Obituary for Peggy Juliet Everett

Peggy Juliet Everett of Camden/Wyoming passed away Friday, May 22, 2020 at home. She was 56.
Peggy was born in Milford, Delaware on July 11, 1963. She was the daughter of Patsy Ann Tripp Brown and George David Everett. Peggy is survived by her mother, Patsy A. Brown, her father, George David Everett; her sister, Paula Marie Everett and; her niece, Jessica Hengst; aunt and uncle, Loretta Tripp Martin, Charles C.K. Martin and their children, Elyse Inglese, Tina Martin and Max Inglese and many cousins.
She was preceded in death by her step-father, J. Albert Brown.
Peggy was a true child of God because of her disability. She was born with the disorder of Trisomy 18. Peggy was never able to speak and had a lot of respiratory problems. Peggy’s mother, Patsy, believed that her life would be shortened due to her diagnosis of Trisomy 18 but even with her disorder and her mother’s belief in God, Peggy was still considered a miracle baby even into adult life. Her diagnosis was done at a very early stage of discovering genetic disorders and it was made very clear that her life would be approximately 5 years. When she was born in 1963, the age of diagnosing disable adults was a part of the discovery of genetic disorders.
She had attended the John S. Charlton School until 1984. Peggy was accepted at the Woodside Day program, where she attended Monday through Friday under the supervision of many devoted and dedicated individuals on a day to day basic. Training for Peggy involved such routines as chewing, one on one feeding, arts and crafts, music appreciation, and field trips to the mall, movies, and Special Olympics. Peggy was a member of the Red Hat Society at the Woodside Program and she had many fun afternoons with the program. She loved music and had attended some ARC dances.
Peggy had many other special people in her life, such as Joy Hill who spent many hours bathing and helping her mother to get her ready on a daily routine. Also a number of special individuals such as her Sunday School Teacher, Jane Leverage Ohara, always loved Peggy in her own special way. Peggy was a long time member of Wesley United Methodist Church.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests contributions in honor of Peggy to either Wesley United Methodist Church or Woodside Day Program, Woodside, DE.
Special thanks to Delaware Hospice
Services will be private.
