A beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, Emme Kate Horton, left this world unexpectedly on Feb 11, 2020. She was born in Griffin, Georgia in April 2002. She grew up in Griffin and attended Rock Springs Christian Academy. Since her sophomore year, she has attended Social Circle High and was in the Class of 2020. Emme loved watching “The Office” on TV, was a great basketball player and was a fierce opponent in any sport in which she participated, which included playing games and cards with her family. She was funny and vivacious, but she was also introverted and introspective. The way she squinched her nose when she laughed, along with her movie star lips, will be sorely missed!
When you think of Emme, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Please remember that life is fragile and short, and you should always have faith in God’s plans.
She leaves behind her Dad, Robbie Horton and his wife Tara; Mom, Michelle Smith and her husband Josh; Sisters Payton and Kadie Methvin; Brothers Gabe and Landon Smith; Grandparents: “Grandmom” Jennie Childress, “Granny” Linda Gilbert, “Poppy” Gene Horton and Nina, “Gran” Cynthia and “DaddyPete” Pete Green, “Grandmama and Granddaddy” Karen and Clark Smith; several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is preceded in death by her Grandfathers; “Granddaddy”, Jim Childress and “Bubba”, Ronald Gilbert.
There will be two opportunities to celebrate her life with family and friends. On Saturday, Feb 15, 2020, a visitation starts at 12:30 and service at 2:00, Rock Springs Church, 219 Rock Springs Rd, Milner, GA
The second service will be on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020, at 1:00 pm, at Crossroads Baptist Church 227 County Road 229, Social Circle, GA.
