There are many memories of Emelia but one that a lot of people might identify with were her Grandma Thielbar Doughnuts which she made for many friends year after year. Until the end they were "her own special recipe" and only shared with her closest friends and relatives or in what she called an emergency. One friend used to say that if they were not her recipe they were not real doughnuts. My sympathy to all the family. Rita
