1966 Aunt Luna & daughters Roberta & Gladys, & GHU -Oct.11

Gladys Hiestand Uible, aka "Grandma" or GHU was the youngest of five siblings, including one, "Fawley," who died as an infant.  Her two brothers lived in Hillsboro as adults, Harry on the family farm, and Dorsey.  Her only sister, Luna, born in December 1874, was 18 years older than Gladys.

Luna married Robert Glenn "Rob" Mitchell, 1869-1974, in February 1901 in Hillsboro. Following the wedding dinner they left for Mound City, Missouri, where they lived until moving to Columbia, Missouri in the 1920s. Aunt Luna died in 1970 at the age of 95.  She is buried in Memorial Park Cemetery in Columbia, Missouri.

Luna and Robert were the parents of six children, five daughters and one son.
