Emma Day was a mother at heart, a generous and giving soul who graced the lives of those around her.
As a resident of Round Rock, she passed into the eternal peace and rest of God and his savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, Sept. 15, at the age of 88. Emma was a native Texan born in Port Arthur, to Raymond and Elodie Boudreaux Suire on Dec. 22, 1922. In 1945 she married Ralph Day in Port Arthur.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, along with her mother and father.
Survivors include her daughter, Jessie Hebert and husband Windell of Round Rock; granddaughters, Prix Fronckiewicz and husband Craig of Spring, Jolie Friedman and husband Michael of Round Rock; great-grandchildren, Clark Friedman, Kyle Fronckiewicz, Noah Friedman, Jessi Fronckiewicz, Emma Friedman; brother-in-law, Jack Day and wife Myrtle of Groves; step-granddaughter, Delores Willis of Victoria, and special Cajun cousins of Erath, La.
Emma was very dear to all who came into contact with her. Her youth was very moderate but she had a family that shared a great love. She was a very good athlete in her youth and always loved sports. She loved her two granddaughters and shared their life.
She loved seeing her great-grandchildren active in sports, dancing and cheerleading. She often said “I thank God every day for allowing me to live long enough to see these great grandchildren.” Another saying of hers was “every day is a good day.”
She impacted the lives of all she met. Her love brought unmistakable joy to all she knew. During the four and one half months from her accident until her death, her care givers and other patients fell in love with her even though she spoke not a word. The family will miss her but are thankful she is now safely in the presence of our Lord.
Emma was an only child and Jessie was her only child. They shared a marvelous, mutual love. Jessie spared nothing in meeting the needs of Emma. The world would be a wonderful place if such caring existed between every parent and child.
Those honored to serve as Pallbearers will be Windell Hebert, Craig Fronckiewicz, Michael Friedman, Clark Friedman, Noah Friedman and Kyle Fronckiewicz. Honorary Pallbearers will be Jack Day and her Cajun cousins.
