Emily was born March 13, 1932 in Coal County, Okla., to Andrew and Margaret Huff. Emily’s family moved from Alderson, Okla., to Laton, Calif., to work on the local farms.

On the 4th day of April 1981 A.D., Emily married Andrew J. Fochetti Jr. at the Chapel of the Bells located at South Lake Tahoe, Calif., and went on to establish a new home in Hanford. Emily and Andrew moved to Tehachapi, Calif., in 1987 where Emily worked for the Tehachapi Hospital as a home care nurse. Emily retired in 1995 and then moved into their newly built custom dream home in beautiful Oak Knolls, Calif.
