The epidemic eventually subsided, and Emily returned to Kansas to resume her career as a Red Cross nurse. Over the years, she returned to Alaska to care for the sick, always returning to Kansas. On May 8, 1960, "The Angel of the Yukon", as Emily was called by The Anchorage Times, passed away at the age of eighty-two in El Dorado, Kansas.
