CRIDERSVILLE, OH. - Emma Evelyn Aguinaldo, age 96, died Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2007, at Cridersville, Ohio.

She was born July 10, 1911, at Atwood, Kansas, the daughter of the late Clayton Albert and Mamie Ruth (Egelston) Martin.

Emma grew up at McDonald, KS, where she graduated from McDonald High School in 1931.

She began teaching in a one room schoolhouse for several years to earn money to go to college. One of her duties in the early years was to come to school early and start the stove and warm the building in winter before the students arrived.

She was courageous as she traveled by herself on a long sea voyage to the Philippines where she married Richard Aguinaldo on June 12, 1938.

When World War II broke out she had to leave their home while he remained to fight. She had no contact with him for two years after he was captured, but told everyone that she would know if he was not coming home and she never lost her faith that he would return to her, which he did.

Emma continued her education and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from College at Greeley, CO, and her Master's degree from the University of Kentucky at Richmond.

Richard and Emma came to Lebanon, NE, in 1960. Emma taught school in several communities and also privately taught piano and organ to many students. She was the church organist at the Lebanon Presbyterian Church for many years and also served as the city mayor of Lebanon.

Emma was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; three sisters, Hazel Clayton Schuyler and her husband, Dean, Lillie Carleton and her husband, Walt and an infant sister, Rachel Martin.

Emma is survived by nieces, Chery White and husband, William of Frederick, MD, Connie Nelson and husband, Robert of Lima, OH, Carla Carleton of East Lansing, MI, and Cynthia S. Cooke and husband, William of Earlysville, VA; and nephews, Randall I. Schuyler and wife, LaVerne of Lancaster, VA, Greggory C. Schuyler and wife, Connie of Ballston Lake, NY, and Spencer H. Schuyler and wife, Yulia of Greenbackville, FL.

Graveside interment will be Jan. 11, 2008, at the Lebanon Cemetery in Lebanon, Nebraska, with Keith Theovald officiating.
