Memphis, TN

Dorothy Robinson Everett, 90, died May 8, 2017. She was a resident of Trezevant Terrace Episcopal Home in Memphis, Tennessee.

She was born April 23, 1927 in Memphis, Tennessee, to the late Charles Allan Robinson and Mildred Bray Robinson. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, William Bailey Everett, who died in 2012.

Dot was a graduate of The Hutchison School and Southwestern College of Music (now Rhodes College) in Memphis.

She was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church and St. Edward Chapel at Trezevant. She was also a Sustaining member of the Junior League of Memphis as well as The Golden Bees alumnae organization at Hutchison.

Dot leaves four children, Robin Everett Stanford (Max) of Marietta, Georgia, William Bailey Everett, Jr. (Mary) of Collierville, John Allan Everett (Kathy) of Stuart, Florida, and Anne Everett Barton (Stephen) of Memphis. She also leaves four grandchildren, Bethel Thomas Hunt IV of Portland, Oregon, Julia Hunt Carpenter (Brad) of Dallas, Georgia, William Bailey Everett, III of Memphis and Sloane Tyler Everett of Tampa, Florida, as well as three great-grandsons, Carson Carpenter, Walker Carpenter and Bowen Carpenter of Dallas, Georgia.

Dot Everett was a vivacious, Southern lady with a warm and funny, very outgoing personality. A family member once said that her people skills were unparalleled.

Her true gift was her spectacular bluesy singing voice. Dot began singing at her parent's dinner parties at the age of 3, and she entertained family and friends her entire life.

Dot possessed an enormous capacity for love, and she put her children above all others. She was a devoted wife and mother who gave her all to her family.

Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will miss her tremendously, and their lives will never be the same.

The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the staff at Trezevant Terrace, Allen Morgan Health Center, and Crossroads Hospice for their care and devotion.

A memorial service will be 2 p.m., Monday, May 15 at St. Edward Episcopal Chapel at Trezevant Episcopal Home, with a reception following the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials, be sent to the Trezevant Foundation, St. John's Episcopal Church, or a .
