Emma was a member of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Youngwood, PA where she lived for many years with her husband of 60 years Joseph A. Malis. The couple moved later in life to Holland and become members of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church. She loved quilting, gardening, and was a great cook.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Joseph; siblings, Michael Hegedus, George Hegedus, Carolyn Szabo, and Jerome Hegedus.

She is survived by her son, Joseph A. (Barbara) Malis Jr., of Holland; daughter, Christine (Bruce) Beaufort, of Erie, PA; grandchildren, Joseph (Stephanie) Malis III, Rebecca (J. Galen) Stevens, Owen Beaufort, Adam Beaufort, great-grandchildren, Charles J. Malis, Eleanor E. Malis, and Jacqueline B. Stevens, along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A private family graveside will take place at Westmoreland County Memorial Park in Greensburg, PA at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church.
