For Mary [Betsy] Eversoll, (nee Beth Griffin), a long illness is concluded.  

She lived from April 3rd, 1952 until called on February 14th, 2022.

Her childhood home was Charleston, SC with her parents, Jesse L. & Hilda Conner Griffin (both deceased) originally from Walton County, and her brother, Jesse Linley (Lancaster, CA.) and sister, Susan (Charleston, SC). 

 Betsy graduated from Converse College in SC later in life and had a teaching career in Walton and Newton Counties as a Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing teacher.  The student teaching part of her career was her great passion.

She was a former member of Eastridge Community Church.

Betsy passed away from complications of meningioma brain tumor disease.  She experienced abundant and prolific support from colleagues, relatives, friends and her sister. Below is a partial but significant acknowledgement of those who rendered Betsy assistance, friendship and affection during this extended period: Robyn Bailey, Hilda Abbott, Brenda Robinson & family, Donna Pottenger, JoAnn Cox, Cathy Stubbs, Linda Berry, Linda Bramhall, Kathy Sanders, Eileen Hietter, Ragen Cantrell, Linda Reagan, Carla Duncan, Laurie Gates & Aislin, Shari Thomas, Jeaneen & Cricket Rider, Diana Murtha, Cathy Sharp, Sabrina Ivey, Marcia Gilmore, Tirzah Griffin, Rosemary Erb & family, Linda Firebaugh & family, Gloria Berry & family, Madelyn Kreiger, Jimmy Conner & family, Frank Frantzen, Mark Eversoll, Joel Malcolm, Charlotte Wheeler, Harriett Brooks, Harriett Griffin, Ansel & Mary Carol Malcolm, the Mathis & Owens families, Semone Morgan & family, and Laura Farmer & family.  Sincerest gratitude to those not listed but who contributed consistent concern and many offerings of good cheer and nourishments.

Betsy was cared for throughout this past year by Abbey Hospice in nearby Social Circle.  Deepest gratitude is extended to Deb Watley, CNA, Baylee Castellana, RN, and Pam Heminger, RN, for home hospice care plus the in-unit nursing & CNA staffs as well as the social work and pastoral staffs.  The quality of her life was sustained because of the dedication, expertise, and compassion of these professionals.

Betsy was cremated.  An observance for her will be scheduled for early summer 2022.
