Morine was born to John Wesley and Bertie Ora (Gray) Overton on June 4, 1930, in Stuart.
She married Cleason H. McNutt on January 22, 1947, in Fort Smith, Arkansas. They lived in Plainview, Texas for a short period of time before returning to Stuart.
Morine and Cleason owned and operated a series of businesses, including M&M Land Company during the 1960s in Stuart. They then opened Rural Estates Mobile Homes in the early 1970s and had six locations across Eastern Oklahoma.
From 1972 to 1974, their business ventures expanded to an International Harvester Truck Dealership. As the business grew, so did their involvement in the Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship International Organization. This led them to be Lay Witness ministers in 55 countries around the world. They then transformed the Harvester dealership into Consignment Exchange - a used home and office furniture business which is still in operation today after more than 35 years. It now includes a 30-year U-Haul franchise, over 70 mini storage units and a metal-building franchise. Morine came to her business every day until being hospitalized on the 15th of October. In her 70s, Morine completed a GED and then attended classes at Eastern Oklahoma State College.
She was a loving wife to Cleason until his passing in 1999, a devoted mom to her three children and loved her family without reservation. She had a brilliant mind and was a tenacious businesswoman, but above all, she was a mighty woman of faith.
Morine was a member of the Lighthouse of Prayer Church in Arpelar.
Morine was preceded in death by her parents, John Wesley Overton Sr. and Bertie Ora Overton; husband, Cleason H. McNutt; brothers, Thomas Jefferson "T.J." Overton and Rayford Lee "Ray" Overton, an unnamed infant brother, and great-granddaughter, Katherine Pauline McNutt.
She is survived by sons, Mark McNutt and wife, Kathy, of Catoosa, and Max McNutt and wife, Winnie, of Arpelar; daughter, Cleora Rowell and husband, Skip, of McAlester; grandchildren, Kim McCarty and husband, Scott, Markey McNutt II and wife, Annah, Michael McNutt and wife, Adrene, Anthony Rowell and wife, Julie, Joshua Rowell and wife, Jessica, and Anna Marie Rowell; great-grandchildren, Seth Rowell and wife, Chancee, Hope Scott and husband, Hunter, Michael Chase McNutt, Calee Anne McNutt, Payton Davis, Ellie Dayne McNutt, Connor McNutt, Aidan McNutt, and Rory McNutt; great-great-granddaughter, Olivia Rowell; brothers, Bill Overton, of McAlester, and John Overton and wife, Lauretta, of Scipio; sisters, Greta Colvin and husband, Dewayne, of Shawnee, Norma Dessem and husband, Bryant, of Gold River, California, and Rose Shaw of Arpelar; sisters-in-law, Delores Stinson and Sue Overton, and numerous nieces, nephews, family members and friends.
