Couric was born to Elinor (Hene) Couric and John Martin Couric and is the sibling of Clara Couric Batchelor, John M. Couric, Jr., and former Today co-host and present CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric. When she died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 54 on October 18, 2001, her sister Katie Couric gave a eulogy at her funeral, pointing out that it irritated Emily when people asked her if she was Katie Couric's sister and that "I just want you to know I will always be proud to say 'I am Emily Couric's sister'."
