5 Guestbook Entries for Emily C. Vosburgh

  1. I was delighted to meet Emily to whom I delivered library books to as a volunteer for the Fairfield Public Library. Despite her advancing age, Emily was vibrant, smart, interesting and very engaged in the world. She was an ardent reader and was always willing to share a few interesting tidbits from her latest reads with me. She certainly lived life to the fullest. My sincere condolences to her family on her passing. I am sure she left you many, many fond memories to share.

  2. It was my pleasure and privilege to have cared for Mrs. Vosburgh during her time spent at The Carolton Hospital. She had a beautiful smile and a devilish sense of humor. May she know everlasting peace and may Heaven never run out of ice cream.
