Also surviving are a step-son, Howard Martz of Ottumwa, a step-daughter, Mrs. Harry Montgomery of Pocatello, Idaho, 20 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, a brother, George Umbenhower of Melrose, and six sisters, Mrs. Adella Ritchey of Melrose, Mrs. Etta Duckworth of Chariton, Mrs. Grace Scott of Millerton, Mrs. Lester McDonald of Chariton, Mrs. Minnie Whipple of Des Moines, and Mrs. Fern Gerhart of Des Moines.
