Two days before her passing, Emily was preparing to take her family to Lagoon Amusement Park. She worked hard to bless her children with a joyful childhood and this day was no different. Before they left, Emily went to be adjusted by her chiropractor. Immediately after, she was driven to the ER and, after suffering a stroke, was life flighted to the McKay-Dee Medical Center to be treated by a neurologist. This chain of events sparked a movement of prayer and fasting from family, friends and even strangers that has continued, even until now. Her husband and soulmate, Russell Wall, and her beloved sister, Shae, stayed by her side through the agonizing hours and nights in the hospital. Emily lost consciousness early in the morning on Monday, May 3rd and, after her children, parents, and family said goodbye, was pronounced dead.
Emily was a woman of great faith who loved God and served everyone she met. Because of her selfless decision to be an organ donor, she has continued her legacy of service even in death.
Emily did not carry life insurance. She was young and dreamed of growing old with her husband.
We would like to support Russell Wall and five children; Lexi (14 years old), Preston (10 years old), Carter (8 years old), Ivy (4 years old), and Chloe (2 years old) through this unimaginable time.
The morning before she was admitted to the hospital, Emily told Russell she wanted their motto to be "No Family Member Left Behind".
We have set a goal of $32,000 to aide in costs relating to medical care, funeral arrangements, urgent home repairs, and immediate needs of the family.
To all who have given and to those who have served, we thank you for loving and honoring our sweet Em.
