Grant_EmmaOn December 1, 2011 at the Carman Memorial Hospital, Emma Mary Grant (nee Schilling) peacefully passed away with family by her side.

She leaves to mourn her passing her children; Cynthia (Kerry), Glenda (Ricci), David (Christina) and Denise (Dwayne), her grandchildren; Doug, Andrea, Stephanie and Anthony, Emily and Courtney, Sara, Melissa and Christopher and great grandchild Seth. She also leaves her brother Joe (Marie), sister Ann (Mark) brothers in law Richard (Lois), Garry (Rose) and sister in law Irene, also many nieces and nephews. She leaves to join her husband Raymond, her twin sons Byron and John, her parents Anthony and Krescentia her parents in law William and Philomen, her brother Rudy, her sister Helen, her brother in laws Lawrence and Melvin.

Emma was born at the family home in Morden, MB on February 12, 1932 to Anthony and Krescentia Schilling. She attended school in Morden and the family later moved to the Graysville, MB area where she finished her grade 12 education. She worked hard all her life from attending to the family farm from chores to farming. She married her true love and life partner Raymond Grant on November 5, 1955. They raised four beautiful children on the Grant family farm near Barnsley, MB.

Emma was a stay at home mother and a farmer's wife. She enjoyed staying home, raising her children and sharing the responsibility of running the family farm. She worked hard from the time she got up to the time she went to bed. She grew a huge garden and cared for a fruit orchard also. She canned, froze and dried everything that she produced. When her pantry, bins and freezer were full she shared with friends, the community of Carman and whoever showed up on the yard. She needed to feed the world.

Emma moved to the Boyne Towers after the passing of her spouse three years ago. She enjoyed the company of her new friends and the activities during the weekday afternoons. She continued to knit and crochet, making different items for her friends. She crocheted plastic bags so she could sell them to help find a cure for diabetes. She knitted mitts and scarves, repaired many dolls and clothed them for the Christmas Cheer Board. She will be missed by many.

Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Doyle's Funeral Chapel, Carman, Manitoba. Burial will be held at a later date.

Donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetic Society or charity of one's choice.
