Rock Springs Miner, Feb 24, 1946

Funeral services for Mrs. James Overy Sr., 92, resident of Rock Springs for nearly 65 years, will be held at 2 o’clock this afternoon at the L.D.S. church. Bishop Lyman Fearn will conduct the services, and burial will be in the Overy family plot in Mountain View cemetery.

Mrs. Overy, who had been in ill health for several months, died Tuesday at Wyoming General hospital. She made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Jake McDonald at 616 Massachusetts avenue.

Elizabeth Burton was born Dec. 2, 1853, in Codnor Park, Derbyshire, England, where she spent her early life. She was married March 31, 1872, to James Overy, the marriage taking place in Nottinghamshire. The couple lived in England until 1881, when they came to Rock Springs in May of that year. Mr. Overy died in 1935 in Salt Lake City, where the couple were making their home temporarily at that time.

Mrs. Overy is survived by four sons, two daughters, 50 grandchildren, 125 great-grandchildren, 24 great-great-grandchildren and one great-great-great-grandchild. Her sons are Thomas and James Overy, both of Rock Springs; Edward Overy of Superior, and John Overy of Nampa, Idaho. Her daughters are Mrs. McDonald and Mrs. Denver Hysell, both of Rock Springs. Four children preceded her in death, Frank Overy, Elizabeth Overy Ryder, Emma Overy and an infant daughter, Anna.
