Emily M. Short

Emily M. Short, age 90, November 26, 2011, she went home to be with her Lord and Savior where she will be waiting for you. Her prayer was always that we would be an unbroken circle around God’s throne. Emily was a wonderful loving wife to her husband, Elza Short, whom she married on February 21, 1921.

She is survived by her three daughters, Betty L. Cummins, Karren (Sam) Griffith, and Florence Norene “Nonie” (Junior) Spencer; daughter-in-law, Ruth Short; brother, Wayne Moore; 12 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren; and eight great-great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Charles M. Short; daughter, Peggy Jo Short; brothers, Hillen, Blaine, and David Moore; and sister, Danie Short. We will all deeply miss her, but our loss is Heaven’s gain. She will be waiting for us there, so don’t disappoint her. She was the best.

Funeral service was held November 30, 2011, at Boring- Sheridan Schoedinger Funeral Home, Thornville, with Pastor Ray Etterling officiating. Burial followed at Fairmount Cemetery. Online condolences can be made at www.boringsheridanfuneralhomes.com
