Obituary for Geraldine Banta (Lock)

Mrs. Geraldine (Lock) Banta, age 86, of Vevay, Indiana, entered this life on July 27, 1933 in Switzerland County, Indiana. She was the loving daughter of the late Ernie and Dorothy Marcella (Roeder) Lock. Geraldine was raised all over Indiana because her father was a teacher and attended the Vevay High School. She was a member of the Long Run Baptist Church. Geraldine was united in marriage on November 10, 1949 to the late Everett Ray "Dutch" Banta in Carrollton, Kentucky. This happy union was blessed with a daughter, Sharon. Geraldine and Everett shared nearly 59 years of marriage together until he passed away on April 20, 2008. Geraldine was formerly employed for 23 years for the US Shoe Factory in Vevay, Indiana until 1974, 1 year for the Versailles Extension Office, 3 years for the Census Bureau and then started farming with her husband. She was a former member of the Moorefield Homemakers Club and served on the Farm Bureau Board for several years. Geraldine enjoyed mowing her lawn, crafting and gardening. Geraldine will be remembered for her raspberry jelly, "the best you ever ate." Geraldine passed away at 4:30 a.m., Tuesday, December 31, 2019, at the Highpoint Health in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
