Geneva Oleta O’Bannon

Geneva Oleta O’Bannon was born March 13, 1923 in Pioneer, Texas to the late Joe and Jewel Satterfield. She passed away on March 12, 2014.

Geneva grew up in Gregton, Texas. She attended Pinetree High School where she met the love of her life, W. A. O’Bannon. They were united in marriage on June 19, 1942 in San Diego.

Throughout Geneva’s life she was very involved in many church activities and was devoted to her church family.

Geneva found solace in God’s word, was a “Prayer Warrior” and lived her daily life guided by her faith in God. But her true devotion was to her children and grandchildren. She was loved by many and loved many, and without a doubt was a beautiful angel on earth. Geneva has filled our hearts with a lifetime of loving memories.

Geneva was preceded in death by her husband, W. A. O’Bannon. She is survived by her children, Patrick G. O’Bannon of Redding, Calif., Douglas R. O’Bannon, Laura Lang and Russ W. O’Bannon all of Mariposa, a sister, Parthena D. Mesecher of Oklahoma, 10 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren.

A memorial service was held on March 19 at First Baptist Church in Mariposa. A graveside service was held on March 20 at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery in Gustine.
