Emery Shepard Obituary - Hill Funeral Home


A family service will be held privately.  Then he will be laid to rest at Northlawn Memory Gardens.

Emery was the kindest neighbor I’ve ever had. Always waving when going down the street and would stop to talk anytime he was out and about. Our family will miss him dearly. His heart was with Lord and that’s who he is with today. Our sympathies are with his family.
