Emig, Sandra J.'s Guestbook

Susan and I are so saddened to learn of Sandy's passing. We were OSU music students together, and Sandy was my accompanist for my junior, senior and master's recitals. She was a joy to work with, and she had a great sense of humor and a ready laugh. And gosh, was she talented! I'm sure faculty and students at William Jewell found their lives enriched by her work and her warmth. Sincere condolences to her family.

I was so sorry to hear about Sandra’s passing. I got to know Sandra at Pleasant Valley Manor as she was my tablemate in our dining room at mealtime. Give my sympathy to her family as I will miss her.

Dr. Emig was not only utterly brilliant, but one of the kindest professors we had at William Jewell. She was always willing to help a student, even though it must have seemed like child’s play for her (especially when related to sight-singing and composition). I am grateful to have had her as a teacher, and incrementally more grateful to have had conversation with her beyond the classroom. What a remarkable person she was. She greatly influenced my own teaching, and I will always be thankful beyond measure for her patience and wisdom. We will always tell our Dr. Emig stories with fondness!

I knew Sandi as one of the finest intellects among many at William Jewell. Additionally, her devotion to her discipline and the support of music study and performance showed in her tireless and selfless work on music competitions, teaching, and festivals. She was quiet, devoted, capable. In one sense she left us many years ago because of profound health problems; in another, her work continues to serve and lift up those who came bear her legacy. Thank you, Sandi.
