Emma was the second child born to Hyrum and Vera Meservy. An older sister Gail and younger brothers Dell and Vonny completed the family. Emma learned her love of growing plants and cooking at an early age on the family farm in Dietrich. Hard work is something she always appreciated. In her youth, Emma was active in sports and her community.

Emma earned a teaching certificate while at Ricks and taught in Idaho Falls. She met her sweetheart Harvey Krieger while attending College and they later married in Dietrich in 1958. Emma and Harvey were sealed in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in 1967. Married life brought many wonderful events including the birth of their four children, Perry, Kari, Johnna and Susy. Together, Emma and Harvey started Harvey’s Office Plus in 1980. It continues as a family business.
Throughout Emma’s life she was involved in many leadership positions in both Church and community. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and after retirement served a Mission with Harvey in Atlanta, GA. Emma loved the Gospel and the joy it brought to her life. She loved teaching those around her and could turn any situation into a life lesson.
