Emma Justine Boswell Pachar was born on June 23, 1924 in Orange, Texas and passed away on October 29, 2016 at Harbor Hospice in Beaumont, Texas. She fought the battle of cancer several times over with strength and dignity.  She passed away with her five children by her side.  She married the love of her life, Max A. Pachar, Sr in 1947 and spent the rest of her life doing what she loved best, being a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother.  Everyone who knew her knew that she never met a child that didn’t love her immediately.  Animals, babies, and children gravitated to her like a magnet.  Her greatest accomplishment in life was easy for her because she had a natural gift of taking care of all those around her.  Next to loving her family was her love for First Christian Church of Orange, Texas.  She was a lifelong member of First Christian Church and a proud member of the church choir for eighty plus years.
During her sixty five year marriage to Max A. Pachar, Sr she supported him in his veterinary practice while raising five children at home.  Among the many activities they enjoyed in their long marriage they most especially loved to square dance, traveling in their motorhome and keeping a home that was open to all who wanted to visit.
