Aunt Emmaline Chapman Burgon dies at age 90!

Dear Family,

My aunt, your great-aunt, Emmaline Amanda Burgon, wife of Stanley Burgon died this week. Kathy, her daughter, was my closest cousin as I was growing up so I spent a lot of time at their home in Union. She was a wonderful woman, sometimes a real character.

Thought you'd like to know.

Love, Mom

Emmaline Chapman Burgon 1917 ~ 2008 Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Emmaline Chapman Burgon, passed away February 20, 2008, surrounded by her loving family.She was born July 10, 1917 in Bluewater, New Mexico to Hyrum and Eda Chapman. She married Stanley Willard Burgon 67 years ago on June 16, 1941. She was a faithful daughter of God and served in the LDS Church in many ward and stake callings, including ward and stake Relief Society president, stake Young Women's president, ward Primary president and as a teacher in Relief Society and MIA for many years. She began playing the piano and organ as a young woman and her musical abilities allowed her to serve as ward and stake organist and also gave her many opportunities to accompany throughout her life. She was always a support and strength to her husband Stanley and served a mission with him in Nauvoo, Illinois. Her greatest quality was her unending compassion. She was a great example of Christ-like love and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by her husband, five children; Garth (Kathy), Kathleen (Neil) Moyes, John (Elaina), Sherilyn (Randy) Westbrook, and Scott (Teresa) and also by her 17 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
