WADE, Emma Lee, born November 28, 1937 in Kelso, Tennessee to Frank and Georgia Scott, departed this life after a short illness October 27, 2018.

Emma confessed Christ at an early age and was a member of the Greater Love Missionary Baptist Church. She graduated from Dunbar High School and furthered her education at Sinclair Community College, earning a degree in Nursing. She continued her nursing education and became a Registered Nurse with certifications in the State of Ohio and Tennessee. She was an extraordinary person, touching the lives of so many, not only through nursing but through her church, and having her as a friend.

Emma had a kind, positive and giving spirit that will be surely missed. She lived her life to the fullest, never missing a chance to touch others with her expertise, or with a kind word. She took every opportunity to connect with her family and friends.
