George and Emogene had five children, George Theron, Vonda, Woodrow Jay, Paula, and Isabel.
She and her husband of 58 years, George, have been on the Gospel Road, leading many people to the Lord, setting the captives free and bringing deliverance to those in need in Jesus’ name. She was an avid reader and worshipper. She loved to sing praises to her Savior and King. She was an encourager and was not afraid to tell you to get back to Jesus. She often encouraged her children to pray and let God take care of it. By trade a nurse, but as a fellow laborer for Jesus. she did more than healed people’s physical bodies when she introduced them to the master. She was a mom, sister, sister-in-law, auntie, grandma, great grandma, and spiritual mother to many. She loved to read about her Savior and was adamant as she learned about and shared natural healing techniques with others. She had a pure desire to help others be healed. She was an awesome cook and she cared for many over the years. When Mary Badmarriage went on to be with the Lord, Emogene and George became caregivers to George’s siblings at a young age. She was an advocate for education and the obedience to the Word of God. Making Heaven her home was what Emogene lived for and she looked forward to seeing her savior, Jesus.
