Emma Alice Sinex, 94, passed away Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021, at Baptist Health Floyd.

Emma was born in rural Paoli, Ind., to the late Emmanual and Deborah Smith, and grew up on the family farm, growing strawberries. She later worked in a nursing home for over 32 years in the laundry and linens department and felt a special love for her patients. Her sharp memory would aid her with helping the patients to find many lost items. Emma loved country music, especially Hank Williams Sr. and Patsy Cline.

Emma is survived by her daughter, Tina Nelson.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her siblings, Mae Stout, Mabel Andry, Velma Atkins, William Smith and Sylvia Seacat, and step-siblings, Eulah Froman and George Russell Loyd.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Market Street Chapel of Naville & Seabrook Funeral Homes (1119 E. Market St.). A funeral Mass will follow at 1 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church.
