Emma Treadway Obituary, Death – According to a statement sent by Monroe Public Schools on Wednesday morning, a high school senior who had just graduated from Monroe, Michigan’s school system had died the previous morning in an automobile accident. Emma Treadway had just turned 18 years old in December and had recently begun working immediately after finishing all of the requirements necessary to graduate from Orchard Center High School.
She had been planning to walk across the stage during her graduation in June. According to a GoFundMe campaign that was established to assist Treadway’s family, the young woman and her siblings were raised by their grandparents because neither of Treadway’s parents are alive; her mother passed away from cancer six years ago.
She was a highly motivated student who is “fondly remembered by the staff and students whose lives she touched” at MPS, where she spent her entire academic career. They say that she “affected the lives of those she taught and the personnel she worked with.” According to MPS, she graduated from Monroe High School, as well as Monroe Middle School, Custer Elementary, and Riverside Learning Center in the past.
“A lot of people are going to miss Emma. She was a powerful presence. She was an aunt, a niece, a cousin, a friend, and a sister in addition to being a daughter and a granddaughter. Emma Pearl, you are so special to us! “according to the GoFundMe page.
Because Treadway’s family will be grieving and unable to work for some time, the GoFundMe campaign has set a goal of $10,000 to aid with funeral and living expenses while they are unable to earn an income.
Additionally, the Monroe Public Schools is asking for the aid of the school community by posting the following message on the school’s website: “The Baccarella Funeral Home (1201 S. Telegraph Rd, Monroe, Michigan) is accepting cash and check donations to help alleviate the costs of the funeral.”
Counselors are available to students and employees at MPS when the community is in mourning, and they are also able to make recommendations for community resources. It is also advised that the parents of pupils have conversations with their children about the feelings that their children may be going through as a result of the death of one of their classmates.
