Posted photos in high resolution of possibly Emma visiting Iceland at the possible Stafholt Church about 1961. They are still not the best photos. Enhanced the photos for color and light/dark.
The 60s-ish color is changed.

Emma lived at 2413 Victor ST, Bellingham, WA. This was a recent posting of the house for sale, although completely remodeled. This is address on 1907
