Kathy was born July 10, 1950 in Webb, the daughter of Malvin Deward Tubbs and Juanda Faye Tubbs. She graduated from West Tallahatchie High School and attended Delta State University, where she received her B.S. and M.S. in Biology before marrying Boyce Frank Overstreet on August 19, 1972. The young family moved to Wayside, New Jersey in the fall of 1981.
Filled with compassion and interest in others, Kathy made friends easily. She loved cooking and traveling and always seemed to be planning her next trip to Italy with her friends or grandchildren. She gave of herself as much as she could, from sending food and goods to troops overseas and disaster victims, to praying for those less fortunate than her. Her heart was her gift to the world.
Kathy is survived by her husband, Boyce, and her three daughters Nicki Overstreet Brandimarte, Kathryn Overstreet Mazza and Hallie Overstreet Hinchliffe; her mother, her younger brother, Larry Tubbs and seven grandchildren.
Services and burial was held on February 6, 2014. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Salvation Army or Mary’s Place by the Sea, 15 Broadway, Ocean Grove.N.J. – a healing center for women with cancer.
