Loraine D. Overton Died April 28, 2012. She was born April 29, 1923, in Windsor, North Carolina to the late Abel and William Hughes. She is predeceased by her husband, Marvin D. Overton. She is survived by two daughters; Sandra O. Hurst and her husband R. Stanley Hurst of Virginia Beach; Renee O. Cahoon of Chesapeake; her son, John M. Overton and his husband, Bill Roeder of Lewes, Delaware; and her grandchildren, Alexandra N. Cahoon and Taylor L. Cahoon, whom she loved very much and brought her great joy, as did all her children. She is also survived by four sisters, two brothers, and several nieces and nephews.
She loved her vegetable garden, which she planted and worked in every year of her life, and could not have done so, later in her life, without help from her nephew, Jimmy Pinner, who was always available to assist her, whatever her needs. It gave her great pleasure to share her vegetables with family and friends. According to her wishes, she will be cremated and there will be no Funeral. The family will receive visitors at her home in Chesapeake, Saturday, May 5th between 2:00PM and 4:00PM. Cremation Society of Virginia will be assisting Loraine’s family.
