    Several years ago I had the pleasure of bowling in the Valley Girls League with Emma and Bea and several other wonderful women. I was saddened to read of Emma’s passing. She was a “pint of piss” to quote Nancy Shepherd. An excellent bowler, funny and very young at heart. She will be missed by many, for sure. Wishing the family peace and joy in their memories of Emma.
