Emily Carfioli of Rancho Santa Margarita passed away on Saturday, September 12, 2020

She was born on January 10, 1932 in Chester, PA to the late Robert and Emilie Polley. Emily resided in Philadelphia and Norwood, PA and Mount Laurel, NJ with her beloved husband Frank of 64 years. Frank preceded her in death in 2017.

She relocated to Southern California in 2018 to be near her family.

Emily worked as an Office Manager for many years before moving to New Jersey. She was very active in her community while doing charity work for Deborah Hospital and donating generously to a wide number of her favorite charities. Emily enjoyed line dancing and playing cards with her many friends.

She and Frank loved to travel throughout the US but their favorite trips were the ones they spent with their family on the West Coast. Emily was a loving and kind wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

Emily is survived by her children Frank Carfioli (Carol), Lee Carfioli (Bill Potter); grandchildren Kristen Carfioli, Michael Carfioli, Lauren Bergman (Adam), Alexandra Carfioli; great grandchildren Isabel and Luca Bergman.

  1. It is with deep sadness I offer my heartfelt condolance. I have many fond, indelible memories of Emily’s kindness, warmth and endearing sense of humor. I so enjoyed my visits with Frank and Emily in Norwood and then Mount Laurel; laughing and talking, usually over one of Emily’s delicious meals. The years passed so quickly. Emily’s light will never dim for those of us who knew and loved her. The same for her wonderful husband, Frank. May the joy and love Emily gave so abundantly be what we all remember most. I will always miss her smile. Love and peace to you. Tony

    Frank, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember seeing your mom at your Dad’s funeral and she told me not to call her Mrs.Carfioli, call me Emily. It was great that you got to spend the last couple of years together in California. Thoughts and prayers to you and the family.

  3. Rest in peace our dear Emily. We love you and will miss you. You are with your honey now.
    Our love always,
    Charlie & Patti
