MARBLE ROCK, IOWA Graveside services for Inez Snowden Overby, 85, of 712 Bradford St., will be held at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at Hillside Cemetery with the Rev. Rosemary RohdeFrank of the Marble Rock United Methodist Church, officiating.

There will be no visitation as cremation has taken place. Reid's Funeral Chapel is in charge of arrangements.

Inez Dorothy Snowden was born June 29, 1912, in Barre, Vt., to Major Harold and Beatrice (Hanton) Snowden, and died Saturday (March 21, 1998) at North Iowa Mercy Health Center East, Mason City.

She was a graduate of the Burlington High School in Burlington, Vt., and soon after became secretary to the Chittenden County State's Attorney at Burlington. On Feb. 14, 1940, she was united in marriage to James F. Overby at Dorchester, Mass. To his union were born two children, Lynne and David.

Inez and Jim lived at various locations in the United States while he worked as a forester for the United States Government, and later serving in the armed forces. In 1947, the family moved to Marble Rock, where Jim taught in the Marble Rock Public School, and Inez worked as a secretary to the superintendent and helped with the makeup for the plays and Christmas pageants for 25 years. She was also the sponsor for the Hi Teens, a high school girls club.

She was a member of Nashua Chapter 218 Order of the Eastern Star, where she held several positions in that order, and a member of the United Methodist Church in Marble Rock.

Living family members include her son, David and his wife, Mary, of Dubuque; soninlaw, William Burcham of Seattle, Wash.; and two granddaughters, Abigail of Iowa City, and Daphne of Clinton.

She was preceded in death by her husband on Aug. 24, 1997; her parents; and daughter, Lynne, in 1990.

Those planning an expression of sympathy may direct memorials to the United Methodist Church or to the family.
