Amanda Elizabeth “Dot” Everett, 93, was born August 14, 1924 to the late John Dickens and Amanda Elizabeth Bryant Dickens in Tarboro, N.C. (Edgecomb City). She was predeceased by her husband, Oscar Everett, Sr.; three sisters and four brothers who affectionately called her “Baby.” She departed this life on October 19, 2017 at her home with her loved ones at her bedside. Amanda attended the North Carolina Public Schools and on August 27, 1945 she married Oscar Everett and they moved to Norfolk, VA. From this union she became the mother of 4 children. As Amanda would say, “I gave my life to God” at 12 years old when she joined Weeping Mary Church (Edgecomb City). In 1951 she joined Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church where she enjoyed and loved to worship, learned and served. She was a longtime member of the #2 Usher Board and she sung in the choir for a short time, but Sunday School was her Joy. Amanda worked at DePaul Hospital and retired after 31 years of loyal service. Amanda was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother. Amanda was a quiet, kind and generous woman who enjoyed the simple things of life. She loved caring for her family, traveling and going to church. Amanda leaves to mourn her passing her two daughters, Jean Everett of Norfolk, VA and Carolyn Davis (Homer) of Tyler, Texas; two sons, Oscar, Jr. of Norfolk, VA and Clayton Everett of Chesapeake, VA; eight grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, three sisters-in-law, Mary Dickens of Tarboro, NC, Irene Baker of Tarboro, NC and Janie Baker of Winter Park, FL (Frank) and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Frank & Janie Rae Baker Family, "Dot" was called out by Jesus Christ to live for Him. She remained faithful to Christ and honored Him. Her beautiful demeanor quietly demonstrated her love for Jesus Christ. Her faithfulness helped to encourage us to also want to personify our love, faithfulness, devotion and obedience to God and to Jesus Christ. We will meet her again with Jesus Christ and other believers. Love always, Frank & Janie Rae Baker

You were always kind and had great passion to serve the Lord. You are in a better place. Your memories will live on. One day, I will see you again.

Flo Jackson John Chapter14: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions:if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way he know. Going to miss my Aunt Amanda, who I always called Aunt Dot! I love you, but Our Heavenly Father loves you the best! I will see you again. Rest on Beautiful!
