Emilia married the love of her life, Santiago Jurado, in 1954 and resided in Torrington, Wyoming and was a proud full time house wife and mother, while raising their 7 children before moving to Gering, Nebraska in the early nineties.

She was highly recognized by everyone for her fondness and skills in gardening and planting of her flowers. She especially enjoyed the outdoors and was very proud that her dad taught her how to fish and fillet. She always enjoyed fishing with her brothers and would always giggle and laugh when she would outdo her brothers when fishing and filleting fish. Emilia was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, who enjoyed traveling with her husband, Santiago, and her children and family.
She leaves behind seven children, son Jesse (Sharon) Jurado of Alliance, NE, daughter Ria (Terry) Scott of Scottsbluff, NE, daughter Teresa (Rick) Scott of Cleveland, NC, daughter Maria Jurado-Flynn of Atlanta, GA, son Joe (Beth) Jurado of Denver, CO, daughter Gloria (Anthony) Delgado of Denver, CO, daughter Esther (Brad) Holliday of Billings, MT, and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
