Dale Emerick, Sr. Obituary

Dale Lee Emerick Sr., 84, and his wife, Glenda Raye Emerick, 77, of Three Oaks, both died peacefully, Monday, January 1, 2024.

Dale’s life began November 23, 1939, in Three Oaks, Michigan.  He was one of six children born to Vernon and Mary “Ruth” Emerick.  Glenda’s life began October 29, 1946, in Marked Tree, Arkansas.  She was one of seven children born to Floyd and Helen Robinson.  Dale and Glenda were married September 11, 1965, in Bradford, Arkansas.

Dale and Glenda cherished their faith, children, and grandchildren more than anything.  

Dale retired from the Berrien County Road Department in the early 2000s, after several years of service.  He assisted the sexton of Forest Lawn Cemetery for a time.  He enjoyed maintaining his yard and garden.  He loved to mow.  He and Glenda both enjoyed people tremendously.  They enjoyed lending a helping hand in various situations.  They loved their neighbors and were blessed to help each other out over the years.  When Dale and Glenda’s health started to decline the neighbors would help in any way they could, from bringing meals to running errands. Glenda was an amazing homemaker.  She was a wonderful cook.  She took ceramics classes for many years and made some of the most wonderful momentos that will be cherished by her family.  She enjoyed her flowers and garden, as long as Dale would leave them alone to let them flourish.  

Dale and Glenda will be greatly missed by family and friends.  They are survived by their daughter, Donna (Charles) Palen of Three Oaks; their son, Dale Lee “Butch” Emerick Jr. of Three Oaks; two grandchildren, Rachel (Patrick) Rohloff of Lisbon, North Dakota, Gregory Palen of Dallas, Texas; Glenda’s twin sister, Linda Malott of Arkansas; four brothers, Larry (Beth) Robinson, Don (Benda) Robinson, Daniel “Llano” Robinson, Dwight “Ike” (Debbie) Robinson, all of Arkansas; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Dale and Glenda were preceded in death by their parents; Glenda’s sister, Shirley Bates; Dale’s sisters, Arlene Emerick, Marjorie Dickey; Dale’s brothers, Don Emerick, Bill Emerick, and Richard Emerick.

The family will observe a private remembrance.

Dale and Glenda will be laid to rest together in Forest Lawn Cemetery.

The family prefers contributions in memory of Dale and Glenda be made to the Randall Couchman American Legion Post #204, 204 West Linden Street, Three Oaks, Michigan 49128.
