Our beloved mother, grandmother and sister, May Fillerup Emmett, 80, passed away September 8, 2017 in Lovell, WY.  May was born February 9, 1937, in Lovell, the third daughter of Marvan Lane and Loraine Eleanor Moore Fillerup.

May met the love of her life, Norald Silas Emmett of Lovell, in Rawlins, where she was teaching school in Sinclair and he was working for Western Electric.  They were married June 2, 1958, in the Logan, Utah, LDS Temple. She spent the early years of their marriage finishing her teaching degree and raising their young children (all boys at this time).  As with many Lovell residents, May helped with the Sugar Beet Campaign as well; she worked in the Tare-House at the Factory for many years in the 1970’s. After the addition of two little girls to the family, she was finally able to realize her dream of being a full-time school teacher in the Lovell Elementary School in January 1980 where she taught 1st & 2nd Grades for 14 ½ years until her retirement in May 1994.

May was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings including many years in Primary and as Relief Society Compassionate Service Leader. She touched the lives of many people through her service to others.  Two of her favorite callings were as an LDS stake missionary at the Lovell Stake Family History Center with her husband, Norald and serving in the Billings, MT LDS Temple with her eternal companion.

Her family kept her very busy during their younger years going to and from various activities and seeing the sites and visiting family in much of the western US.  May enjoyed crafting many beautiful handicrafts for her children and grandchildren which included a handmade Christmas Ornament every year for the past nearly 40 years.

May was preceded in death by her parents, her eternal husband Norald; as well as her older sister Loraine Fillerup Haggen, and her younger sister Ruth Fillerup Mangus.

May is survived by her children Max Paul (Linda) Emmett of Harvey, N.D; David Lane (Tracy) Emmett of Vero Beach, FL; Douglas Silas (Rosimar) Emmett of San Antonio, Texas; Susan Emmett (Steve) Banks of Alliance, NE; and Sandra Emmett (Erik) Hendershot of Lovell.  She is also survived by her sisters Luella Fillerup Schutt of Laurel, MT and Jane Fillerup (John) Welch of Mountain Home, ID as well as 18 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Funeral services are being held Friday, September 15, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center in Lovell.  A viewing will be held Thursday September 14, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Haskell Funeral Home.  There will also be a viewing Friday morning from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center.

The family expresses their thanks to friends and family for all of their kindness during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. The God of the Bible promises us a time when we will be reunited with our loved ones…Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow death forever, and the The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” and John 5:28: "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". God promises a future time when there will be no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! The former things have passed away.” My heartfelt condolences and prayers for family and friends.
