Emily attended both Persimmon Baptist Church and Clayton Baptist Church, where she loved going to church, singing and shaking hands with everyone. She was very proud of her big brothers and looked up to them. Known for her contagious smile and perfect cartwheels, she loved big and everything was exciting.
She loved being a Rabun County Wildcats and had a love for cheerleading, basketball and soccer. Emily enjoyed going fishing with her daddy and getting her nails done with her mommy, especially the days when she was able to do both.
