Oburn Louise Bonds was born May 28, 1921, to Anne Wadley Bonds in Memphis, Tenn. Her father, a police officer, was killed in the line of duty when Oburn was age 4. Mother Anne, a medical technician, later married Robert L. Bowlin, M.D., who taught Oburn a love for fishing. Having attended Memphis State University, she married John Quenichet in 1939. John became a commercial pilot with Braniff Airways and Oburn remained a stay-at-home mom, loving wife and grandmother for 70 years. Oburn was always vibrant, energetic, loving and active in dancing, piano, tennis, hunting, fishing, sewing, cooking and playing bridge. Her radiant smile and sense of humor always announced her presence. She loved family and friends and was quick to support worthy (especially family-related) causes in life. She treasured Sundays with church and family dinners. She believed in living a balanced life and always loved unconditionally. Husband John and a son, Rick, preceded her in death.
