Maggie was born March 20, 1938 in St. Louis, Missouri, the daughter of Burke M. and Ruby (Allen) Shea. She married Thomas D. "Perky" Overbeck on October 12, 1963 and he preceded her in death in 2011. Maggie was a long-time member of St. Francis Catholic Church in Teutopolis.
Maggie was a born city-girl, but after marrying the love of her life, she easily claimed small-town Teutopolis as her home. There, she found loving and supportive in-laws, family, and formed friendships that would last her a lifetime.
Maggie was outgoing and spunky, and she did not know a stranger. She was loyal to her family, friends and community. She was generous and free with her thoughts, words and deeds.
She enjoyed working at JC Penney's, dining out, playing Bingo, and being involved with the Teutopolis C. D. of A. She loved visiting with her family.
Maggie is survived by her daughters, Laura (Gordon) Martin of Effingham and Cheryl (David) Shumate of Westville; sons, Tony of Teutopolis, Jeff (Debbie) of Dieterich and Scott of Teutopolis; grandchildren, Alex, Taylor, Macy, Cody, Caleb and Jesse; step-grandchildren, Jennifer, Amber, Shelly and Joshua; great-grandson, Sawyer; step-great-grandchildren, Jasmine, Trinity, Kalin, Koby, Devon, Chloe, Luna, Brayden, Jeron, Malik and Myla; and brother-in-law, Glen Kummer of Nashville, TN; sister-in-law, Sr. Nadine Overbeck, Mary Maksl and brother-in-law, Gerald Overbeck.
Maggie was preceded in death by her parents; husband; grandson, Thomas J. Overbeck; three brothers, three sisters and many beloved in-laws.
