Emma is survived by her husband, John Stokley Jr.; son, John Stokley III; daughter, Meredith Stokley; and others she profoundly affected.
Services will be private for family and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Tidewell Hospice, 1144 Veronica St., Port Charlotte, FL 33952.
