Obituary

Here are some of the final instructions Nick and Rhaven would like everyone to adhere to tomorrow. Due to the Covid we are restricted and have to monitor who can be in the funeral home and cemetery The family will be at DeFiore Funeral Home by 8:30 Visitation begins at 9:00. At that time we will be limited to only 20 people at a time in the funeral home everyone else will have to wait outside in the parking lot or their cars. You must maintain social distancing and wear masks while out of the cars. Note due to the mandate both the funeral home and the cemetary are being watched to make sure we all comply. Due to the size of the family there will be 10 immediate family members inside for basically the entire time, which will leave 10 space for others to come in and pay respects, the home will let people in small groups at a time as others leave to maintain the required count of 20 people at all times. https://www.facebook.com/defiorejorgensen/?ref=br_rs

Family and close friends are welcome to come to the farm where my sister Mary and her Husband Lonnie, and Uncle Bill will be to welcome guests who want to stay for the service to watch on the video if they want, or if anyone needs to take a break for a while with the kids or anything they can come to the farm. It is only 10 minutes away. Basically family and close friends are welcome, rule of thumb if they've been there before they are welcome. If not please don't give out the address. Anyway there will be food and drinks there and of course the bathroom. At 11 we hope to be able to have the Facebook live video feed of the service on the TV at the house so people can view it, I'm still not sure how. I'm thinking they will post a link on the funeral home site to enter into the service.

Cemetery: After the service there will be a procession to the cemetery people may join, or if they would prefer they can go to the farm. Again as ;you know only 10 people can be gathered at one time. All are welcome to follow us to the cemetery however only specific people will be able to walk up to the grave site. Those people will have to park along the side of the road and wait in their cars until a group of about 5 can join Nick and Rhaven there. Everyone else can drive by the site to pay their respects and see where she will be if they want to return later. Afterward you can go home, or go to the farm and wait until we can return.

But I know that you were going through a lot at home, but at least you’re in a better place now. Im really sad over this.. but at least I know you’re still in my heart. I love you so so so much and it hurts to lose you. But now you’ll be watching over me in heaven. I’m praying for you and your family.

Emma was one of the most accepting, loving, and caring people I knew. She always would check in with her friends to make sure they were okay. I remember all the fun times we had during middle school, and how at my 12th birthday we sang random songs and had one of the best times of our lives. Musical rehearsals this year were so much fun with her. She was an extremely talented artist and singer. She always pushed me to be the best I could be and face my fears. My prayers go out to all of the family and anyone who knew her.

I’m so sorry for everyone grieving. Emma was one of those students who would go out of her way to check other people. She was also an amazing writer. When she wrote a story, Emma took the time to choose her wording and phrasing with care. Whenever I got a chance to read something she wrote, I was always taken aback at the amount of thought that went into her writing. She treated people like she did her writing—with care and attention to detail. I’ll miss and remember her. ❤️

Sue P 2020-05-11 13:44:27

Emma's grandmother (my friend) deeply loved her. There are times when you ask people about their family and they will tell you of their love and joyful moments. There were many. But today, Emma's family have hearts that are broken. Full of grief and unbearable pain. Her absence has changed their world, and they have entered a wilderness, where so much has changed in such a short time. I pray: O God of the wilderness, whose arms surround us when we are hurting, whose wings protect us when we are afraid - afraid of living each day without Emma, and afraid of what is to come, who provides when we feel unable, provide for this family. O God of light, Whose light overcomes darkness, the darkness of blaming ourselves, of being confused, and lacking understanding; the darkness of wrong judgments, be their light, their vision through this darkness. Help them to see a life beyond what they see and hear today, a life of peace and hope. O God of Love, Whose love is so powerful that nothing can separate us from it - not even death, who loves us, even when we can not love because the pain - or the anger - is too great, whose presence is always abiding with us - with them - so they will not need to bear her loss alone, let her family find comfort in these truths. O God of the Universe Speak truth to the hearts of Emma's family. The truth that the constraints, limitations, and burdens of this world no longer impact Emma. Yet her life goes on in a new journey. It has not ended. She is now safe and content in your arms. And she does not want to leave. She is in her eternal home; a far better place. Help her family to not only celebrate her, but to love one another - to see their lives matter, and to choose a life-giving path out of this wilderness. The Lord bless thee, and keep thee The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

I was honored to be Emma’s math teacher her freshman year. She always strove to do her best and was truly gifted. Emma was also in my homeroom - she chose a seat right next to my desk and always made sure to strike up a conversation. She made sketches for me that I still have at my desk. I was privileged to accompany Emma singing last year and I was so proud of her dedication and spirit. She sang with such feeling and emotion. This past year Emma always went out of her way to give me a hug and to ask how things were going. I will never forget her or the joy her smile brought to my heart.

From the first time I met Emma I could always tell she was unique. She still had personality and heart that what seemed most girls her age did not. She was never afraid to be herself and embrace who she was. She was unbelievably kind and caring for those around her. I am so terribly sorry for your family's loss. She will be missed.

She was overall a smiling happy friend that I got to spend time with and I loved her sense of humor. She was one of the smartest people I knew too and to see her go makes me sad. Greatest wishes for the family of Emma.
