Robert Vernon


Ona Blaine (Quillen) Adams

Update:  Since this page was published, we have lost both Robert and Ona. 

See their Updated Page

See their Memorial Page.

Now both retired, Robert and Ona live in Fleming, Kentucky.  They are the parents of three children:  Philip, Michael (deceased) and Linda Carol.  Philip and Linda live near their parents in Fleming.



Philip and Cathy have three children:  Allison, Michael and Jonathan.  Philip works for Kentucky Farm Bureau and Cathy is Guidance Counselor at Whitesburg High School. 



James and Linda (Adams) Collins have twin boys, named Stamper and Robert, after both grandfathers.  James and Linda felt one of them needed to stay home with their boys, so Linda is a nurse at Pikeville Methodist Hospital and James is a house-husband. 



While raising their family, Robert worked as manager of A & P Food Stores while Ona Blaine made women lovely in her beauty shop.  Ona is also a very gifted artist.  She had some art courses in college but family and work took up too much of her time to be able to give much attention to her art. 

After retiring, she took a few more lessons and has some beautiful paintings to show for it.  Until breathing problems made it necessary for him to stop, Robert spent his spare time in his woodworking shop turning out items they showed at craft shows.  Their family is very active in the First Church of God of Neon, Kentucky, where several generations of Ona's family, the Quillens, have attended.
