Sandra "Sandy" Overcash

d. September 27, 2022

Sandy Overcash, better known as “The Bolt Lady”, passed away at her residence on September 27, 2022.
Daughter of the late Willard and Margaret Overcash, she was a proud graduate of the Celeste Henkel Class of ’65. She proudly worked with her Dad at Overcash Machine Shop for 28 years. She worked for Elmer’s and Piedmont Fasteners but has worked for Interstate Bolt and Mid-State Bolt for the last 20+ years, where she got her nickname “The Bolt Lady”.
Thanks to all of her customers that she helped fix your weed eater, trailer, car, lawnmower or whatever it was, it always put a smile on her face when she told us how she helped you fix something. Thanks to all that have shared stories of her fixing or finding something that no one else could. Her other joy was baking cakes. If she knew you, she probably baked a cake for you at some time whether it was a birthday, wedding, anniversary or a death in your family.
In lieu of flowers you can send donations to Hospice of Iredell County, or you can donate to cover funeral expenses at .
She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law Clyde “Jr.” Shaw, and an extra special aunt, Betty Sharpe.
