Lilly Faith Everett

Published 6:29 pm Friday, April 28, 2017

Lilly Faith Everett has passed gently into the loving arms of Jesus. She was born silent into this world on April 26th, 2017, but made a loud and joyful noise when she entered through heaven’s gates. She was diagnosed before birth with Trisomy 18. Lilly is the daughter of Rumley and Crystal Everett and the little sister of Brailey. She is a true miracle in that she fought very hard to remain here on Earth with us. She has opened the eyes of many to how precious life is and where our focus should be.

Her grandparents are Shelton and Debra Cooper of Pantego, and Gilbert and Lila Everett of Bath. Her great-grandparents are Talmage and Frances Cooper of Pantego, Lila Lilley of Bath, and Lois Slade of Pantego.

A celebration of Lilly’s life will be held at Union Grove Church of Christ, 6889 NC Hwy. 99 N. Pantego, NC 27860 on Sunday, April 30th at 3pm with burial following at the Everett Family Cemetery, 440 North White Post Road, Pinetown, NC 27865.

Pallbearers are Lilly Faith’s uncles, Jeremy Cooper of Pantego, Nick Cooper of Washington, William Everett of Bath and Matt Respass of Plymouth, NC.
