Wilma Lee Emerick Hatridge, 70 of West Mifflin, formerly of Somerset, and White Horse Mountain, passed away on May 25, 2021, at Jefferson Hospital. She was born in Fairhope, PA on January 4, 1951, to the late Leora Catherine and Verdie Russell Emerick and was the youngest of 13 siblings. She is survived by her son Dominic Jordan of Myrtle Beach, SC, and Angelo Jordan of North Braddock. She is also survived by her grandchildren Samantha Jordan of Smock, Danielle Haas of McKeesport, Joey Jordan of McKeesport, Justin Jordan of McKeesport, Anastasia Jordan of McKeesport, Shannon Rowland of McKeesport, Kaylynn Jordan of Chambersburg, Nate Jordan of Carnegie, Zach Jordan of Pittsburgh, and Dominic Jordan Jr., of South Carolina, Hailey Jordan of South Carolina, and Destiny Jordan, of South Carolina, siblings Robert Emerick, of Fairhope, PA, Wayne Emerick, of Hyndman, PA, Ernest Emerick, of Fairhope, PA, Betty Lou Clites, of Hyndman, PA, Pauline Moore, of Hyndman, PA, and June Emerick, of Florida, as well as a multitude of great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. Wilma was preceded in death by her parents, siblings Merle, George, John, Jim, and Sharon, as well as her sons Joe and John Jordan, and her grandson Josh Jordan. As a child, Wilma was the first of the family's generations to learn german/english and enjoyed playing on the family farm. She also enjoyed swimming at the waterfall by the train tunnel, where she and her siblings would take turns jumping on and off the trains going up the mountain! She was an amazing mother and grandmother who loved her family very much. Wilma was nothing short of a blessing. She was that and more- no matter where she was or who she was with, she always made others smile and laugh. You could call her at any time of the day, and she would have an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Her hugs could make the world stop turning. She was kind, quiet, and never raised her voice. She enjoyed watching The Brady Bunch, Alice, and The Nanny. She enjoyed music, and specifically enjoyed the music of Foreigner. She also enjoyed reading her Bible. Her greatest accomplishment was being a mother as well as her faith. She was known for her sweet disposition and wonderful sense of humor. She will be missed beyond measure- may she fly with the butterflies! Arrangements have been entrusted to S.M. Finney Funeral Home.
