Emily was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. She graduated from Paschal High School in 1956. After high school, Emily married David Pulliam, and they moved to College Station.

She was active with the Burleson Church of Christ and Hilltop Church of Christ. After becoming empty nesters, she and her husband lived a few years in Phoenix, AZ, and Baton Rouge, LA. The couple moved back to the metroplex in the early 90’s, to be close to family.

Emily enjoyed teaching children's Sunday School, working in her flower beds, sun tanning around the swimming pool, and traveling. She especially loved spending time with her friends, family and precious grandchildren.

Emily is preceded in death by Elbert and Ersie Priddy, her parents, and by Rolena Austin, her sister.
