Ona Blaine's Death

It is with a sad heart that we report that Ona Blaine was called to meet the Lord on June 9, 2007.  After the surgery to amputate her lower leg, she just wasn't able to overcome the weakened condition she was in.  Her obituary is on the "News of the Family" page.  Our heart felt condolences to Robert, Phil, Linda and their extended family.

Robert's Death

With sad hearts, we again faced a great loss in our family when our beloved Robert Vernon Adams left us to join his wife, Ona Blaine, who preceded  him in death just this past June.  Robert had been living at the Veteran's Center in Hazard, Kentucky prior to his death on August 30, 2007.

Funeral Service for Robert was held September 2 at 11 AM at his family's church, First Church of God in Neon, Kentucky.  It was conducted by his pastor, Rev. Mark Wagoner.  Active Pallbearers were members of the Neon Volunteer Fire Department and Neon Community Lions Club, organizations that Robert was active in and supportive of.  He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of nearly sixty years, Ona Blaine.

Robert's obituary is here.


This is from Robert and Ona's original page.

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 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  where several generations of Ona's family, the Quillens, have attended.
