Margaret Ann “Meme” Everett, 54, of Denham Springs, was peacefully called home to our Lord on Dec. 31, 2018, surrounded by loved ones at Clarity Hospice in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Born on Dec. 3, 1964, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Margaret’s life was fulfilled by her children and grandchildren — they were her most prized possession. Margaret was kind-hearted, generous and had a servant’s heart. She never met a stranger and was loved by all. Margaret enjoyed camping, fishing, boating, watching TV, and spending time with her friends and family. She had a knack for life and a taste for adventure. Her fondness for Olive Garden and caramel frappes was only surpassed by her uncanny appreciation for crocs, long phone calls, four-letter words, and Ole Miss football—that latter two of which simultaneously go hand-in-hand for any true Ole Miss fan. Margaret is preceded in death by her mother, Madileane Hall Everett of Jackson, Mississippi, and brother, David Everett of Byram, Mississippi. With both of whom, she is now celebrating eternity, most likely dancing—happy and pain free. “Meme’s” life will forever be cherished by one daughter, Sandy Castle and her significant other, PJ; one son, Travis Castle and his wife, Alli; two stepchildren, Tad Castle and Alyssa Castle; and eight grandchildren, Adam, Triston, Gaten, Kirsten, Bailee, Connor, Kade, and Carter. She will be greatly missed by and fondly remembered by many friends, neighbors, and extended family. A Celebration of Life will be held at First United Pentecostal Church, Bethel Chapel on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, from 6-8 p.m. Services will begin at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be donated Margaret’s favorite charity: Susan G. Komen. Tribute Cards can be mailed to 1220 S. Range Ave, Denham Springs, LA 70726.
