Aniceta Lillian Overocker, 93

Ceta was born Sept. 4, 1925, in Meyer, Iowa, to Arthur and Louise (Weber) Durben. She approached all things in life with a kind and gentle spirit. She and Kenny danced the years away well into their eighties. She was most happy working in her flower garden, where everything flourished under her loving touch. Martha Stewart didn’t have anything on her.

She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
