Emily Rose

June 26, 1996 — July 24, 2020

Bladenboro

Emily Rose, 24, of Bladenboro, passed away on Friday, July 24, 2020. Emily leaves behind her mother, Brenda Mills; maternal grandparents: Jimmy and Vonda Tatum; two aunts: Teresa Priest and husband Timmie of Bladenboro, Cindy Rankin and husband Dwayne of Indiana, formerly of Bladenboro; uncle, Jimmy James Tatum of Bladenboro; many close cousins and more extended family that she loved dearly.

Emily was such a fighter and remained extraordinarily strong during her sickness. She adored her family, especially her mother. Emily was a quiet yet talented young lady. She enjoyed playing piano, baking, drawing and sketching all kinds of things including an UNC emblem for her cousin Jon’s birthday party. She loved to make and dress up in different costumes such as Anna from Frozen for birthday parties. She was always looking up things on the internet and YouTube; sometimes making skits of her and her cousins. She adored her furry companions, Nicki the cat and her bird, Petro. Emily’s sweet smile and crafty spirit will be remembered forever.
