Loving mother to Michael Williams and his wife, Lynne, and Mari Ellen Williams and her partner Michael Facchini. Adored Nana to Christopher Williams, Craig Williams and his wife Jenna.

Emma was born in New Bedford, daughter to Joseph and Maria Florindo. She grew up in Wareham and lived most of her beautiful life in Carver surrounded by all her family.
Emma worked in the Carver Schools Cafeteria for 31 years and was well known to many as the lunch lady. She also took great pride working with the family cranberry and sawmill business. During her time, she gladly volunteered with the Heart Association, Carver Firefighter’s Women’s Auxiliary, Cub Scouts, Sunday School, Carver Old Home Day and Tobey Hospital.
Emma was an avid New England sports fan, especially football, as was a cheerleader in Wareham High School, where she graduated from in 1957. She was so very proud when her grandsons played sports in school as she tried to attend all the games and could be heard from afar routing them on. Emma enjoyed watching and traveling to Nascar races with her husband, family and friends.
Emma’s passion was working in her vegetable garden, which sadly she was unable to start this year. She was an amazing cook and always loved feeding anyone who entered her home, especially her great grandchildren.
