Emily Elizabeth Earley (nee. Hottum)

Emily E. Earley was born September 5, 1921, to Thomas E. and Emma K. Mac Bride, and passed away at the age of 98, peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in Mays Landing, NJ, while residing in the loving care of family members.

Emily, “Peachy, or Sweets,” and her much preferred, “Nan,” was the matriarch of a loving family, an endless source of love and encouragement, a compassionate friend and, whenever social fun was possible, a happy consumer of Southern Comfort Manhattans (rocks on the side!) especially if music by Frank Sinatra or the “Rat Pack” was playing.

Emily is predeceased by her loving husband and dance partner of over 50 years, James E. Earley, with whom she raised three daughters together while residing in Philadelphia, PA. Emily was a Graduate of Kensington High School and worked many years in Philadelphia as a Legal Secretary for a private Law Firm, then as an Executive Secretary in the Steel Industry, and at the age of 65, retired from SmithKline, as an Executive Secretary in the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Emily’s outside interests included dancing, sewing, gardening, painting, reading, traveling, Theater, and an exceptional ability to bring others alongside to join her in fun. She organized neighbors into card clubs and enticed co-workers, family, and friends, to join her on Bus Trips and Cruise trips that she ran. She was active in her children’s school committees, in her Methodist Church, in the Order of the Eastern Star, Kadesh Chapter, and was a member of the “Red Hat” Society.

Once remarried she moved to Vero Beach, Florida, and joined her Community dance troupe. She participated in Fashion Shows to raise funds, Tap danced to entertain Nursing Home residents, and played the Kazoo when competing in talent shows. After a few years she was predeceased by her second husband, Joseph A. DeVito, with whom she enjoyed a beautiful waterfront home while in Florida and had traveled with internationally.

She loved Florida, the Sunshine, her dogs, and being together with family and friends. Emily was always very stylish and impeccably dressed, even while forcibly conforming her feet into her really “cute” shoes. Her eyes would sparkle at the very mention of going out – anywhere, and she especially enjoyed an opportunity to dine out, or spending a night on the town.

Emily is predeceased also by her third husband, George W. Hottum; by her Loving daughter, Linda D. Fenning (Steve); by her two brothers, George MacBride and Gordon Aschendorf; and by her sister, Dorothy P. McIntosh.
She is survived and lovingly remembered by her two daughters, Sandra Robinson (John) of Mays Landing, NJ and Joanne Silverberg (Joseph) of Sicklerville, NJ; by Grandsons: Larry, Tim, George, Chris, Jeff, and Joey; by Grand-daughters: Beth, Heather, and Danielle; by nine Great-grandsons, one Great- granddaughter, and many nieces and nephews.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all arrangements and burial are private under supervision of Boakes Funeral Home, Inc., Mays Landing, NJ.
