Obituary: Betty Everson, Menlo Park resident

 

Betty Christine Wolfe Everson, 83, a longtime resident of Menlo Park, died in Provo, Utah on Jan. 7.

Ms. Everson was born in Palo Alto and raised in Menlo Park, attending Las Lomitas Elementary School and Sequoia High School before graduating from San Jose State University with degrees in business and English, according to her family.

After marrying Idaho native Charles Everson in 1954, she made a home in Menlo Park, although the pair also lived in Saudi Arabia for three years during the 1980s and traveled the world four times. The couple celebrated 60 years of marriage in October.

Ms. Everson's community service included working with schools and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

She is survived by husband Charles; daughters Audrey Leonard and Deanne (James) Welch; sisters Beverley and Kathy Wolfe; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
