Emily passed into the hands of Jesus June 27, 2021. She was a bright, intelligent, strong, industrious, and loving mother. Emily is survived by her husband John and two brothers Paul Smith (Linda) and Ray Smith. She brought into this world two exceptional daughters Sharon Kay Forrest and Donna Kay Thomas (Ben). Emily loved her 10 grandchildren – Abigail and Ezra Thomas; Sarah, Rachael, Amy, Rebecca, Michelle, and Allison Ruhlin; and John and William Forrest. Her prayer would be that all persons would know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
