OBLANDER were married. To this union three children were born – Richard, Janice Marie, and Janet. Their two daughters died as infants. Several years later, Jack and Deborah joined our family.
Geneva was preceded in death by her daughters, Janice Marie and Janet; by parents, Homer and Elsie Eagon; brothers, Dennis, Herschel, and Orville; sisters, Alretta Eagon and Coeta Jackson. She is survived by her husband, Robert; by children, Richard Oblander and wife Linda of Shattuck, OK, Jack Oblander and wife Trish of Asher, OK, Deborah West and husband Bill of Newton, KS, and David Keeton of Colorado.
