Virginia Roberta Brown Skvarek
Virginia Roberta Brown Skvarek, our beautiful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend returned to our
Father in Heaven peacefully and well-loved on January 19, 2013.
Virginia was born on October 20, 1927, in Glendale, Calif. to Louis Landry Brown and Winifred Alverta Stewart. She was a happy girl with happy memories of a more rural California with a grandparent’s farm, a close family, and many friends that shared adventures and games.
After graduating from Glendale High School she had the opportunity to work in Los Angeles as a switchboard operator for the FBI. She loved her job and made close friends who were important to her all of her life.
She met and married Bill Evans, and although their relationship ended in divorce, she became the happy mother of two daughters, MeLinda and Laurie.
Through her working at Hammond Organ Studio as a secretary, she had the opportunity to hone her natural love of music by studying the organ and became a great musician. She shared her talent with others through performance and teaching.
By studying nights she became a top-notch secretary and worked for General Dynamics and the U.S. Forestry Department and retired in 1992 from Clairemont Colleges.
At the end of her career she moved away from California to Sequim and began the happiest time of her life. Virginia was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had time to serve many callings and spend time with wonderful friends she made here in Sequim.
Virginia became a writer and researcher as she published large volumes of family history and genealogy.
She also had time to enjoy new talents of photography and poetry; both came together in her published and sold calendars of the local area.
Her friends here became as close as family and were a great source of joy and contentment in her latest years, always sharing hardship and successes, laughs and tears.
When Virginia was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s her personal courage, independence and grace never failed her and became great strengths while her family and friends came together and supported her through the last stages of her time here on earth.
She was known for her kindness, quick humor, her wry observation and amazing independence. We will miss this lovely mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.
Virginia leaves her sister, Margaret Brown (Ralph Klages), her daughters MeLinda (Terry Jeffress) and Laurie Evans, her six wonderful grandchildren, her nine beautiful great-grandchildren, and friends whom she has loved all of her life.
