“Please continue to pray for comfort and peace for her entire family.”

An obituary for Everly describes her as a member of the Odon Christian Church, who was also part of volleyball and softball teams, cross-country club and Girls Who Code.

“The family loved attending her athletic events together.  When not playing sports, Everly loved riding her bicycle to the local library.  

“She was a bright, inquisitive young girl and an avid reader.  Her smile and enthusiasm could brighten anyone’s day.”

She is survived by her parents, a brother and her grandparents.
