NORTH VERNON, Ind. — Rose Acre Farms is remembering long-time Team Member Deloris Everroad, who passed away on Thursday, April 30.

Deloris served at Rose Acre Farms’ Jen Acre Egg Farm east of North Vernon for 43 years in a variety of roles. During her tenure, Deloris worked in Quality Control, Night Sanitation, was a Jen Acre Plus team member and, most recently, guard shack tenant.

Deloris was known by her coworkers as a very giving person with a happy go lucky attitude. She oftentimes would have pieces of candy to share with her coworkers.

As a team member for over 40 years, Deloris was a committed and dependable piece of Jen Acre’s daily operations. 

“She was always very dependable and committed to Rose Acre 100 percent,” said Mike Hines, Complex Manager for Jen Acre Egg Farm. “You never had to worry about her showing up to work or being on time. She was always willing to help out with anything you asked.”

While Deloris was a vital part of Rose Acre Farms from a business perspective, her positive attitude and giving nature will be missed by many.

“She was just a great person,”  said Hines. “We are really going to miss her.”
