It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Emma Elaine Wortman, 85, of Memramcook following a brief illness at the Dr. Georges L Dumont Hospital.
Born on February 5,1932 in Dover, she was the youngest daughter of the late Kate and Roy Steeves. Emma was retired from Roberterson's Greenhouse and a member of the Women's Institute for many years, and the Dover Baptist Church where she often played the organ and/or piano. She loved to garden and always enjoyed a crowd in her home that she proudly cooked for anytime they showed up!
She will be sadly missed by nieces Marilyn Peake, Beverly Steeves, Patty Johnston, sister-in-law Alice Wheaton as well as her special friend Dan Coneen and many others! Emma was predeceased by her husband Arnold, son Frederick and siblings Marguerite, Beulah, Leona, Iris, Kathleen, Everett and Earnie! She is the last surviving member of her immediate family.
The family wish to thank the doctors and staff of 4C for their excellent care of Emma.
A celebration of life and burial will take place at a later date at the Dover Baptist Cemetery.
Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home & Crematorium (372-4800).
If desired, memorials to the Canadian AIDS Society or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
