With the help of the Lord, we will try to write the obituary of Samuel Everage. Sam was born on July 26,
1920 to Tom and Nancy Mullins Everage and died February 17, 1980, making his stay here on earth 59 years, 6
months, and 22 days.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Tom and Nancy Everage; 2 brothers, Burn and George; and 1
sister, Leona Everage. He leaves to mourn his passing 3 sisters, Myrtle Calton, Ollie Mullins, and Arizona Smith.
Sam met Nettie Hudson and a courtship soon began, before long they knew they were meant for each other
and they were married on November 11, 1950.
To this union were born 8 children, three sons, Kenneth, Harvey, and Tommy, and 5 daughters, Wilma,
Sheila, Christine, Treva, and Nancy. They all mourn his death.
Sam worked hard and provided for his family as best as he could for as long as he was able. He was a
friend to everyone and everyone was his friend. Seemingly, with his family and friends all around him,
something was missing. He knew he needed a Savior and he started praying and prayed until his burdens were
lifted and hope filled his soul. He has told Bro. James Everage and Bro. Cecil Lucas of the good things that
God had done for him. He could sit for hours and talk on the Bible. With this we feel our loss is Heaven’s gain.

Epilogue: Since Sam’s death, his 3 sisters, Myrtle, Ollie, and Arizona all have gone on to be with him. He now
has 5 beautiful grandchildren: Kenneth Christopher, Tina, Brian, and Whitney. Papaw Sam (as they
affectionately call him) would be proud of the love these children have for him, even though they never got to
On July 13, 2001, his beloved wife, Nettie was called to take her place by his side and they are now
together, smiling so happily as they sit by the Throne of God.

Nettie Hudson Everage
With a saddened heart and by the help of the Lord, I will try to write the obituary of our loving mother, Nettie
Hudson Everage. Hettie was born on May 1, 1925 at Smithsboro, KY to I.V. and Melda Hudson and departed
this life on July 13, 2001, making her stay here on earth 76 years, 2 months, and 12 days. She was preceded
in death by her husband, Samuel, and her parents, I.V. and Melda Hudson. She was also preceded in death by
3 brothers, Lauza, Burley and Cornelius; 3 sisters, Corna, Ethel, and an unnamed infant. She is survived by 3
brothers, Bruce Hudson, Oscar Hudson, and R.B. Hudson, and 2 sisters, Allie Williams and Thelma Richardson.
On November 11, 1950 she married Samuel Everage and to this union were born eight children, Wilma,
Sheila, Christine, Treva, Nancy, Harvey and Tommy all of Amburgey, Kentucky, and Kenneth of Mousie,
Kentucky; five grandchildren, Kenneth Wayne, Christopher Brian, Tina Marie, Brian Dale,, and Whitney Jade, all
of Amburgey, Kentucky; 2 sons-in-law, Wayne Jones and Larry Dunn; and 2 daughters-in-law, Pamela Everage
and Tammy Everage. Nettie welcomed everyone into her home and always had a table full of food for people
to eat. She was never satisfied with 2 or 3 dishes, she always wanted a full course meal on the table. Trace
Fork of Irishman is saddened with the loss of a dear and precious Mother and friend. She will be greatly
missed by everyone. She done without so many things for herself so that she could give her children everything
they needed. Although Mommy didn’t belong to a church, the way she lived and talked during the last few days
of her life about seeing angels and describing things she was seeing, we believe she is in the arms of Jesus.
She is in the House of the Lord with Daddy smiling down on us. It is going to be so hard going on without
Mommy, but by the help of the Lord we will meet again. Mommy would want us to draw closer together and
help each other. Most of all she would want us to get Jesus into our lives. Mommy, we’re going to miss you,
but we feel our loss is Heaven’s gain.
