Emma Louise (Elliott) Pijoan, lovingly referred to as “Miss Emmy,” passed away at her home in Wolfeboro, NH surrounded by family on Friday, March 10, 2023, at the age of 84.
Emmy was born on May 15, 1938 to parents Nathan “Jack” Elliott and Ethel Grund Elliott of Fullerton, Maryland. Emmy graduated from Catonsville High School in Catonsville, Maryland in 1956. It was in the state of Maryland Emmy met her husband, Peter Pijoan, and they were married in Baltimore in 1959. Their marriage lasted 64 years.
Emmy had a passion and special place in her heart for children. Her greatest work was being a Sunday School teacher, caregiver, and teacher’s aide. Emmy had three biological children, Michael Pijoan, Timothy Pijoan, and Lisa Pijoan Goodwin; she also adopted three children, James Anthony Pijoan, John Robbins, and Nicole Pijoan Morales. Her children and her grandchildren, Matthew Pijoan, Melissa Pijoan, Alex Pijoan, Brittney Austin, Haley Joy Goodwin, Nyre Warren, Antonio Morales, Kiara Morales, Fabian Morales and new great grandchild Juniper Austin were her pride and joy. Emmy also took in neighborhood children, several foreign exchange students and almost any soul who needed a mother’s touch, feeding them and caring for their needs. Emmy’s love also extended to animals and creatures of the Earth who needed a safe place to live.
Emmy loved the Lord and everything He created, from every person, to every bumble bee, deer, rock, ladybug, tree, and flower. She loved nature and being in her garden almost as much as she loved going to church. Anyone who came across Emmy knew she was the most loving, tender, and kind soul. Always
singing showtunes and dancing her way through the kitchen, her presence will be missed by all who knew her.
A celebration of life will be held 9:00amon Saturday, May 13, at First Congregational Church of Ossipee, NH. It is requested attendees where pinks, purples, greens, blues, or yellows, definitely not black, as black was Emmy’s least favorite color. In lieu of flowers, Emmy’s family is asking for donations to be made out to the Salvation Army in her memory.
