Obituary

Emogene, 81, of Port Orange, Florida, passed peacefully in her sleep June 9, 2015, at 6:18 am. She was born October 15, 1933, in Gallipolis, OH, to Virgil and Josephine Holley. Emogene (Jean) was married over 60 years to her childhood love and best friend, James M. McCown. They celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary in April with their daughters. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, doting grandmother and a friend to all. She never met a stranger; her warmth and heart drew people to her like a magnet. Throughout her life, Emogene won the hearts and trust of all who knew her. Her gift of joy and laughter will never be forgotten. She is our Angel that lived, laughed and loved.

Myers, FL; three loving grandsons William Eppler, Lyle Shipton and Neal (Kelsey) Shipton; sister Virginia Cantu, Orange City, FL; James (Wanda) Holley, Charleston W.VA, Kenneth Holley, Gallipolis, OH; and several neices and nephews. Emogene was preceded in death by her sister JoAnn Anderson, Charleston, W.V A. A memorial service will be held at Halifax Health Hospice Port Orange Care Center, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange on June 27 at 2 pm. Memorial donations may be made in her name to the American Cancer Society.

    Grandma,

    It's still hard to believe you're gone. I miss our weekly phone conversations and telling you about how things in my life are going. Every time I go to Florida I'll think about you. You showed endless patience, compassion, care, and love for your grandchildren. You were a wonderful woman and an especially wonderful grandmother. I'll miss you dearly. I love you Grandma!

    Although we only knew you for a short time you brought many of smiles and wonderful memories to our lives. You were so sweet, loving and welcoming. L and I couldn't have been more blessed to have been given the chance to meet you. I will forever remember your sweet smile, the ocean, birthday celebration and our shopping trips together. You were a loving mother, positive influence on others and grandmother. We love you and will forever cherish our time we had with you!
