Grandchildren: Phoebe J. Tillemans, Boston C. Tillemans, & Miles X. Tillemans. Niece Tamela & (Scott) Campbell as well as numerous nieces & nephews.

Emma was a loving mother, grandmother, sister & friend to all. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Susan Tillemans – “There were many great things about Emma Sue, but she was devoted to Park her husband. So much so that they were married 55 years! She left this world 55 days after Park passed away unexpectedly, with 55 days left in the year 2019 at 9:55 that Wednesday November morning. There’s clearly some spiritual meaning to the number 55 that she wants to communicate to us.”

“This past year has been a story of her commitment to “stay” for him. Many times she’d say she’s already visited heaven, and when asked why she returned she simply stated, “Daddy, Park”. As My dad and I watched over her since June of 2018 after her stroke, I realized how much they loved each other. Her commitment to Park was undeniably beautiful. She amazed me with her insights. When she was told that Park had passed away she said, “well, he came to see me last night in a cute little cap and kissed me!” She had no way to know he was buried with a newsboy cap. She did know that his love was constant. May she Rest In Peace free from pain.”

    Emma Sue was always one of my favorite people at Walton Ferry. She always had such a sweet spirit. She did my maternity leave for me before she got her position at WFE. Lots of good memories of her. Susan I am praying for you and the family.

    I was privileged to know this kind,caring,christian friend for over 40 years. We went on a tour of Europe with several teacher friends. She and her husband,Park, visited the Holy Land twice. She was so excited telling me about every detail while showing me pictures. In all the years I knew her she never said an unkind word about anyone.She loved God,Park, Susan, her grand children, family, and friends with her whole being.She was beautiful from the inside out! I will miss my friend with the lovely smile.
