PORTER, Emma Agatha

On Sunday, September 6, 2015, Emma passed into the presence of her Lord at the age of 92 years. Emma was born in Bruderheim, Alberta, the homestead area of the Prochnau family on July 16, 1923 the youngest child of Samuel and Pauline Prochnau. A long time resident of Surrey. Emma is predeceased by her loving husband, Stanley of 60 years (September 6, 2001) her brothers Nathan, Arthur, Leonard, sisters Pauline Calvert and Lydia Bielert, her daughter-in-law, Kathy Porter and grandson, Daniel Porter. To cherish her memory, Emma leaves her sister, Ruth McKay of Vernon, son, David and daughter Muriel (Ib) Larsen. Her love for her family extended to 5 grandchildren as well as her 14 great grandchildren. Emma enjoyed a warm relationship with her numerous nieces and nephews. Emma with her husband Stanley enjoyed many happy years of travel and adventure after retiring from their hardware business in Tsawwassen. During their time in Tsawwassen, they were founding members of both the South Delta Baptist Church and the Tsawwassen Alliance Church. Although Emma missed her husband dearly, she maintained wonderful relationships with family and friends taking an active interest in their lives. Her “Marquis” family helped sustain her in her latter years while allowing her independence to be respected. As her physical health declined, her spirit and spunk never wavered. Emma’s deep founded faith from her Moravian background was an anchor in her life giving her quiet strength. An invitation is extended from Emma’s family to a service on Friday, September 18, 2015 at 1:00 pm at Victory Funeral Centre 14831 – 28th Avenue Surrey, BC. A time of visitation will be at noon. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to The Bibles for Missions. Condolences may be offered at www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca
