Who was Betty Emmerson MBE and what was her cause of death? died at the age of 92

Betty Emmerson MBE, a community icon, died at the age of 92. She has been associated with the Royal British Legion for almost 60 years.

She received the honor in 2011 as part of the Queen’s New Year honors list, when she was appointed an MBE.

Betty Emmerson was born on March 10, 1930, in the beach resort of Britain, as the fifth of six children of Georgina Arnold.

Little information about her personal life has been made public, making it extremely difficult to learn about her. We are unable to provide any detailed information on her early years because we do not know the names of her father or mother, as well as her siblings.

Betty has four children, nine grandchildren, and  7 great-grandchildren after marrying John Emmerson in 1951. She was well-known among her friends and family for her cake-decorating abilities, having created over 2,000 cakes for friends, families, and communities.

She passed away at Bilney Hall Care Home in Dereham on May 4th. St Nicholas Church hosted her funeral.
