Mrs. Chauncey was born February 10, 1924, daughter of the late Tom and Rosetta Clark Mercer. In April of 1941, she married Woodrow Everette, and with her love and support, he established a successful trucking business. During their 54 years of marriage, she was always a loving devoted wife.

Chauncey of Burlington, NC, who preceded her in death in May of 2008. She was a member of Ephesus Free Will Baptist Church.
Her sweet smile and loving heart extended beyond family to all who knew her. Whether it was a friend in need after a hurricane, or a poor man needing money for food, she gave unselfishly and quietly, seeking no praise from others. She even made homemade soup for her favorite doctor and his nurses. “It is more blessed to give than receive” and “Love thy neighbor as thyself” truly exemplified her life. She will be sorely missed by family and friends.

Also surviving are two step-daughters of Burlington, NC, Judy Dickey and Annette Dickey and husband Kenny, and four step-grandchildren along with their families.
