Emma Mae Elzey of Millsboro DE, formerly of Cambridge peacefully passed away Friday, October 23, 2020 at TidalHealth Nanticoke. She was 66.
Born January 5, 1954 in Cambridge, she was a daughter of Rachel Warfield Cannon and the late Omar Cannon, Sr.
Mae attended the local area schools including Cambridge High. For many years she worked in Healthcare as a caregiver. Mae was a caring and compassionate person that found helping those in need very rewarding.
Nana, Emma Mae and Maebird were names some would call her but most of her extended family fondly referred to her as “Aunt Mae “. Always known as the one who knew everything going on in the community, she was the one to ask for the gossip. She handmade fleece blankets for various fundraisers to help the needy. Mae enjoyed cooking for and being with her kids and grandkids, to her this was her greatest joy.
In her spare time Mae loved yard sales, playing bingo, doing word searches and never passed up a ride around town. She enjoyed collecting miniature gold clocks and owls. Mae always was a lover of all animals, especially her dog Roxie. “Aunt Mae’s” warm disposition and comforting smile will be missed by many.
