Emily G. London, 83 of West Chester, Pennsylvania, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, February 04, 2020 at Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital.
Born September 01, 1936 in West Chester, PA she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Margaret Jones, and widow of the late Frederick W. London with whom she shared 56 years of marriage.
Over the years, Emily worked at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals as a Production Quality Control Inspector, Grocery Store Products, Nachman’s and as a nursing assistant at Friends Hall and West Chester Arms nursing homes. She was a stay-at-home mom when her children were young and was devoted to their school activities.
Emily enjoyed word search and jigsaw puzzles, latch hook, televised and live gospel programs, listening to gospel music, and reading the Bible. An avid TV soap fan, she watched them all; “Young and the Restless”, “As the World Turns”, “Search for Tomorrow” and “General Hospital.” Emily also loved to watch re-runs of “Law and Order.” Her favorite music artist was Aretha Franklin. Her favorite food was cabbage, egg custard pie and she loved a steaming hot cup of tea.
Her crowning joy in life was her grandchildren.
