Evelyn E. Andersen, 98, homemaker, painter

December 28, 2003

Evelyn Edwards Andersen, a Long Green Valley homemaker who later in life became an avid painter, died Friday at Ginger Cove Health Center in Annapolis of congestive heart failure. She was 98.

Born Evelyn Edwards, she was the daughter of Philip H. "Doc" Edwards, a former principal of City College in Baltimore. She graduated from Eastern High School in Baltimore and took classes at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

In 1941, she married Lewis J. Andersen, a salesman of commercial kitchen equipment. They lived in Long Green Valley. After he retired in 1961, the couple moved to Bradenton, Fla., where Mrs. Andersen took up abstract painting.

Mr. Andersen died in 1983, and Mrs. Andersen moved back to Maryland in 1991 to be closer to family.

Her family will hold a private memorial service.

She is survived by two daughters, Lynn Doyles of Southampton, Bermuda, and Patricia High of Crownsville; five grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
