Emilia Macri Drum was born Oct. 11, 1943, and passed away July 4, 2010.

Emilia is one of God's very best and loved children. Emilia was a dedicated kindergarten teacher for 20-plus years, mother of two boys and retired after her beloved youngest son, Tony, died following a diving accident. This event may have hastened Emilia's illness, but none of us will ever really know. When she buried Tony, she buried a piece of her heart. She will join him now so there is joy in this reunion.

Emilia was a loving godsend to us all! In this photo, she was filled with life, vigor, fun, love and determination. There are many other photos of vitality, but this is a classic.

She will be buried at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville, adjacent to her youngest son, Tony. Emilia was always a gracious host and gourmet cook; a beautiful woman who was the focal of teaching, caring, cooking gardening, artistic endeavors, Italian gatherings and any soft engagement involving women.

She had a large Seattle Italian family including her deceased parents, Domenico Macri (Papa) and mother Rose. She is survived by her beloved husband Edward Drum, brother Domenico (Mico and wife, Janet Macri), including: eldest son, Joe Broome and family; sister, Deana Bailey and family; eldest brother, Joe Macri and family. Other connected relatives include MeMa and Papa Broome of South Carolina and Gordon Porchella from Bremerton.

God blessed us with this good woman! She was a vital, loving and alive woman who taught many children! There were some very important friends who cared for her including: Christina Bowen and Maxene Varga who were critically important people in her care when such strengths were herculean. This was during a protracted period when being there, means everything! God will bless these women and the caregivers as well as those at Mt. Adams of Fidalgo Care Center.

Services were held July 9 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Coupeville with graveside committal at Sunnyside Cemetery. A reception followed at St. Mary's Catholic Church.

Emilia always rode with angels, as she was a peacekeeper and a soul of grace. God is lucky to have her near as she will likely take educational charge of the children that have been lost and of course there is the kitchen. Beware, she will probably redecorate the place in an Italian motif.

If you feel a need to donate in her name and in lieu of flowers feel free to consider donations to Navy Relief or the Care Fund at Christ the King Church 814 28th St. in Anacortes.

Eternal Father strong to save, Guard the Wives we've loved and lost.
When passed to sea and sky above, guide her spirit to your embrace.
Restore her spirit, her heart, freed alas from life's bondage yoke.
Eternal Father, strong to save ... protect the Navy wives we have loved!
Guide her softly without suffer upon request with chit, of special favor.
Restore her spirit, her heart, to love in your sea of heavenly love.
