86 Years Old
Born November 27, 1923, Died October 19, 2010
Emma Nagle was born near Krydor, Saskatchewan and was raised along with 5 sisters, and 6 brothers on a farm where they raised wheat. Emma’s parents spoke fluent Ukrainian, but spoke very little English.
At 18 she left the family farm to do War Work in Toronto and Montreal. Some time after the War she joined her sister Jean in Bermuda, and then in Twenty Nine Palms, California where she met her husband Michael Francis Nagle. They were married in 1956 and enjoyed 45 years together before his passing on August 17, 2001.
Emma and Mike raised two children, Tim and Chelle, and eventually settled in Dana Point, California in 1968. Emma loved her family, nature, the ocean, flowers, treasure hunting, fishing, slot machines, traveling, Ukrainian music, walking or sledding in the snow; and although she didn’t practice it often, she was an incredible artist. Family gatherings were a particular joy to her – she was rarely happier than with a crowded dinner table.
She had the good fortune of a peaceful passing in her own home of nearly 40 years. She will be dearly missed, and forever loved.
Her Surviving Family includes her sisters Jean Pollard and Olga Lasiuk, her daughter Chelle Nagle of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and her son and daughter in law Tim and Stephenie Nagle of Madison, Wisconsin
