Published in South Bend Tribune on July 1, 2012

SOUTH BEND - Joann Overton (Bobbitt), 56, a lifetime resident of South Bend, passed away Friday morning, June 29, 2012 at 1:25, in Memorial Hospital of South Bend, unexpectedly, following a brief illness. Joann was the daughter of Earl and Christine Bobbitt, who preceded her in death. Joann attended Wilson Elementary School, Navarre Middle School and graduated from Washington High School on June 1, 1975. She later took classes at IVY Tech. Joann was a great country music fan and sang semi-professionally before her marriage. She especially liked Alan Jackson. Joann married Richard Overton on June 26, 1976 and assumed care of his two sons, Geoffrey and Bryan. In 1983, Joann and Richard welcomed a daughter, Angela. Joann is survived by her husband, sons, daughter, many grandchildren and a great-grandchild. She also is survived by her sisters, Betty "Sue" Comeau, Linda (Randy) Smith, and Kathy Tylavsky; brother, Roger (Lynn) Barrett, and many nephews, nieces, great-nephews, and great-nieces. Beginning in her late twenties and up to her time of death, Joann was challenged by many health problems. However, a standard comment others had upon dealing with her or meeting her was that she had a most beautiful personality and always a smile. Joann belonged to and attended Oak Tree Community Church on Lynn Street in South Bend. Memorial gifts may be made to Oak Tree Community Church. Services will be held at St. Joseph Funeral Home, 824 S. Mayflower Road, at 12 noon on Tuesday, July 3, 2012. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until 12 noon that same day. Burial will immediately follow at Chapel Hill Cemetery in Osceola. Condolences for the family may be made at .
