Remembering Ruth Everhart

Mrs. Ruth Everhart was laid to rest next to her husband on Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 in the Riverview Cemetery. Autumn colors were at their peak on this sunny, breezy and pleasant day. She served the National Weather Service as a Cooperative Weather observer for Seymour for nearly 65 years.

As a tribute to Mrs. Everhart’s dedication and legacy, her pallbearers were from the National Weather Service Office at Indianapolis. She received posthumously the State of Indiana’s first “General Albert J. Myer Award” for serving 65 years as a Cooperative Weather Observer.
