My Great Grandmother On My Mothers Side
When Emma got older, in her 20's, she had met a man named Richard. Over the years, Emma and Richard dated and dated until they were on the road to marriage. Richard and Emma were married on December 28, 1922 in Hingham, Massachusetts.
Emma Barba was now the new Emma Venti. Richard and Emma had a total of three children : Florence, Donald, and Richard. Sadly, Donald died when he was an infant at around one year old.
Emma Venti had then started to work at the local woman's club, and she had also worked at the election center where she would help count votes on any subject that was going on during that time period.

HER FINAL YEARS
Emma's other child Florence had passed away later on in her lifetime from cancer.
Emma Venti had then retired out of her own home, and into a Nursing Home in Tigard, Oregon. Emma lived an amazing and eventful life. Many people loved her sweet, and loving self, and were sad to see her go.
Emma Barba Venti passed away on August 4, 1998 in her nursing home in Tigard, Oregon from dementia, and old age.
I am so blessed that Emma was on this Earth for a long period of time. If she was never born, I wouldn't be here today.
