Evelyn was my high school drama teacher. To be sure, I had many fine teachers, but Evelyn was the best of the best. I remember her with fondness, admiration and gratitude for all she taught me. My heart-felt condolences to her family on their great loss. Nancy Gibbs Ball, Davis High School, Class of 1973

I am so glad that Evelyn and I took several trips together and that I took so many pictures. I will have such good memories everytime I look at these albums. I will miss her very much. Claudine

I considered my remembrance of Evelyn when I heard of her passing. I remember a woman who was tolerant, a woman who understood boundaries and rules did not belong everywhere, that there were exceptions. I remember a woman with a certain wisdom born of the heart. I remember a woman of courage, who sat in a college classroom with us "then-young" students calmly, collectively focused while we were chaotic. I remember and appreciate having known her. My sympathies to her family. Cathie (Boren) Wicks

I have so many fond memories of Mrs. Dewsnup from taking Drama Class at DHS. She was great fun as a teacher, but always held us accountable. She always cast me in the roles that gave me room to expand as an actress, I've appreciated that more and more over the years. It was her way of saying I could portray the character with depth or flaws, I could do more than be an ingnue. She gave me confidence and I will always hold her close in my heart. Thank you Mrs. D!

I send my love to Evelyn's family. Evelyn touched my life with her many accomplishments, but most of all, her love for her family and the Lord. She will be greatly missed by those she leaves behind, but greeted with great joy by the many that have gone before! A Great Woman!

Evelyn touched so many lives in a profound and positive way. Her guidance, creativity, and passion for theatre shaped my life and, I know, the lives of many others. Her patience with the teen ego was unsurpassed. She is missed.

My Dear Mrs. Dewsnup! Oh my goodness Dan, how I have thought of your Mom over the years. Remember when she took us to the Ashland Shakespeare festival and plunked us down in a tent and trusted us to behave? And when she single handedly took us to Newport Beach for a festival, never once worrying (at least as far as we knew...) that we would 'do her proud'. Dan, your Mom was a great woman, an inspiration. There are very few (Brunelle, Dewsnup) that one remembers and reveres from childhood. Your Mom was GREAT. You are blessed my old friend.

Evelyn Dewsnup was my high school drama teacher and debate coach. My mother always complained that my scholastic debating experience made me a more argumentative young man. And I've joked for years that Mrs. Dewsnup "made a man of me" directing me in school plays -- she taught a callow teenage boy to stand and stride and speak as befits an adult male on stage. Her lessons live on, for I recall her instructions and suggestions every time (and I do... mean every time) I'm on stage. Thank you, Evelyn Dewsnup, and "bon voyage."
