Patricia (Patty) vom Lehn Overman

Patricia vom Lehn Overman, (Patty) of Red Bank, NJ, passed away on Tuesday, January 23, 2024. Born in Cincinnati, OH to Stanley and Doris vom Lehn, Patty lived most of her life in the Monmouth County, NJ area. 
Patty married her late husband Bill in 1961 and they were married for 58 years until his passing in 2019. She is survived by their three children: William, Steven, and Kristin as well as her brother Garry. Patty taught in both the Rumson and Fair Haven school systems for 30 years giving hundreds if not thousands of children their first lessons in Math and Reading. After retiring from teaching, Patty immersed herself in other pursuits, among them: Garden Club, Family and Child Services, Bible study at St. Georges, attending The Two River Theater and also enjoyed going to the beach and playing Dominoes with friends.
Patty was active in the Fair Haven community as well. She was a Girl Scout and Brownie leader while Kristin was growing up. She helped with the 50/50 at the Fireman's Fair as well as serving food there,  She had a great relationship not only with her own friends, but those of her children; many of whom fell into the habit of reflexively calling her "Mom" when spending time in the Overman home. Her kind and generous nature enabled her to make friends easily and her smile never failed light up a room. She will truly be missed by those who knew and loved her.

Visitation will be Thursday, February 1st from 6 to 9 pm at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, NJ. Funeral Service will be on Saturday, February 3rd at 11 am at St. George's By the River, 7 Lincoln Ave, Rumson, NJ. A reception will follow at the church after the funeral service concludes. In lieu of flowers, donations to Family and Child Services, Garden Club of Fair Haven, c/o Lee Davidson, 11 First St, Fair Haven, NJ 07704, and St. George's by the River will be appreciated.
