Birth: Feb. 25, 1889

Cumberland County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jun. 12, 1954

Rella Black was born on 25 Feb 1889 in Toledo, Cumberland County, Illinois. Her parents were David and Louisa (Reed) Black. She had 8 Siblings (Ora (Van Horn), Alfred, Emma (Connors), Serepta (Died in infancy), John, William (died as a young child), Eletha (Rowland), & Mabel (Hire/Hart). In addition, she had 4 Step-brothers and sisters (James, Thomas, Charles, and Mollie)

In her early years, she lived with her parents in Union Township in Cumberland County, Illinois. Since their servicing post office was Diona (located in the upper portion of Union Township near Coles County), I assume they lived close to that location, but exact location is unknown. Around 1910, she was listed as living at the Perkins family house in Mahomet, Illinois as a possible live in servant. According to her father's obituary, they moved to Champaign in Champaign County around 1914. It appears she lived with her stepsister Mollie until her marriage to Fred in 1917. According to the 1918 city directory, they were listed as renting a house in Champaign, Illinois next to Fred's Parents house. It appears they lived at this address until around 1925. According to city directories, they apparently moved 4 times over a 4 year period. It is unclear where they lived after 1941, but according to their obituaries they lived on Rt 2 in Urbana, Illinois. She may have lived at this address until her death in 1954.

She married Fred Henry Rubow on 16 Jan 1971 in Fountain City, Indiana. She had 4 children with Fred (Lloyd, Pauline, Frieda, Margaret)

She was 65 when she passed away on Saturday, 12 Jun 1954 at Burnham City Hospital in Urbana, Illinois. Funeral services were held Tuesday, 15 Jun 1954 at Renner Funeral Home in Urbana. She is buried in Section 15, Lot 8, Space 9 of Woodlawn Cemetery in Urbana, Illinois with her husband and Son, Lloyd.
