Obituary for Anna Marie Overton

Anna “Boots” Kyzer Overton passed away on Sunday, December 31, 2017, in Sanford, NC at the age of 86. Anna was born in Hamlet, NC on August 9, 1931 to Malcolm and Ida Kyzer. The Kyzers were charter members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Hamlet. After graduating from The Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina, Anna began a career in teaching that took her to Sanford where she met her husband, David Snyder Overton. They were married in 1957, which was the beginning of a long and happy union. Anna became a member of Trinity Lutheran Church shortly after moving to Sanford, where she raised her family, sang in the choir, and continued faithfully attending services throughout the remainder of her life.

Anna worked for many years as a teacher with the Lee County School System primarily teaching kindergarten. Her love for teaching continued even after her retirement as she helped educate her grandchildren. During her retirement, she developed an interest in art and began painting as a hobby. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband and sister. She will be remembered for the warmth and kindness she showed others.

Living to cherish her memory are three sons, David Overton, Jr. and wife Tammy, John Overton and wife Terry Ann, and Joseph Overton and wife Wendy. Also surviving are her eight grandchildren, Kellan Overton, Jenna Overton, Forrest Overton, Landry Overton, Brooks Overton, William Overton, Michael Overton, and Evelyn Overton, and one great-grandson, Levi Lewandowski. In addition, twenty-one nieces and nephews survive. She was preceded in death by her husband David, daughter Virginia, and sister Mildred Carter.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 2:00pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Sanford with Pastor Tim Martin officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church at 525 Carthage Street Sanford, NC 27330.
