Her son Grant Everson is being held at the Carver County jail on suspicion of murder.
Everson was well-known in Chaska. She was training to become a volunteer rescue diver for the sheriff's department. She was always busy with church and community groups. She treated friends to vegetables plucked from her back yard.
Nancy Everson sold AFLAC insurance with her husband from their home office. She was active in the Lake Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists church in Shorewood and helped out with area Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops when her children were younger.
"She was an amazing person," said Gauer, who counted Everson among her closest friends. "One of the most high-energy, empathetic and compassionate people you know. She was very passionate about everything she did."
The news rattled the congregation at Lake Fellowship, which dedicated its Sunday morning service to Everson.
"Our group is small," said church member Terry McGlynn. "We're all grief stricken."
