In humble submission to the will of God, we respectfully announce the earthly transition of Mrs. Katie Lee (Koonce) Everett, of Chipley, FL, on January 23, 2021 in the comfort of her home with her family at her bedside.
Katie was born on November 2, 1938 to the late Artis & Ollie Lee (Collins) Koonce in Wewahitchka, FL. Being raised in a Christian home, she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and later in life connected with the Orange Hill Missionary Baptist Church of Chipley, FL. Kate served the Lord and her church diligently and never complained about the work to be done. She was a part of the Kitchen Ministry at her church and loved reading her bible and studying God’s word.
Upon her completion of schooling in Gulf County, FL, Katie relocated to Chipley, FL and met Mr. Floyd Wendell Everett. They were united in Holy Matrimony and God blessed them 38 years of memories and love. Together they reared seven children in a God-fearing home and taught them how to be successful and hard-working adults.
Beloved by all who knew her, Katie had a deep passion for her family and enjoyed when the family would gather and fellowship together. She was a lover of sports & FSU, enjoyed fishing, gardening, telling jokes, and cooking for her family and many in the community. She never met a stranger and always had words of wisdom to give to you when you needed it the most.
She leaves to cherish her precious memories three daughters: Rita (Willie) King of Chipley, FL, Wendy Philyaw of Tallahassee, FL, and Mary Ann Honore of Panama City, FL; four sons: Allen Everett of Tampa, FL, Floyd (Carlette) Everett of Panama City, FL, Larry (Patricia) Everett and Phillip Everett, both of Chipley, FL; special son: Michael Everett of Atlanta, GA; a special granddaughter: Chanavia Givens of Panama City, FL; sister: Bessie Jackson of Panama City, FL; brother-in-law: Alton Everett of Sarasota, FL; a large host of grandchildren, great & great-great grandchildren; along with a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives & friends.
