M.M. Berry's diary note "Miss Kate Wright went down to Miss Waller" on April 12th 1898. It is almost certainly whilst with the Wallers who are related to the Heards by marriage, that Emma Kathleen met her future husband Nicholas Pitts, as his sister married the daughter of a Waller.
On census day 1901 Emma Kathleen was described as help at the house of Mr William E Waller, 67 and Mrs Susan Waller, 58, at 34 Victoria Street, Exmouth - sister Nellie was visiting. Also visiting was Ellen Lake, of Cruwys Morchard - birthplace of Mrs Waller. Mr Waller was from Puddington.
Emma was on holiday at Sandy Bay, Littleham staying with son Laurie in 1954. Whilst out walking in high winds she was blown over, and in the fall fatally injured herself. Four and a half year old grandson Nicholas had screamed when she told him that she was going on holiday and he was inconsolable, saying prophetically that he would never see his gran again. Emma died of Cerebral Concussion and sub-dural hamorrhage following the fall.
A note has been found from husband Nicholas requesting copy of birth certificate, with names and dates.
Noted events in her life were:
• Parents Names. Daughter of Lewis William Wright (1850 - 1928) and Mary Martha Berry (1851 - 1939)
Emma married Nicholas Samuel Pitts, son of William Lawrence Pitts and Ann Elizabeth Cole Loye, on 23 Sep 1911 in Sandford, Devon. (Nicholas Samuel Pitts was born on 23 Nov 1884 in Stokenham, Devon and died on 10 May 1948 in Crediton, Devon.)
