Em was a pioneer in starting her own business, Accurate Office Service in the Plankinton Arcade in the 1940’s which was a prototype for office support outsourcing. Em was co-founder of Stan’s Fit for Your Feet (Stan’s Bootery) with her husband Stan on Milwaukee’s South Side on 27th and Oklahoma in 1950. Em had many talents. She was an artist, musician, great cook, lover of music and dancing, and a gracious hostess. She was hospitable, warm, and made friends wherever she went.
