Evelyn C. Losack Obituary
Losack, Evelyn C.

Evelyn Beatrice Salce Curtis Losack (86) of Corrales, New Mexico left us to join her husband on January 10, 2016. Evelyn was a farmer and environmentalist in Corrales her entire life. She was married to Johnnie Losack for 54 years and was a third generation member of six generations of Corrales farmers. She obtained a Fine Arts Music Degree at UNM, was a private music teacher for 62 years and was lead organist at multiple Catholic parishes in NM and TX. She was music education supervisor for 5 elementary schools. She insured that hundreds of children attended musical events by providing tickets and encouragement. She founded, led or was a central participant in the development of many Corrales community organizations including: Cultural Arts Council, Harvest Festival, St. Nick's celebration, Farmland Preservation Committee, Growers' Market, Corrales Water Advisory Board, the Agricultural Committee of the Middle Rio Grande Valley. She was also a central participant in many music organizations: UNM Fine Arts Alumni Board, two NM music organizations and one national (SAI). There are many organizations in which she participated and gave endless amounts of time and/or farm produce for fundraising. She never missed a chance to vote and supported many local candidates. She and her husband received many community awards in both music and farming over the years.

She is survived by her sister, Dorothy Trafton; daughter Joneve Losack Bender and son-in-law, Gary; son Mark Losack and his wife, Veronica; son Vincent Losack; grandson Christopher Losack and wife, Michelle; granddaughter Nicole Freidt and husband, Arnell; grandson Jeffery Bender and wife, Brandi; granddaughter Carol Bender; grandsons Brandon, Garrett, and Lorin Losack; great-grandchildren Isabella and Alex Freidt, Sydney and Logan Losack, and soon to be McKayla Quinn Bender; and numerous cousins and in-laws in New Mexico and Texas.
