Virginia Ann Everett
Virginia Ann Everett, 61, of Statesboro, Ga., passed peacefully at Ogeechee Area Hospice after an extended illness on May 2, 2021.
    She was able to touch the lives of many, many people through her career of teaching high school mathematics for 32 years. She taught at David Emanuel Academy in Stillmore, Ga.; Bradwell Institute in Hinesville, Ga.; Statesboro High School, Statesboro, Ga.; and Southeast Bulloch High School in Brooklet, Ga., where she served as head of the Mathematics Department until her retirement in 2012.
    After retirement, she continued her outreach by becoming a tutor to students who needed her help, high school or college level. Her unique ability to help students understand has made her a favorite among many.
    Virginia, a faithful follower of Christ, was forever seeking His face. Her faith and love were shown in every part of her life and compassion for others was most evident in her ability to mentor others. She was humble, compassionate and ever charitable in giving to those in need and truly walked her faith daily.
