Bettie Anne W. Everett, 57, potter, teacher

Bettie Anne W. Everett, a former Roland Park resident and potter, died Nov. 8 of cancer at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina. She was 57 and had moved to Chapel Hill, N.C., in 1987.

After her children began school here, she became interested in pottery and began taking courses and eventually built a studio with wheels and a kiln in the basement of her home.

Later, she expanded her studio and taught pottery-making. She and other potters formed the Mud Hens and held an annual Christmas sale of their works.

After moving to Chapel Hill, Mrs. Everett converted an old log barn on her property into a studio called the Roost.

Her work was regularly shown in Easton, Washington and Winston-Salem, N.C.

The former Bettie Ann Whitehurst was born in Rocky Mount, N.C., and earned a bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1959. Two years later, she married H. Spencer Everett Jr.

In Baltimore, she was active in the Junior League and the Guilford Garden Club, and served on the Women's Board of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

A memorial service is planned for 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Episcopal Chapel of the Cross, 304 Franklin St. in Chapel Hill.

In addition to her husband, survivors include a son, Wesley H. S. Everett of Cary, N.C.; a daughter, Martha Whitehurst Everett-Voelkel of Baltimore; and three grandchildren.
