Our beloved wife and mother, Emma Olive (Greve) Bisch passed away in Sacramento, CA on January 10, 2022, at 93 years of age. Emma was born November 16, 1928, to Henry and Olive Greve in Worthington, MN. Emma attended rural county schools and graduated from Worthington High School in 1947. On March 10, 1949, Emma married her high school sweetheart, Everett H. Bisch. She and Everett enjoyed almost 73 years of marriage while raising their three children. One of Emma’s unusual “accomplishments” was giving birth to her two daughters and son on the same day in May but in different years! As Everett’s career advanced, they moved west by way of Iowa and Colorado, finally settling in Northern California - always making lifelong friends along the way. Everett was fortunate to retire at an early age and he and Emma enjoyed almost 25 years traveling the country in their 5th-wheel RV. They created wonderful memories for their grandchildren by taking them along on extended camping trips from coast to coast. Emma will be remembered by all who met her as a warm, caring and engaging person. She loved her family first and foremost, and devoted her life to being “Mom” and “Nana.” She enjoyed hosting gatherings for family and friends, playing bridge with the ladies, babysitting her grandkids and trying new recipes. She had a well deserved reputation as an excellent hostess and cook and many of her recipes were featured in Dorthy Rickers’ long running Mixing & Musing newspaper column in The Daily Globe. She is survived by her husband Everett Bisch; her three children: Kristine (Mike) Metzler, Peggy (Rich) Taricco and Scott (Linda) Bisch; her five grandchildren and four great grandchildren; her sister Arlene “Skeeter” Doeden of Worthington, her brother Henry (Barbara) Greve of Worthington, her sister Carmen (Don) Parker of Kalispell, MT and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Harry and infant brother Melvin. There will be a private interment for Emma at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, CA.
