Shirley Ann Everhart


Mrs. Shirley Ann Everhart entered through Heavens gate on August 18, 2013.  She will be greatly missed by her husband Terence P. Everhart; children, Gary DeBruine, Michele Everhart Ross, Mike (Diane) Everhart, Cheryl (Brian) Pratt.  She adored all 9 of her grandchildren; Joy, Jenna, Tonya, Nick, Max, Logan, Kevin, Katie and Cody.  She is also survived by 13 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild soon to arrive.  Her sister Leatrice (Richard) Rokicki, brother Ken (Alice) Tietema and many nieces and nephews.

She also was blessed with many great friends and neighbors who were always there for her.  We know she has joined the Angel Choir with her beautiful voice and is joining her parents Casper and Cecilia Tietema and brother Jim Tietema in Heaven.  Shirley’s husband and family would like to thank Spectrum Hospice team for such compassion and great care.
