Verlie Irene Newquist Obituary
July 21, 1922 - April 30, 2016 Verlie passed away Saturday morning in Newport Beach. Her beautiful smile and cheery outlook on life will be missed by all who knew her. Verlie was born in Los Angeles to John Henry Myers and Nellie Verlie Myers. After losing her father early in life, Verlie grew up with her mother and grandmother. Living in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Los Feliz, she always stayed a California girl. Verlie graduated from John Marshall High School and attended University of Oregon. She joined the Pi Phi Sorority, made long-lasting friendships, and met and married the love of her life James Whetham Newquist. War interrupted their time in school. While Jim was away, Verlie did hospital volunteerism and worked at Union Station, downtown L.A. A fifty-five year resident of Newport Beach, Verlie had many interests. She loved her dogs, National Charity League, playing bridge with friends, and creating artful flower arrangements. While spending much time in the desert, she and Jim supported the Bob Hope Desert Classic Golf Tournament. For two years they co-chaired the Classic Ball. Loving mother of Leslie, John (Nancy), Dana, and Bob, Verlie was preceded in death by Jim and son Steve. She is also survived by grandchildren Brian (Krystle), Natalie (Steven), Renee, Nicole, Nicholas, and Linnea (Allan); great-grandchildren Michael and Phoenix. Service for immediate family Monday, May 9th, 10:30 am at Pacific View Cemetery, Newport Beach. A celebration for family and friends will follow at Dana's home.
