Emily Avery Stump, 35, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, July 15, 2016. She passed away peacefully at home and in the company of those she loved.
Emily was the dear wife and best friend of Mark Stump. She was born May 23, 1981 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Steven Avery and Beverly Murdick. In addition to Mark and her parents, Emily is survived by her brothers and sister: Zachary Roundy, Abigail Avery, Johnathan Avery, and David Avery.
Originally from Bozeman, Montana, Emily came to Savannah as a student athlete at SCAD, where she studied graphic design and photography and played volleyball on scholarship. She became a key member of the music ministry at Calvary Chapel Savannah, where she ministered until her passing. She loved meeting new people, seeing new places, caring for those who had less than she, and standing up for those who had no voice. Her friends and family knew her to be kind, genuine, selfless, and faithful.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 3:00 PM at Calvary Chapel Savannah, 2700 Gregory St. in Savannah. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be given to Calvary Chapel Savannah or the Old Savannah City Mission.Print This Obituary & Condolences
