Emma was born in Methuen to John and Louise Ciprano Borrelli and was educated in Lawrence, graduating from Lawrence High School.

Uliano, to whom she was married for 47 years, and her daughter Louise J. Manzi. She was also predeceased by her siblings Alfred, Josephine, Anna, Philomena, Arthur, Frank, and Albert Borrelli and Lillian Cianci.
Emma is survived by her daughters and their spouses, Jean and Richard Abel of Newburyport, Paula and Joseph Travers of Bradford, Christine Parks with whom she resided, and son-in-law Richard Manzi.

Emma enjoyed spending her time with her 10 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren, sharing her passions of cooking, crocheting, gardening and moving trees around the yard.
