Emily Anne Riebau

July 22, 1935 ~ April 21, 2020

On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, Emily Anne Riebau (nee Audubon) of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, passed away at the age of 84. She was born on July 22, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY. Emily graduated from Farmingdale State College with an AA in 1983, and in 1993 she earned her Bachelor of Liberal Studies at University of Mary Washington. She married Victor Golembieski in 1955. The marriage ended in divorce. She married William Riebau in 1976. She worked at Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New York before moving to Virginia and on to her final home in Florida.
Emily was an extremely kind-hearted, generous woman who enjoyed bike riding and swimming. Emily was also very tech-savvy, displaying her incredible ability to keep up with her son on computer software. She used to make creative greeting cards on the computer and send them to loved ones for holidays and birthdays. Emily had an independent spirit, traveling by herself across the country to see relatives, and she took care of affairs with ease and confidence.
Emily was preceded in death by her husband, William F. Riebau, and her twin sister, Ethel Gardner. She is survived by her sister, Joan Dewhirst; her children Victoria Linnell, Joseph Golembieski, and Amy Bertman; her stepsons William Riebau and Joseph Riebau; and grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Dear Vickie, Joey and Amy – Very sorry hear this sad news about your Mom and our Aunt Emily. Our Mom, Joan Audubon Dewhirst is oldest sister to Emily and Ethel. To this very day, our Mom entertains her children and grandchildren with great stories about growing up in Glendale, Queens NY. Many of her most fun stories feature the ”Birdie Bloggers”, twins Emily and Ethel. Our Mom recently told us about the nicknames their Mom (Nana) and Dad (Ray Aububon) had for the three girls – Joan was “Nosey Goggins”, Ethel was “The Lovely Child” and Emily was “Sweet Leilani”.
Wow, those Aububon girls are each one of a kind and “good ole gals”.

We are thinking of all of our cousins, sending you prayers and wishing you well. In honor of your Mom and our Aunt Emily we hope you get a chance to listen to attached version of “Sweet Leilani” by Bing Crosby.

RIP our Aunt Emily.
Love to all
Ray and Karen Dewhirst and Family

We miss her every day! SHE was one of a kind. She sat next to mom in the dining room at Stuart Lodge at every meal for at least 4 1/2 yrs.
We had many discussions about her yrs in the medical field. The coaxing and cajoling to get her to eat more than 1 scrambled egg. I did get her to start having black and white sodas. She had vanilla ice cream and coke. No chocolate syrup for her!. At least it had some calories.
You both did a super great job being attentive to her needs . Dennis you’re a saint….I think she is happy now. Edith and Linda

My Condolences to our family. I only met Aunt Emily as a young lad. She was kind and considerate. Grandma spoke highly of Aunt Emily many years ago. While painful today, looking forward to that great meeting in the Lord’s presence to see both twins at the right hand of the Father.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
