Everett Hines Roseberry, 79, passed away on April 11, 2021.
Born in Dennison, Ohio, on January 23, 1942, to Hazel and Everett Roseberry, Everett was the eldest of three children and began his professional career in Columbus, Ohio, as the neighborhood paperboy. Following his graduation from Columbus North High School, Everett first considered a career in the ministry. Ultimately, however, he chose medicine as his life’s work, intertwining his strong faith with the practice of medicine to further attend to the needs of his patients and their families. A graduate of The Ohio State University and Emory University, he choose to specialize in pediatrics because it provided him with the ability to know patients well and care for them over a long period of time. Selected to serve as Chief Resident at Emory University’s Egleston Hospital, he completed his training in 1978 and moved to Gainesville, Georgia, where, until his retirement in 2018, he cared for thousands of patients and contributed to the establishment of The Longstreet Clinic (TLC), one of the largest independent group medical practices in the state of Georgia. Over the course of his career, Everett served as Chief of Staff for Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), TLC President, and was the recipient of NGMC’s 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Beloved by both his patients and their families, Everett enjoyed his work immensely and was always delighted to hear from former patients who were now adults and often had children or even grandchildren of their own. From a practice management standpoint, he strongly believed that it was equally important to “hire the heart as well as the brains” of new staff, as “empathy comes from the heart and cannot be taught.” Dedicated to educating and mentoring young nursing staff, he also served as a medical instructor for the Pediatric Advanced Life Support program (PALS) at NGMC for over 30 years, work that he found highly rewarding.
Everett was a man of deep faith who believed in the power and grace of God. He was a member of the Lay Witness Mission group at St. Paul United Methodist Church, a board member of the Francis Asbury Society, and participated in medical missionary trips to Belarus and Russia.
Following his retirement, Everett loved spending time with family and friends. He thoroughly enjoyed many nature walk adventures with his wife in the Southern Appalachians, beachcombing with family on Hilton Head Island, gardening, encouraging other Parkinson’s Disease warriors through his Parkinson’s support group, and relaxing with his wife and sweet and faithful furry companions.
Known for his work ethic, compassion, and constancy, Everett was kind, patient, generous, and optimistic, always searching for the silver lining. He was a wonderful and irreplaceable husband, father, brother, grandfather, son, friend, and mentor. Although he will be deeply missed, the memory of his loving, encouraging, happy spirit will stay with us always. He is survived by his wife, Lin Roseberry of Flowery Branch, Georgia; daughter and son-in-law Laurel Roseberry and David Skinner of Gainesville, Georgia; daughter and son-in-law Heather Roseberry and Nathan Ohler of Dallas, Texas; daughter and son-in-law Jennifer and Ryan Roberts of Flowery Branch, Georgia; daughter and son-in-law Holly and Chad Reed of Flowery Branch, Georgia; sister Carol Lynn Roseberry of Pataskala, Ohio; sister and brother-in-law Marilynn and Elliott Ward of Lewis Center, Ohio; and six grandchildren.
A delayed memorial service is now planned to honor and celebrate Everett’s life at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, April 9, 2022 in the main sanctuary at Gainesville First United Methodist Church, 2780 Thompson Bridge Rd, Gainesville, Ga., The family will greet guests in The Gathering Room at the church following the service.
