Evelyn Berry Brunskill
Vancouver - January 25, 1930 - June 29, 2021
Evelyn Bernice Berry Brunskill, 91, passed away peacefully on June 29, 2021, in Vancouver, WA.
Evelyn was born on January 25, 1930 to Joseph and Alice Berry in Salinas, CA. She married Ernest Lee Brunskill on July 26, 1953. They were married 46 years, until his passing in 1999.
Beloved Evelyn is survived by four daughters, Kathy (Dan) Faucett of Hayden, CO, Debbie Brunskill of Vancouver, WA, Marian McKone of Camas, WA, and Judy Brunskill (Brian Scheafer) of Vancouver, WA. She was a blessing to her 10 grandchildren, Tricia, Angie, Austin, Elizabeth, Jerod, Grace, Jonathan, Natalie, Ryan and Grant. She also has 5 great-grandchildren, MacKenzie, Raegan, Kiera, Aspen and Blaise.
She is survived by her two brothers, Clifford Berry of Pacific Grove, CA and Kenneth Berri of Berlin, Germany, as well as many cousins in the Salinas Valley of California.
Evelyn earned her BA in Education at San Jose State University and went on to teach primary education. Once her children reached school age, she was a substitute teacher for many years in Fremont, CA.
She will always be remembered as a woman who valued others above herself. She was sweet and kind to all. She was a valiant prayer warrior and had a deep and abiding trust in God and His ways. Her selflessness was legendary, as was her love for chocolate, sweets and professional football.
Per Evelyn's wishes, no services will be held. Donations may be made to Parkinson.org
