PENNIE DALE EVERHART, 77 of Las Vegas, NV passed away in Hospice Care Sunday, February 5, 2023. She was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2015 and battled hard against MG.
Pennie is a Bergholz native. She played accompany piano for Mr Legg at Springfield HS, played with Jan Dillon at the Bergholz Presbyterian Church including many Christmas Cantatas and loved the Gaither style gospel music. She matriculated at West Liberty University where she was involved in the theatre productions.
She played for the funerals at the old Everhart Funeral Home in Bergholz and Richmond which she started with her husband, Wayne in 1976. Their funeral homes were purchased in 2011 by Dan Bove, Jr.
Pennie was an avid reader and owned and operated the Paperback Palace in Richmond for 5 years. Her home was filled with ceramic pieces she created with Carol Tubaugh and for years she was with a card club.
In Las Vegas since 2006, Pennie was with the Grace Presbyterian Church Ladies Group called GIFTS and a volunteer with the Amazing Grace Ministry feeding and clothing the homeless. She absolutely loved the sun, her pool and the Southwest flavor.
Pennie was born to the late Dale and Ruth (Shultz) Palmer November 10, 1945. Except for her brother, Bob Palmer, she is preceded in death by most of her Bergholz family.
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Wayne Everhart and her daughter, (Heather) Noell Everhart.
