Emily Janet Gervais, 2
NORTH WALES, Pa. - Emily Janet Gervais passed away on Jan. 28, 2018, having spent most of her life fighting acute myeloid leukemia.
She would have been three years old on February 16.
Throughout her treatment at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, she could be seen running down the halls providing free medical checkups to doctors and nurses, driving her cozy coupe to see which friends were out and about, and teaching everyone all they needed to know about Doc McStuffins and Paw Patrol.
Her favorite playmate was her big sister, Eloise, and she was so proud to have become a big sister herself in December 2017 with the birth of her twin sisters, Katherine and Madeline.
Emily was predeceased by her maternal grandmother, Regina (nee Shandor); and is survived by her loving parents, Greg and Lisa; her three sisters, Eloise, Katherine and Madeline; her maternal grandfather, Bill Oswald and his wife Ann of Montgomery County, Pa.; and her paternal grandparents, Gary and Janet Gervais of Portland, Maine. Additionally, she is survived by her loving aunt, Mary-Elizabeth Gervais, of Alexandria, Va.; and uncles, Christopher T. Gervais and his fiancée Theresa of Portland, Maine; William C. Oswald Jr. of New York; and John M. Oswald of Montgomery County, Pa.
A public viewing will take place Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, from 10-11 a.m. at Scanlin Funeral Home, 175 East Butler Ave., Chalfont, Pa.
