Emily Stone Graves 1952 - 2014

Murphys, CA...Emily Stone Graves departed this life on January 19, 2014, to join her loved ones in heaven. She was born July 24th, 1952 to James and Marguerite Stone of Redwood City, CA. As a child Emily lived with her parents and 7 siblings throughout Northern California. Emily had a love and passion for horses that started at a young age and endured throughout her life. Emily taught many children and adults to ride, and excelled herself in the art of English Riding, Dressage, and Jumping. Emily was “magic” with horses and her students, and to everyone, her love zest for life and boundless energy will always be remembered. She also proudly graduated from Baker College in 1999 with an Associate Degree in Business....

Emily lived most of her adult life in Michigan and a few years in Missouri. She was overjoyed to “come home” to her beloved California for the past 2 years and finally resided in Murphys, CA.

Emily is survived by the love of her life, her husband Dennis. Also her children David of Port Huron, MI and Kristi of Ann Arbor, MI, Step children Jennifer of Port Huron, MI and Daniel of Birmingham, MI and Denise of Brant, MI. She leaves 12 grandchildren, not the least being her special Eli. She leaves many nieces and nephews as well as special friends and neighbors throughout her life. She is also survived by siblings Carl of Redding, CA Billie of Aurora, MO, Janet of Glen Heights, TX and Frank of Dorrington, CA. She is preceded in death by her parents and sister and brothers: Midge, Jimmy, and John.

Emily was a loving and devoted Christian from her childhood to adulthood, being baptized in Lake Huron, MI and living out her faith as an example to others. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8- love is patient, love is kind, it always protects, always trusts, always hopes. Love never fails.

Cremation has taken place and a graveside services will be held Saturday February 1, at 11:30 a.m. at Altaville Protestant Cemetery, Angels Camp, CA

She blessed our lives, even for just a short time. Now she is home with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

It was sad & unexpected news to hear of Emily's passing. I got to know her @Verona Schools (Missouri) where Dennis taught & she substituted on occasion. What a vibrant, educated and hilarious woman! Emily had such positive energy; she literally brightened every room & gathering she attended. Her obituary is an uplifting story of a life well lived and I feel blessed to have known her. To her family, especially my friend Dennis, know that you are in my heart & soul at this sad time. Deb Knotts

Emily was a beautiful, vibrant woman, who from the day I met her would always recognize and approach me when she would see me in public and the store where I worked. She had a very special way of making me and so many others feel important and truly, loved! She started a bible study group: "The BS (bible study) sisters", which is still active today, up here in MI. We love you Emily. Emily was a dear friend and I will miss her very much!!! God Bless you Dennis.
