TRENTON - Emma L. Remick, 83, died September 24, 2015 at her home in Trenton, surrounded by her loving family, and Scooter the cat.

Emma was born on June 28, 1932 in Detroit, MI; graduated from Marmaduke High School in Arkansas in 1949; and from Michigan State College (now University) in 1955. She attended Eastern Baptist Seminary (now Eastern College), where she met and later married Oscar E. Remick in 1959. She was a member of the First Congregational Church in Ellsworth, where she served on several committees and also sang in the choir. An advocate of women's education, she had been an active member of P.E.O. since 1969 and was a founding member of its Chapter K in Maine.

She is survived by her three sons, Mark and wife Nancy of Trenton, John of Los Angeles, CA, and Paul of Cleveland, OH; as well as 5 granddaughters, Amy Remick, Megan Remick, Leah Remick, McKenzie Hunt-Bankole, and Amanda Day; grandson, Benjamin Atwater; 2 great-grandchildren, Eli and Savannah; nephews, Mike and Joel Jones; nieces, Jan Studdard, Julie Tilden, Andrea Tilden, and Sarah Warner; and sister-in-law, Loretta (Remick) Tracy. She is pre-deceased by husband Oscar; parents, Ezra and Bufie Lorance; sister, Effie Jones; brother-in-law Darwin Jones; nephew, Robert Tilden, Jr; and countless cherished friends.

Although Emma lived in many places she considered Maine (and Trenton in particular) "home" for over 55 years.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm, Sunday, September 27, 2015 at the First Congregational Church of Ellsworth.
