved to Orchard House, Withington to look after elderly residents with dementia. Em finally found her true vocation and worked with Dean Health Care working with adults with learning disabilities at St Owens Centre. She loved it there and tragically was only there 12 weeks prior to her passing. She was highly regarded and missed by friends she made during her short working years.
We have wonderful memories of Em growing up too many to share with you, but her 23 years were full of life, determination and enduring love for myself, Steve, Ben and all her family. She made us feel so proud of her achievements through her lows and highs, we couldn’t of asked for anything more. One of our fondest memories was her 21st birthday party will always have a special place in our hearts. Em set her heart on wearing a long dress and her cousin Keira had made a dress for her GSCE Textiles. Em tried the cerise two piece and it fitted like a glove! Em felt really special that night, drank and danced the night away with family and friends. A night we will never forget as she said "I love you Mum, thank you for such a wonderful party".
We dearly love and miss Em so much since that tragic day, when our shining light fell to sleep. There are too many dreams of Em's left undone, but we hope that caring for families through the ELY Memorial Fund, we can continue to do what Em loved and that was to care for people.
She was our beautiful precious Angel and will always remain close to all our hearts forever.
To our Em
"We treasure every moment you spent in life with us. We hoped to have you longer, but that's not meant to be. You left this world so suddenly. We think our hearts went too. We feel so lost and lonely, and we cry from missing you.
We know you’re in a better place. We know you’re happy there. We know one day we’ll join you, but the wait is hard to bear. Our hearts feel like it’s breaking as we try to carry on. You were our life, our everything, but now sweetheart, you’ve gone. We’ll count the years until the time we join you there above. Where then we'll be, eternally, together again our love.
