Sad word of loss of Jan Campbell Overstreet

The numbers of deaths from the Coronavirus just got more personal to many in Adair County.

A popular member of the Walmart management team, a dear family member, a friend and a singer who appeared every November to sing for Veterans, died Thursday morning after having tested positive last Saturday.

Her performing partners and friends said, "Jan Overstreet will be remembered by all of the Dream Depot group as our VP, a wonderful entertainer who loved her community with a never ending passion. She would help any person or charity she was able to, a Christian woman, a friend and a loving family member to us all. She could be counted on to help us anytime, any way, anywhere. We are deeply saddened."

Fellow singer and friend Yulanda Bradshaw said, "She was good to me and always went above and beyond for her friends. She was warm, welcoming and had a great faith in humanity. She helped me to realize I have to do what's best for me and stand for it even when I have to stand alone. I'll never forget that conversation and I'll carry with me as always."
