Emma was born on June 7, 1923 and passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 28, 2022. A big party was planned for her 100th birthday, but nothing like the party she experienced when she entered Heaven's gates. She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Howard W. Tyndall. She is survived by her daughter, Mary Tidwell (Jimmy) and son, Howard "Skip" Tyndall (Gail). She is survived by six grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

She was also known as "Big Emma", a nickname she earned as a child playing dominoes. Whenever she played the double six, she always announced it by saying "Here comes Big Emma". The name stuck, but it was not descriptive of her size.  But it certainly described her personality.  She had a big heart for those who were hurting, human or animal, or those that needed a friend. As a nurse, she loved ministering to injured servicemen  when they returned home from World War Two and also ministering to German POWs at their camp near her hometown of Ruston, Louisiana.

She loved her family, her Lord, and her church. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, and most of all being "Mamaw".

You will always be in our hearts because there you are still alive.
