Surprise party for Grandma Emmie

Grandma Emmie

   More than thirty families held a surprise retirement party on May 2 for Emilene Carlson. For the past 20 years, Grandma Emmie, as she is known to many children, has provided home childcare to over 80 children in the Woodinville area. At the party, Emmie, the children, many now grown, and their families shared memories of wheelbarrow and tractor rides provided by Emmie's husband, Roy; home cooking; birthday parties; games, stories, and walks.
