Prior to retirement, Emerise worked several jobs and eventually retired from Connor's Brothers in Blacks Harbour where she worked as a packer. She loved camping, clogging and playing Bingo. Emerise was truly a social butterfly who made friends wherever she went and she loved the extended family she made when she moved into Brunswick Court in St. George. Family was the most important thing in Emerise's life and she loved to be in the company of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren when able. Her love and devotion to her family will be greatly missed.
