Ann Arbor Area Community News
Kay Everett, Detroit’s City Councilwoman described by the Freep as “the feisty, always colorful Detroit politician known for her love of hats and famous spats at the council table,” died Thursday evening of complications from kidney disease.
From the Freep’s Council to honor a silenced presence:
“No one will ever forget her,” said Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. “She left her trademark on the City Council. She stood in the gap on a lot of tough issues when no one else would stand in.”
Everett was one of Mayor Kilpatrick’s most vocal allies, and her death will likely leave the Council deadlocked until next November’s election.
A public viewing will be 3-9 p.m. Tuesday at Swanson Funeral Home, 14751 W. McNichols Road. On Wednesday, Everett’s body will lie in state noon-9 p.m. at Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ, 19190 Schaefer Hwy. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at the church.
