Birth: Mar. 18, 1928
Death: Aug. 23, 2011

Evelyn F. McPhail, 83, Scranton, Kansas, our mother, went to be with the Lord, her husband John, and many family and friends on August 23, 2011.

Evelyn was born on the family farm at Wheaton, Kansas, March 18, 1928, the fourth of seven daughters born to LeRoy and Elsie Toothaker Warthen. The family later moved to Topeka, and Evelyn graduated from Topeka High School.

She married John McPhail February 23, 1946. They lived in Scranton their entire married life.

Evelyn was a homemaker and a gifted pianist. She played at local churches and was a member of the Scranton Assembly of God. In later years she attended Cross Road Community Church, Scranton, Kansas.

John preceded her in death August 10, 2007. She is survived by four children and their spouses, Carolyn and Dan Workman, Ginger and Daryl Shughart, Dennis and Lois McPhail, and Pat and Leon Schroder; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; two sisters, Ina Coley, Macon, GA, and Lolita Laubach, Topeka, KS. She especially loved her little dog, Tuffie.

We children will always be grateful to Mom for taking us to church every Sunday, where we learned to lead Christian lives. She taught us the old hymns of the Church and we still love them today. She will be forever loved and deeply missed.

The family would like to thank the staff at Brookside Retirement Community for their loving care of Mom.

A funeral service will be 2:00 p.m. Saturday, August 27, 2011, at Cross Road Community Church, Scranton, Kansas. Interment will be in Scranton Cemetery.
