Thanks for sharing. A couple of thoughts.
Notice the AP, Associated Press, which indicates that the paper got this off the wires. So the source of this article is probably a local paper. Hopefully for the descendants of Emily that paper survived.
The 2nd paragraph gives the clue that she has been interviewed before.
Interested parties would be smart to check all papers for an article published when she turned 100; chances are good it was on the AP wires once again.
