Mrs. Lorina Everett Skiver age, 66 of Dahlonega, Georgia passed away Thursday, May 9, 2019 at Northeast Georgia Medical Center after a courageous battle against breast cancer. Lorina was born in Maine on April 22, 1953 to the late Mr. Morgan Douglas and Shirley Mary (Rossignol) Everett. Lorina had a nurturing heart and was blessed with a husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to care for. She loved to have her whole family on her porch enjoying a meal, reminiscing, laughing and loving each other. Beyond her own family she was well known for rescuing anything that needed rescued; human or not if someone or something needed taken care of she would bring it home and nurture it back to health. It was a rare occasion to see her without a baby on her hip, or her hands at work preparing a meal. When she did have a free day she and her husband Marty or as she always called him "Charlie" would escape to the North Georgia Mountains on their Harley's. Marty and Lorina were private people and wished not for a large service. Together they decided their children would complete their wishes as a family when her day came. Lorina has joined her husband Martin Eugene Skiver; a sister Peggy Sue Everett and a son-in-law Danny Evans in Heaven. She leaves behind her children; daughter Lynn Evans of Cleveland, Georgia; daughter and son-in-law, Peggy and Jason Truelove of Gainesville, Georgia; daughter, Michelle Funderburk of Dahlonega, Georgia; son Steven Skiver of Jasper, Georgia; brothers Douglas Everett and Roger Everett along with 21 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to a cancer organization of your preference.
