EVALYNN MORGAN QUISENBERRYEVALYNN MORGAN QUISENBERRY December 7, 1920 - September 25, 2015 Evalynn Morgan Quisenberry died peacefully on September 25, 2015, after a creative and adventurous life. She was born in Los Angeles, California and was married at age 20 to Dr. Walter Brown Quisenberry on June 20, 1940. They spent the war years in various cities while Dr. Quisenberry served as a physician in the Public Health Service, now part of the US Army. In 1947, they moved to Honolulu where the family loved living in Manoa with their three children, Linda Lizbeth, Anne Jane and Walter (Terry) Jr. Dr. Quisenberry predeceased his wife on July 6, 2002. Evalynn was mother of 3, grandmother of 6 and great grandmother of 4. She was also an artist, teacher and author of 20 self-published family history books. She explored many media including oil and watercolor painting, sculpting, drawing, woodcarving and sewing. She collected" treasures" wherever she went-dolls, rocks, fabric, etc.-and was a common sight at swap meets and thrift stores. She attended the University in her 50s and 60s, graduating with a BA degree in sculpture in 1986. She became a familiar sight in Honolulu, wearing her lively, handmade muumuus with matching visor and beads. She happily shared her life stories as well as her "treasures" including rings, polished rocks and other "wonderful things". Her last years were spent at Hale Ola Kino nursing home where she continued to make a splash, beautifully dressed everyday, and in regular contact with her 3 children (Linda, Jane, Terry), 6 grandchildren (Lissa, Matt, David, Michael, Max and Marie Helen) and 4 great grandchildren (Makayla, Violet, Lucas and a great granddaughter due in February). Her lively personality, fun stories and beautiful smile are sorely missed by family, friends and acquaintances. Private services will be held at Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery. Donations can be made to a favorite charity in her memory.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
