Emma was born in Saginaw on May 30, 1945, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jesus and Angelita (Ramos) Huizar. Emma worked as a Machine Operator for Eaton Grede Foundry until her retirement. She was a handywoman and very independent and took care of most things around her home. Emma loved to travel and just some of her favorite places included Texas to visit her family, Hawaii, and Jamaica. She was known as the life of the party and loved having get-togethers with her family. Listening to Mexican music, dancing, and just having a good time is what she enjoyed most. Emma enjoyed the casino and was a regular at Soaring Eagle Casino. She also enjoyed cooking and baking but was well known for the amazing candy she made. Working in her garden with her flowers and a few vegetables was a serene place for her to enjoy. Emma was the “mom” to her siblings and taught them how to hunt and fish and ride the minibike, among other things. She loved her family and took great care of them. In her free time, Emma enjoyed crocheting blankets and making crafts. She will be greatly missed.
Left to cherish Emma's memory are her siblings: Daniel Huizar, Vera Aguirre, Robert and wife, Nora Huizar, Nancy and husband, Tom McTaggart, John and wife, Connie Huizar, Jessie Donna Huizar, Darren Huizar, many nieces, and nephews, who she loved very much as well as other relatives and friends.
Emma was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers: William Ben Huizar, Henry Huizar; sister: Lena Huizar; and her brother-in-law, Julian Aguirre.
