At her cousin’s wedding she met the groom’s brother, Basil “Buz” Tannel; on November 26, 1955 they were united in marriage in Chicago, IL. The couple later moved to Port Washington before building a home in Cedarburg.

She later worked at Mequon Care Center and Lasata Care Center. In 1991, Emily and Buz moved back to Port Washington, and Emily later took a job at Exacto Spring in her retirement years.
Buz preceded her in death in 2006.
