Everly Claire Stallings was born July 17, 1930, in Cherokee, Alfalfa County, Oklahoma, to Ellis Earl Stallings and Mary “Lillian” Grossman Stallings Fisher.  Everly resided in Cherokee until she was 10 years old, when she moved to Riley, Kansas, with her parents, two sisters, Joann and Sally, and brother, Frankie.  Everly attended Guymon High School in Guymon, Oklahoma, where she was involved in Rainbows, Glee Club, Band and numerous other social organizations.

Everly married Wilson “Dale” Haynes on June 27, 1948, in Guymon.  After their marriage, both Dale and Everly completed their bachelor’s degrees in education at Oklahoma Panhandle A&M College in Goodwell, Oklahoma. From 1951-1952, they worked together for one-year teaching at Boise City, Oklahoma, when Dale was drafted into the Army to serve during the Korean War. In 1952, Everly moved with Dale to Pennsylvania, where Dale continued to serve in the military and Everly worked as a buyer for a prestigious department store.

Dale and Everly returned to their careers as teachers starting in 1955. They moved to Telluride, Colorado, in 1960, where they lived with their children, Steven Dale, Jeri Vonne, Gene Randall “Randy,” and Lynn Ellis. Dale passed away in June 1971, and Everly moved to Norwood, Colorado, in April 1989. She passed away in her beloved Norwood home on July 16, 2020, the day before her 90th birthday.

Everly taught first grade, kindergarten, and English, having a long career in Boise City, Hugoton, Kansas, Telluride and Ridgeway, Colorado. During her distinguished teaching career, Everly touched hundreds of lives. Everly was known and beloved by people throughout Colorado and beyond.
