It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Margaret Andrea Everitt, known to her friends as Meg, announces that she passed away on December 10, 2018 after a brief illness. Meg was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and grew up in Pinellas Park. She attended Sacred Heart Church and Elementary School where she was a member of the children’s choir and the band. She was a member of the youth group, and won the speech contest in grade five. Meg also volunteered at the school early each morning for years helping with the traffic. She knew everybody! Meg graduated from St. Petersburg Catholic High School where she lettered as an athletic trainer on the wrestling team. Her teammates appreciated her sharp memory, matching wit, and ability to keep score precisely. She threw herself wholeheartedly into things that had meaning to her. Whether feeding the homeless in Williams Park or participating in Right to Life marches in Washington, D.C., Meg cared -- and her family, friends, and so many strangers were the beneficiaries. After High School, Meg attended St. Petersburg College and worked in hospitality for Red Lobster, Rudy’s, Nickel City, Buffalo City, and Stone Soup. This is where Meg built her community. It is here that we see her legacy among the friends that so appreciated her deep love, acceptance, and appreciation of them. Meg was full of joy and had a contagious smile. She excelled at her job and made many dear friends along the way. Meg loved life and she loved sports. Her family and friends knew her affinity for the Michigan State Spartans, where her grandfather Roy attended. She loved the Tampa Bay area teams and mostly the Tampa Bay Rays. Meg enjoyed cooking and socializing; she was very supportive of others, friendly and fun to be around!
Meg will be remembered lovingly by her mother, Alice Marie Everitt along with her siblings George (Grace), Alex (Kim), and Philip. She will be fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews MacKenzie, Eli, Thomas, Ian, Jasper, and Aleigha. She was predeceased by her father, George.
