Genevieve Renschler: Update
Roberts Brothers Funeral Home
Ponca City, Oklahoma


Genevieve Corbin Renschler, 97, of Ponca City, Oklahoma passed away July 4, 2011 at Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, Kansas

On October 8, 1913, Genevieve, the daughter of James Richard and Nira Fern Corbin, was born in rural Butler County near Augusta, Kansas. She was baptized at Central Baptist Church also near Augusta.

She graduated high school in Towanda, Kansas and attended Business College and Comptometer School in Wichita, Kansas. She then worked as a comptometer operator for Santa Fe Trailways in Salina, Kansas.

In 1936, Genevieve married Lester Renschler in Wichita, Kansas. The couple had three daughters: Suzanne, Nancy, and Patricia. In 1947, the family moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma where Lester and Genevieve owned and operated Central Typewriter Company until their retirement in 1979. In Ponca City, Genevieve was a member of PEO and DAR as well as Pioneer Porcelain Artists. She was an accomplished porcelain china painter, exhibiting and sharing her pieces with the family and friends. She also enjoyed golfing (making a “hole in one” much to the surprise of her husband), reading, knitting, and playing bridge.

Genevieve was preceded in death by her husband Lester; her parents; one brother; and four sisters.

Survivors include Devon and Suzanne Lyles; Nancy Nickles Bellew; and Oren and Patricia Beal. Genevieve has five grandchildren: Lisa and husband, Jerry Rackley; Michael and wife, Bobbi Lyles; Carrie and husband, Steve O’Hern; Cathy and husband, Terry Johnson; and Karen and husband, Andy Winn. She has seventeen great-children, three great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was known to all the grandchildren as “Monnie.”

Thank you Genevieve for loving us and being in our lives. We will all miss you.

Graveside services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 9, 2011 at Resthaven Memorial Park in Ponca City, Oklahoma with Rev. Roberta Schaffer officiating, directed by the Roberts Brothers Funeral Home, Inc. of Hooker, Oklahoma.
