Alice Mary Daily Lefler Overbey

Place of birth: Norwood, Minnesota

Alice Mary Daily Lefler Overbey was born to George & Verdilla (Schellenger) Daily on December 5th, 1925 in Norwood, Minnesota. Named for her father’s sister, she was the youngest of seven children.

Alice was married to Henry (Hank) Roberts Lefler on March 9, 1946. They had four children. Their son Gerald (Jerry) drowned at the age of 2. Alice and Hank divorced in 1952, and in 1959, she married William Lavern Overbey. Alice and Bill had two children. She and Bill separated when the children were young, and she raised the children while living with her brother Harold in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, for many years. Her sister Myrtle and her husband Elmer lived across the street and Myrtle was instrumental in helping raise the children.

In 1987, after the children had grown and moved on to raise families of their own, Harold passed away. Alice and Myrtle (long since widowed) bought a house in Minnetonka Minnesota and Alice’s son lived with them.

Myrtle passed away in 1998. Alice remained in the house in Minnetonka with her son for several more years before they moved to Chaska. Minnesota

Alice passed away just a couple of months shy of her 90th birthday, at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.

She was preceded in death by her parents and all six siblings, and her son Jerry. She is survived by five children as well as many grand children and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
