HEMPHILL, Evelyn Joyce (Scooter) (nee Coulson) - It is with great sadness that the family of Scooter announce her passing. Born in Kirkland Lake on October 19, 1931 she passed away suddenly on June 17, 2013 in her 81st year. Beloved wife of Ernest James (deceased) survived by her children: Karen (Michael), Susan (David), Michele (Bill, deceased), David (Tammy). Grandmother to Ryan (Christina), Mark (Courtney), Christopher (deceased), Meaghan, Leanne, Daniel, Katie, and Sarah. Great-grandmother to Macy, Blake, and Esme. Also survived by her brother Elmer Coulson of Barrie. Scooter spent her career as a medical secretary working at the Hospital for Sick Children and for Dr. Mercer Rang. She and Ernie had many memories of raising their family on Bamber Court in Don Mills. Her children cherish the memories made travelling in the 'blue station wagon'. They moved to the Haliburton Highlands where they made many great friends, volunteered in the community, and supported the 'Loop Troup'. Scooter and her beloved husband, Ernie, moved to Beaverton in 1999 to be closer to family and friends. She enjoyed her retirement spending time with friends and family, extensive travelling with Ernie and frequent trips to Casino Rama. Scooter will be remembered by those who knew and loved her for her sense of humour and perseverance. She will be missed greatly by friends in Toronto, Wilberforce, Edengrove and Bon Air. There will be a private family celebration honouring Scooter's life. The family appreciates your thoughts and prayers. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation are welcomed.
