It was during the December blizzard of 2009 that Calhoun mountain woman and recluse Emma Metz died. Her place of burial was in the deep woods behind her abode on Crummis Creek, difficult to reach on a good day.

The grave diggers spent most of two days getting to the Metz graveyard in high snow, steep slick roads, and fallen trees, the grave dug in almost solid rock.

"Getting Emma buried was like a major construction project," said neighbor Russ Richardson. "I often wondered if her ghost was laughing at their effort," he said.

A memorial service was held months later.
