Genevieve Bratton was born Sept. 28,1917 in Darlington. She attended business school in Indianapolis and worked there for several years. She married Archibald Wahlman on June 6, 1942.

They lived in Advance, and then on a farm near Jamestown, until they retired to Bonita Springs, Fla. in 1993, where she lived until 2012 when she moved to St. Louis to be near her son Michael.

She was employed for several years as legal secretary for Parr, Richey, Obremskey and Morton Law Offices of Lebanon. She was a member of the Jamestown United Methodist Church.

The family will have a memorial and gathering later this summer on the family farm near Jamestown to celebrate her life and that of Archibald as well.
