Vincent Michael Van Overbeke was born on February 16, 1927, in Minneota, MN, to Arthur and Josephine (Jennen) Van Overbeke. When he was five, he moved with his family to a farm near Cottonwood. Vince graduated from Cottonwood High School in 1945. He served in the U.S. Army in Germany following World War II. On December 29, 1948, he was united in marriage to Lucella Thompson. The couple farmed near Cottonwood for a few years before moving to their farm north of Minneota in 1956 where they farmed and raised their family. In 1999, they retired and moved to Marshall. Vince belonged to the American Legion Post 199 of Minneota, the Taunton VFW, and Knights of Columbus. He enjoyed working together with his brothers to harvest crops in the fall, reading about history, fishing and playing cards. He especially enjoyed time with his children and grandchildren.

Vince died on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at the Prairie Home Hospice McLaughlin House in Marshall. He is survived by his wife, Lucella, of Marshall, children Bryan of Taunton, Craig of Shakopee, Keith (and Jane) of Marshall, Linda of Marshall, Susan of Marshall, Valerie (and Jeff) Annen of Cook, Barbara (and Tom) Spanier of Rogers, Lois (and Steve) Dellwo of Shakopee, Cyndy of Otsego, Mark (and Cathy) of Minneota, Scott (and Nikki) of Le Center, Steve of Forest Lake, 11 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, sister Audrey (and George) Bakker of Marshall, brother-in-law Richard Bot of Marshall, sister-in-law Delores Van Overbeke of Hanley Falls and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his sisters Phyllis Bot and Doris (and John) Labat, and brothers Francis (and Lucille), Ronald “Bud”, Jim (and Agnes), and Marlen (and Judy), and Jerome in infancy.


My Father
A Tribute by Linda Van Overbeke
My father was an important influence on my life. My father told me they were very happy I was born because I was the first girl. My parents sacrificed to raise twelve children. They wanted us to have an education and be successful. He was a small farmer and raised hogs, and his family and his faith were his life. He took us to church and catechism. We visited family, went fishing, played cards and board games, and read books. He loved history, and he read the entire set of the Encyclopedias from beginning to end. All of us kids worked together with him to pick rocks and pull weeds in the soybean fields.
He felt for us when we were sick. He thought about us before himself and he was always kind. My father lived a long successful life in the eyes of his family and his God. God looks at the heart. Good and faithful servant -- Well done!
