" Margreta Overbeck designed five nave windows at St. John's Grace Church on Colonial Circle, Buffalo. This is the church where Gordon Guthrie executed windows." - Donald Samick, owner J&R Lamb Studios

"Margreta Overbeck, Guthrie's pupil and protégé, is responsible for the design of these five windows ... Adding to the relationships of Guthrie and Overbeck is the fact that while she was a college student in Buffalo, Margreta worshiped at St. John's!" - Peter Bridgford, "St. John's Grace Episcopal Church: A Guide to Some of the Memorials," 2000

Overbeck's signature on the Simon-Matthias windows: "O" superimposed over a stick "m." "KK": Karole K. Pix assisted Overbeck on two windows. - Peter Bridgford, "St. John's Grace Episcopal Church: A Guide to Some of the Memorials," 2000
