I was born in Gridley on February 12, 1914 to Charles and LuCinda Hoobler. I grew up in Gridley and graduated form Gridley High School in 1932. I attended ISU (then ISNU) for 2 1/2 years. I worked in Springfield for the State of Illinois. After that, I worked for the Soldiers and Sailors Home in Normal. I was married in 1939 to Ervin Umland. We had three children. In 1965 we moved from Gridley to Eureka Springs, Arkansas where we lived for 30 years. I now live in Burt Village in Meadows.
