Emma Marie Josephine Harviel, a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, aunt, niece, and friend, has left us all with heavy hearts on January 14, 2024. Born on November 3, 2008, in Anderson, Indiana, Emma's gentle soul and loving nature touched the lives of many.

From a young age, Emma possessed a remarkable warmth that welcomed everyone she encountered with open arms. She had a natural ability to make others feel heard and cared for. Her heart was particularly inclined towards animals, demonstrating a major soft spot for these innocent creatures who found solace in her unconditional love.

During her educational journey, Emma actively participated in her school's Future Farmers of America (FFA) program. It was through this organization that she further honed her compassion for animals. One of her proudest achievements within FFA was securing 2nd place at the Coryell County Youth Fair for showcasing her beloved rabbit Trixie. Additionally, Emma served as a Class Officer with a position in public relations. Her dedication and leadership skills were truly inspiring.

Academically inclined but never one to boast about it, Emma exemplified the mantra "actions speak louder than words." Her quiet and observant demeanor allowed her to understand when someone needed help and offer guidance in the most compassionate way possible. Whether lending an empathetic ear or providing thoughtful advice, Emma always knew just what to say to uplift those around her.

Outside of school hours, Emma embraced the virtual world of gaming on her computer as an escape from reality. Immersed in the stories she played out online, she found joy and solace from the challenges of everyday life. Furthermore, she often ventured into pet stores during her free time, envisioning the possibility of adding another cherished animal companion to her life.

Emma's dedication to making a positive impact extended beyond animals alone; she volunteered with the Salvation Army during this past Christmas season. Her involvement in ringing the bell for charitable donations showcased her genuine desire to bring joy and hope to those who needed it most. Emma's selflessness was truly remarkable and leaves a lasting legacy.

Emma Marie Josephine Harviel's spirit will be carried on through the love and memories she shared with her surviving family members and friends, who meant the world to her. She leaves behind her loving mother, Amy Harviel; her supportive sister, Abby Guerra; brother-in-law Alexander Guerra; sister Ella Harviel; brother Oliver Harviel; beloved grandpa/opa Leonard Harviel; loving grandma/oma Michaela Harviel; caring pawpaw Steven Dach; dear grandma Heike Harviel; devoted aunt Catherine Harviel (Kitty) and aunt Lisa Davis; uncle Nick Davis; sweet cousins Renleigh, Julianna, Rowan, and Savannah Davis. In addition to her family, Emma is also survived by cherished nephew Aizen Guerra, great grandmother Maureen Harviel, God parents Brittany and Matt Buster, and best friend Emmalee.

Emma's pets held a special place in her heart as well. Her dog Penny, her hamster Charlie, and her rabbit Trixie were not just animals but treasured companions who brought immense joy into Emma's life. Their presence provided comfort during any challenging times she faced.

Emma Marie Josephine Harviel will forever be remembered as a kind, caring individual who left an indelible impact on all those fortunate enough to have known her. May we carry forward her spirit of love, compassion, and unwavering kindness as we honor her memory. Although the world feels a little dimmer without Emma's presence, let us find solace in the knowledge that her beautiful soul has found eternal peace. Rest in peace, dear Emma.
