On Jan. 22, 2014, Grace L. Overman, 83 of Pella, unexpectedly left us to go home and be with the Lord.
Grace was born on Oct. 10, 1930, in New Sharon, the daughter of Max and Jeanette (Wanders) Huff. She went to the New Sharon Schools. After graduation, Grace went to work in Pella and Des Moines where she met Earl “Pat” Overman.
