  1. My heart sank when I learned of Everine’s passing. What a wonderful woman. I met her the year my family decided to check out the Estherville Community Christian School. She became such an influential person in my life. She was such a supportive person in my sister’s and my education. Everine will be missed greatly and never forgotten. Love & prayers sent out to her family. God be with you.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Bradshaw’s passing. She was such a positive and encouraging influence in my life, while I attended the Estherville Christian School. I have so many wonderful memories of her, both in school and out of school. She was truly a treasure and had an amazing servant’s heart for God. I am so thankful that God placed her in my life and I know she will be rewarded in heaven.

  3. Everine was a wonderful, godly woman who had an enormous impact on our family’s life. She graciously and capably taught at and steered the Estherville Community Chistian School, impacting our two daughters at critical times in their lives. Both she and Leo were instrumental in the lauching and success of the school. I can still see her lovely smile and hear her joyful laugh. Thank you Everine and great is your reward in heaven.
