Passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at the age of seventeen.
With deep sadness, the entire family announces the sudden and devastating loss of our beautiful girl Emerson, who was always the life of the party, the goof for the camera, and the old soul and deep heart of the family unit. Beloved daughter of Kristen and David, she will leave an indelible mark on her best friends and siblings, older brother Kieran, and younger sister Sage. She will be missed each and every day by her extended family on both sides: Grandma Lynda (Quentin), Grandpa “Kay” (predeceased by Inga), Uncle Andy (Susan), Auntie Julie, Aunt Karen (Harold), Uncle Larren, Uncle Peter (Leasa), and Deb (predeceased by Uncle Rob). Cousins, great aunts and uncles and the rest of the extended family will cherish the memories they made with her.
From her community, Emerson will be missed by fellow counsellors and cabinmates from her beloved Camp Wabanaki, hockey teammates, classmates, and “Skate Unit” colleagues.
Emerson was outgoing, loving, opinionated, determined and hard-working. When we think of her, we will be reminded of all the fun times we shared and the long list of things she loved: camp, outtrip, hockey, the cottage, adventures with family in BC, the littlest campers, coaching kids, Australia, country music, capturing her world through videography, her favourite foods (sushi and popcorn - sometimes together), black mascara, golden tans, and the ever growing sweatshirt collection she was insanely proud of.
Visitation will be held on Friday, February 8, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto. Service will be held on Saturday, February 9, at 1:00 PM at Kingsway-Lambton United Church, 85 The Kingsway. Reception to follow.
Be aware that there is NO PARKING at the church, so please carpool or consider public transit.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Camp Wabanaki, the place Emerson loved the most:
