Granny spent the first half of her life in Barbados where she married the late Aaron Sealy. She was employed by The Port of Bridgetown as a Domestic Aid.

After migrating to Boston, Mass Emiline continued her spiritual walk by joining the Church of the Holy Spirit of Mattapan where she remained a member of the Mothers Union Board. 

Along with the migration to Boston, Massachusetts in 1973 came a 15-year career Emiline made for herself as a Nutritional Aid at Mass General Hospital. After retiring in 1986, Granny spent her time traveling with family and friends. Barbados and Texas being her favorites.

After becoming an amputee in 2011 Granny spent her day socializing at the Rogerson Center of Roxbury. Yearly visits to her home, Barbados, also became a part of her routine. Granny was blessed to have spent time with her Great Great Grandchildren in her last days.
