Emma Pederson

Emma Pederson died peacefully in her sleep Wednesday, July 2, 2003.  The
Funeral will be held at 1:30 PM on Tuesday July 8 at Mount Olive Lutheran
Church, Second Street and Omaha Avenue in Norfolk, Nebraska.  She was 97 years
old and had been living at the Wausa Care Center the past few years.  Emma was
a long time member of Region 21 and the Elkhorn Valley Iris Society and until
her later years seldom missed a National or Regional Meeting.  Through the
years, her traveling companions changed but she had most often traveled with
Larry Harder.  Emma was equally active in the Daylily Societies and was
instrumental in establishing Region 1 and a Charter Member of The Nebraska
Daylily Society.  In the City of Norfolk, where she lived after retiring with
her husband "Pete" from the farm, she was known as the 'Flower Lady' and there
have been several newspaper articles  telling about her lovely garden.  Every
year for her Church's bazaar, she donated many pots of ivy and her other house
plants that she had propagated.  Although Emma did sell a few of her
"increases", she mostly shared everything with everybody who happened by to
say hello and to admire her abundant flowers.  Emma was a good friend and I
shall miss her deeply.  Mary Ferguson
