  • The North Mississippi Gem and Mineral Society recently lost two of their founding members, George and Rena Everett.  George and Rena were also members of the Mississippi Gem and Mineral Society of Jackson, MS and the Memphis Archeological and Geological Society of Memphis, TN.  Both Everetts were active in the American and Southeast Federations of Mineralogical Societies and actively mentored and promoted activities involving junior members.   We are all very saddened by their passing.  They both will be greatly missed, as they touched so many lives.
