Marjorie Marie was born on January 16, 1950 at St. Lukes Hospital, Aberdeen to Donald A. and Margarette (Larsen) Clocksene.  She was baptized at the Groton United Methodist Church on March 23, 1951 and later confirmed in 1964.  Marjorie attended school in Groton and graduated in 1968.   On July 11, 1968, she was united in marriage with Roger E. Overacker at the Groton United Methodist Church.   Following their wedding, they moved to St. Maries, Idaho, where they were blessed with two children.

In 1975, they returned to Groton and Marjorie began her medical career at Colonial Manor Nursing Home.  She also worked for Home Health, owned a ceramics shop, and worked at the Groton Independent Newspaper.  Marjorie started college in 1986 at Presentation College and graduated with a nursing degree in 1989.  She worked as a registered nurse on 4th surgical floor at Avera-St.Lukes until her retirement in February of 2013.

Marjorie was an active member of the Legion Post #39 Auxiliary, the Groton Garden Club, P.E.O. Chapter AC, United Methodist Women, and as a member of the UMC Board.  She also belonged to the Tuesday Morning Bible Study and Friday Morning Coffee Group.  Marjorie’s greatest love was her family.  She spent countless hours scrapbooking, doing family history, and organizing photos for future generations.  She enjoyed helping her grandchildren with homework, teaching them to cook/bake, working in her flower garden, and canning fall produce.  

Celebrating her life is her husband of 55 years, Roger; her children, Angela (Shane) Johnson, Jesse Overacker (Stacey Wellnitz); grandchildren, Sterling, Faith, and Luke Johnson, KayLynn, Emily, and Huntley Overacker; her sister, Dona (Merle) Higgs; two first cousins, Marilyn Clocksene, and Kent Sckerl along with many dear in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
