She was a member of The Pentecostals of Alexandria and served as a Sunday School Teacher for many years. In 1948, she completed High School at Oak Hill High, Elmer, Louisiana, and furthered her education at a Business School which prepared her for employment at Central Louisiana State Hospital as a Steno-Clerk where she retired in 1986.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and son. Also, two sisters, Agalice E. Morgan and Milburn E. Powell, and three brothers, Albert D. Everett, Earl R. Everett, and John W. Everett.
Those left to cherish her memory are her extended family, which includes many nieces and nephews.
