Robert and Ona's
Now both retired,
Robert and Ona live in Kentucky. They are the parents of three children:
Phillip, Michael (deceased) and Linda Carol.
Phillip and Linda live near their parents.
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 and James is a
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 where
several generations of Ona's family, the Quillens, have attended.
