Overton died at Tranquille in 1957, noted as a retired art teacher. Tranquille was a sanitarium west of Kamloops, where people with respiratory problems such as tuberculosis were sent to recover in the dry desert air. Overton's birthdate, place of birth, and parent information were all listed as "not known" which is quite unusual.
