Arlene Josephine (Holden) Overson, age 76, of Holmen, WI, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Friday, April, 5, 2019 at Mayo Health System in La Crosse.

She was born on April 20, 1942 to Wilhelm and Shirley Holden. She married Gerald A. Overson on August 1, 1959 in La Crosse.

Arlene enjoyed camping, playing cards, spending time with family and friends and was always looking forward to the next holiday or celebration. Arlene was an in-home childcare provider for over 35 years.

She was a wonderful wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. As a child care provider, she was often a second grandma to many children she cared for.

In addition to her husband Gerald, Arlene is survived by four children Lori (Rick) Keil of Madison, Jerry (Brenda Pickle) Overson of La Crosse, Debbie (Ken) McMorrow of Holmen and Eric (Donna) Overson of Holmen; six grandchildren Kristina, Nicole, Zachary, Wyatt, Alexis and Kayla Overson; one great grandson Anthony Olson, one sister Marie (Bob) Richert of Sparta, one brother-in-law David Morrell and two nephews Jason and Travis Morrell all of NY and several cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Judith Morrell and Beverly Jean Holden.

Thank you to the Mayo Health System La Crosse and Rochester and Mayo Clinic Dialysis Unit Onalaska for their care over the last five years.
