Wife of Otto Koehler, owner and operator of the San Antonio Brewing Association later known as the Pearl Brewery. After Otto's death in 1914, Emma took control of Otto's extensive business and real estate holdings. She deeded what is now known as Koehler Park to the citizens of San Antonio, Texas on December 24, 1914. The park is now 100 years old.
She saw the brewery through prohibition and with help from B. B. McGimsey, kept the doors open selling mostly dairy products.
