September 20, 1918 – May 9, 2011

Emma Morrison was granted her angel wings on Monday, May 9, 2011. At the age of 92, our loving mother passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Born in Romania, Emma happily lived most of her life in Edmonton, with the last 11 years spent in Calgary, close to family she adored. She was passionate about gardening and was a devoted, loving, kindhearted, soul mate to John, her husband of 55 years. Emma loved unconditionally, and was always available to lend an ear and give a comforting word.

Emma was welcomed into heaven by John, in addition to her baby girl Agnes and numerous siblings. Grandma is looking down on us as she sings with the angels.

She will be lovingly missed and remembered by her sister Ella (Don), children Lorrie (Wayne), Eldon (Marcia), cherished grandchildren Charity (Dennis), Sharaya and Connor; and precious great-grandchildren Desi, Sapphire and Jade. Our family is forever changed.

Heartfelt thanks are extended to the staff at Palliative Home Care, CBI, WeCare and ComCare for their kindness and compassion throughout this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made directly to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS& HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive SW) on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through

In living memory of Emma Morrison, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

    Dear Lorrie, Eldon and families,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you throughout this very sad time.

    Your parents had to have been very special people, Lorrie, to have raised a daughter like you, with your compassion for others and your integrity.

    We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers that God will walk with you in this time of sorrow.

  3. Wayne and Ramona Ergezinger :

    Dear Eldon, Lorrie and Families;
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. Mona and I are very sadden by the news of the passing of your dear mother and father. As a child I have very fond memories of my Aunt and Uncle. I remember great times on the farm when both of you, Eldon and Lorrie would come to visit and pick berries. Emma was a lady I learned to admire and look up to and was priviledged to know her as my Aunt.
    Our continuing prayer is that God will give you peace and comfort during this time.
