   Emma Jean (Junek) Piwonka, 87, of Blessing, passed away June 27, 2020.

   In 1950 she graduated from Wharton County Junior College as an LVN. 
   On July 21, 1951, she married Clarence “Red” Piwonka, Sr. and together they raised ten children. 
   Emma spent her married years helping Red manage their grocery store and farming operations in Blessing, all while taking care of a house full of children.  
   When Red passed away in 1985, she was able to keep the farm going while stepping into the role of loving grandmother. 
   She was always ready to whip up a meal or welcome another addition to her big family.
