MADISON, Ga. - Kathryn Zachry Everitt died Sunday October 11th after almost 94 years of life on this earth.

 

She lived most of that time in Madison, Georgia where she was a member of the First United Methodist Church. Kathryn was born in West Point, Georgia in 1915, married Henry Olin Everitt in 1934 and began married life together in Covington, Ga.

The family later moved to Billups Avenue in Madison where Kathryn and Olin lived and celebrated more than 60 years of married life together.

 

Kathryn was a faithful member and treasurer of the Georgia Mallory Sunday School class at the Methodist Church in Madison where she also served as Trustee, and steward of the parlor where she arranged flowers every Sunday for many years. She was a leader in the intercessory prayer group at the church, and was revered by many there as a faithful servant of Jesus Christ. She was a Red Cross Gray Lady, a friend to special education students at Madison Elementary School, a member of the Madison Garden Club, an expert seamstress using her skill to make clothing for the Methodist Orphans home.

 

She is is survived by her three children, Henry Olin Everitt, Jr. and his wife Janice of Huntsville, Alabama; Alfred Zachry Everitt and his wife Mary of Augusta, Ga., and Mary Kathryn Everitt of Athens, Ga; seven grandchildren, Henry Olin Everitt III (Patricia), Zachry Shores Everitt (Karen), Sarah Everitt Baker (Rhett), Zachry Wade Everitt (JoLynn), Tally H.
