Residence: Rapid City, SD, formerly of Williston, ND

Cleo Charlene was born to Ralph Waldo and Constance Julia (Monson) Overstreet on October 31, 1942 in Williston, ND in a taxi on her way to the hospital. She was one of 9 children in a close knit family. She was baptized in Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Alexander, ND on June 27th, 1946. Cleo attended a one room school house, some 2 1/2 miles away from her family’s farm house from the 1st through 8th grade. She was the only one in her grade until the middle of 8th grade.

Cleo loved living her early days at the family farm, she had many chores; bringing in the eggs, herding the cows, washing dishes and riding a horse to get the mail. She spent most of her summer days swimming in the pond, riding horses and bikes, catching frogs and turtles, climbing trees and reading books. In the summer of 1957, her parents sold the farm and moved to Williston where she graduated in 1960. Cleo would remain close to her high school friends throughout her entire life. She attended one year of college for interior design at UND Williston.

On June 25th, 1960, Cleo married Lee (Leland) Lowe, at First Methodist Church in Williston, ND. They had three children, Kipton Lyndle, Kimberly Dawn and Shannon Lee. They lived in Williston and Bismarck, ND, Kellogg and Post Falls ID, Renton and Seattle, WA. In 1967 they moved back to Williston. Cleo and Lee would be married for 47 years before Lee passed away in 2007. In 2016 she would move to Rapid City, SD.

Cleo worked at North Western Bell Telephone Company as an operator, Underwriters Bureau of Washington and twelve years at MDU. Before retiring she spent the last 25 years as a Broker Associate at Fredrickson’s Real Estate.

Cleo and Lee enjoyed retirement; they rented a condo on the ocean in Acapulco, Mexico. They were avid travelers, whether by plane, ship, car or motorcycle. They were especially fond of time by the ocean. One of her favorite memories were when they went snorkeling in Australia on the “Great Barrier Reef”.

She was a lifelong crafter. Getting together with sisters every year for craft sessions as well as belonging to craft clubs. Cleo enjoyed sea glass hunting, growing and crafting gourds, collecting old buttons and old woman's hats. Her favorite tv shows were Antique Road Show and Judge Judy.

Cleo always had a great attitude and was friendly to anyone she came in contact with.

In Cleo’s own words “I have lived a blessed life with great parents, siblings, children, grand-children, great-grandchildren and friends.”

Have such fond memories of Aunt Cleo. I remember always being excited when she'd come over to mom and dad's when we were young. Loved going to her house and she was always glad to see you! Man could she cook! She'd also go fishing with mom, grandma, the kids and I. Enjoyed being with her ad we cleaned out her basement for her move to Rapid City. She definitely loved crafting. She was working on gord masks the day before she went back to the hospital. I'm going to miss our weekly talks. May God comfort Kip and Shannon and all those that dearly loved her. My prayers are with you all.
Your loving niece.
