Marcella (Marcy) Emery, 88, from Parma, Idaho went home to be with Jesus on January 18, 2018, surrounded by her family in Boise. Marcy was born on January 10, 1930, at home in Waukee, Iowa to Raymond and Bessie Flinn. It was a freezing winter day, so they wrapped her in blankets, put her in a dresser drawer and set her by the stove to keep her warm. She grew up in Adel, Iowa with two brothers and four sisters. She graduated from Adel High School in 1947. Marcy married Lou Emery on May 15, 1949, in Adel, Iowa. They moved to Boise, then to Parma in 1962 where she worked alongside Lou in their insurance and real estate business, Emery Real Estate. The joys of her life were her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many wonderful friends. She is survived by her children, Gerry (Steve) Case, Marcy (Dave) Paul, Kevin (Jill) Emery, and Lucy Kobusingye; nine grandchildren, Angie (Matt) Perkins, Nick (Lori) Sarich, Matt Sarich, Joshua (Rachel) Paul, Cecelia (Dan) Oxford, Craig Emery, Jake (Christa) Emery, Vali Emery, Will Ngabirano, and eleven great-grandchildren. Marcy is also survived by two sisters, Irene Wilcox of Madrid, Iowa and Alice (Russell) Hoffman of Perry, Iowa. She is preceded in death by her husband, Lou Emery; a stillborn son, Michael Duane, and son, Craig (Vietnam, 1970).
