Patricia Overby Obituary

Patricia “Pat” Ann Overby, 86, of Hermantown, MN, passed away on Monday, February 5, 2024, at her home.

Patricia was born in Duluth, MN, to Ralph and Margaret Berg on August 31, 1937. She graduated from Hermantown High School in 1955 and worked at St. Mary’s Hospital in registration for 36 years, before retiring in 2004. Patricia was a member of the Proctor Moose and supporter of UMD Athletics. She participated in many of her high school reunion activities.

Patricia had a big heart and caring of others. Her love of the Minnesota hotdish, and baking of Christmas treats were shared among family and friends as were her legendary dill pickles and spicy beans sought after. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed walking and cross-country skiing. She enjoyed community events such as the Tall Ships, the Rhubarb Festival, and parades in Hermantown and Duluth. She held season tickets for UMD men’s hockey and the Minnesota Vikings. She participated in league play and consistently earned bowling trophies and awards; her golf game was on par and bocce ball was spot on the Pallino. She never missed a prom - loved the Grand March and attended as many of the grandchildren’s sporting and music events and school programs as she could. 

She had a love for travel and joined in on many bus trips traveling to Branson for the Christmas Tour, Cape Cod in Massachusetts, the Canyons and Balloons Tour in Utah and Colorado, Christmas in Nashville, New England, New Orleans and the Old South, and to Washington DC for the Cherry Blossoms to name a few.  Airfare to Arizona, Cabo San Lucas, Florida, Mexico, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Utah, California, Hawaii, New York, Wisconsin - Mackinac Island and many more.

Patricia had a love for conversation and whether it be sitting in the sun with her family, special friends and neighbors or having coffee around the kitchen table, it didn’t matter. It was the sharing and caring among friends.

We will always hold Mom, Grandma, Granny and G-MA in our hearts with fondness and love.

Patricia was preceded in death by her son, Kevin Overby; and her brother, Gary Berg.
