In 1964 the young family moved to Dixon, Illinois due to a change of job by Robert and in 1967 another son, Rob, was born.  The couple moved several times between Dixon, Illinois and Decatur, Illinois as Robert’s job changed.  During this time Georgeanne ran a beauty shop from her home, but as the family grew eventually devoted herself to taking care of their family.
