Emily V. Harshman

Our beautiful mom passed away at the age of 82 in the early morning hours of November 10, 2018. Emily was the youngest of seven children, born to Alva Curtis and Nellie Gertrude Harshman.

She married her best friend, Charles Norman Harshman, in 1956. They were introduced by a mutual friend, who thought it was a funny coincidence they had the same last name. She spent the majority of her career and life in Shelby Township, Michigan, working at the township municipality where she made many friends until she retired and moved to Saline, Michigan.
