Celebration of Life for Emma Doty

Last Sunday we announced the sad news that Emma Doty, daughter of Wendy Esquibel and Tonya Doty, passed away at the young age of 9 years and 11 months. In spite of her disabilities, Emma was a bright light that shone brightest when surrounded by her family, her caregivers, her friends, and others who loved her.

In celebration of that light, all are invited to join us in celebrating sweet Emma Doty’s life this Saturday, August 24 at 11:30 am. Rev Jody Topping, Lead Pastor at Song of Life United Methodist Church will officiate this Celebration Service, which will be held at Central Christian Church, 22505 E. Ocotillo Road in Queen Creek. The family will also host an Open House following the service at their home, located at 41787 N. Coyote Rd, San Tan Valley, 85140. Please wear bright colors and crazy socks in memory of Emma. Help us fill this church with everyone who was touched by Emma’s larger-than-life spirit!

In lieu of flowers or other expressions of sympathy, the family asks that Memorial Gifts be given to the Emma Doty Memorial Fund at Song of Life United Methodist Church, 20164 S. Sossaman Rd., Queen Creek, 85142. Gifts may also be made by going through our website at songoflifeumc.org and clicking on the “Give” link. (Be sure to change the fund from “General” to “Emma Doty Memorial Fund” by clicking on the down-arrow.)

We wish to thank Central Christian Church, Queen Creek for hosting this Celebration of Life Service. Their larger seating capacity will be a blessing to all who wish to attend and celebrate Emma’s life.
