Emily was a strong woman of God whose hospitable and servant heart were greatly evident in the way that she welcomed everyone into her home. She touched so many lives through taking time to chat on the phone, make baked goods to share and by inviting people over for meals. It was through giving that she received joy and was always willing go above and beyond what was required. Emily’s heart reflected a life rooted in Christ till her last day on earth.
The family would like to extend a huge thank you to the health care staff, and the family and friends for all the words of encouragement, food, visits, and prayers over the last couple days and weeks.
To God be the glory for the beautiful woman that Emily Thiessen was.
