Emily Mary (Levitsky) Cressman born September 9, 1942 age 78, moved on from this life to her next adventure on May 12, 2020 at Belle Haven Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center of Quakertown.

She met her future husband Roger shortly after, married and raised two children, Wendy and Roger Jr. Though they moved to different areas around Quakertown for the first few years they finally settled into their final home just outside of Quakertown along South Old Bethlehem Pike in 1976. Throughout her life Emily worked at various jobs in local factories and in retail but her true passion and enjoyment came from working in childcare for over forty years. When she wasn’t working with young children she was tending her vegetable garden, playing with her cats, listening to her favorite music or planning her next fishing trip to Canada which she and her husband enjoyed for 20 plus years. She was a devout Catholic and loved her church, St. Isidore’s very much. She is survived by her daughter Wendy Ann and her husband William W. Kling from Quakertown, Pa, and her son Roger S.
