Emma was confirmed at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church near Lyons in 1906. After her father's death, she worked at Emory Clements’ general store in Lyons in the fall of 1913. She followed her mother and sisters to Seattle Washington on 6 July 1917 along with sister Melinda. She worked at her brother-in-law Otto Kammeyer's grocery store in Youngstown, Washington, then as a comptometer operator for the Frederick & Nelson department store in Seattle. She went back to Burt County Nebraska in May 1919. In 1920 she was living with her brother Herman and working as a stenographer. She returned to Seattle in May 1921 and remained there until her marriage. She and Herman lived on the farm where he was born and raised two children there until they moved to Fremont. Emma was active in several church organizations, Extension Club, and served for the Red Cross. After Herman died, Emma continued to live in their home in Fremont, increasingly supported by her daughter Ruth, who lived in town. She kept a garden and played the piano quite well, even composing some of her own music.

Emma is buried in Fremont Memorial Cemetery, Section B, Lot 183, Grave 3.
