Emma Mae East, age 82, of Temple passed from this life during the mid-morning hours of Sunday, September 8, 2019 at her home. Born in Junction, Texas on the 14th day of May 1937 she was the daughter of Fred Martin and Nettie Gamel.

Emma married Albert Benny East in Stanton, Texas on July 7, 1951. The newly wed couple would walk hand-in-hand through life building a family and enjoying each other’s company until Albert’s passing. Emma was a collector of Native American memorabilia and artifacts. She loved anything to do with “the old west” including watching western movies, especially Hopalong Cassidy who was her favorite. She loved to be in the kitchen cooking for her family and friends and loved Coca-Cola and everything that had to do with Coke. Emma was a member of the Golinda Baptist Church and had been a resident of Falls County for many years before moving to Temple 3 years ago.

She is preceded in death by her husband Albert, 1 son Benny East, 1 grandson Randy Bender, her parents Fred and Nettie as well as 8 of her siblings.
