Frances Olsson Overstreet ’49

Frances Olsson Overstreet ’49, September 4, 2003, in Alexandria, Virginia, from pancreatic cancer. Frances attended Reed, then moved with her family to New York, New Delhi, Moscow, California, and Pennsylvania, before settling in the Washington, D.C., area in 1963. For nearly 20 years, she worked as an administrator at the Labor Department, in a senate office, and at the Conservation Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization. Following that time, she worked in sales and office administration in Florida and Texas. In 2000 she moved back to Virginia, and although she suffered from macular degeneration, Frances was active in Fairfax County programs for the blind, among other organizations. She is survived by her son and daughter, Leslie K. Overstreet ’71. Her husband, Gene D. Overstreet ’49, died in 1965.
