Carmen Therese Overby, age 82, left this earthly life to go to her home in Heaven prepared for her by our Lord Jesus Christ early Tuesday morning, September 15, 2015 at Good Samaritan Home in St. Croix Falls, WI.
Carmen was born the eighth of ten children to Ralph and Eulalia Thompson on April 2, 1933 in Amery, WI. Carmen was baptized and confirmed her faith at St. Josephs Catholic Church in Amery. Carmen grew up in Amery living upstairs of the Thompsons blacksmith shop with her large family. Summers were spent swimming in the area lakes and music was a staple in the Thompson family. Many Saturday nights were spent with family and friends dancing at her home. Carmen had many jobs during her youth from babysitting to cleaning houses. Carmen graduated from Amery High School in 1951, where she excelled in band playing the Baritone and participating in many clubs and organizations. Carmen went on to Radiology School in St. Paul, MN and earned her Radiologist Technician Certificate in 1953.
Carmen married John (Jack) Overby on February 5, 1955 and moved to Milltown where Jack managed the Co-op feed mill. To this young family five children were added: Mark, Scott, Thomas, Margaret and Kirsten. Carmen was a stay-at-home Mom and held several jobs outside the home over the years. She worked at the Nursing Home in Centuria, Auto Stop in Milltown and bookkeeper for the Co-op fertilizer plant. She also worked the voting places for local elections for many years.
