Genevieve Leslie Davis Lancaster celebrated her 100th birthday on February 9, 2018 at The Oaks Assisted Living Center, surrounding by her family and friends. She was born in Lake Charles, LA, and grew up there, along with several other places such as Nashville, TN, St. Augustine, FL, and Pineville, LA, where her father was caretaker of National Cemeteries in those cities.
She married James L. Lancaster in Lake Charles prior to WWII and moved to Denver, CO, with her father while her husband went to war. They resided in Denver until February of 1959 when she, her husband, daughter, Ann, and son, Robert, moved to Mena (Yocana). She has been here in the area since.
She is blessed with her two children, two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
“After moving to town from Yocana following my father’s passing, she was very active as a volunteer in the Hospital gift shop and as a docent/volunteer at the visitor information center on Rich Mountain drive just outside of town,” said her son, Robert.
