Narrative:

     Catherine Angelia Glabe was born on 25 Sep 1888 in Germanville, Illinois.8,9,10 She appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Germanville Twp., Livingston Co., Illinois, in the household of her parents, John Glabe and Elizabeth Ruppel.6
     Catherine married Rev. Edmond George Vaubel, son of Adam Vaubel and Mary Ebert, on 16 Dec 1908 in Chatsworth, Illinois.11,12,13
     Her husband's calling as a minister in the Evangelical Association lead to frequent moves for their family.18,19,20,21
     Catherine and Edmond appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Chatsworth, Livingston Co., Illinois, enumerated 23 Apr 1910, reporting they were renting their home, apparently from her mother, who is listed as living in the same building with Catherine's younger siblings. Their daughter Valera was listed as living with them.22
     Edmond was transferred from Chatsworth to the church in Pearl City, nearly 170 miles north and west, in May 1910.23 He was assigned to the church in Malta, about 80 miles east in Apr 1915.24
     His assignment to the church in Grand Prairie, about 50 miles south and east, was announced in Apr 1919. So it is unclear why they are listed in the 1920 census in Bonfield, some 40 miles south, unless there was a last-minute change in his assignment.25 They appeared on the 1920 Federal Census of Bonfield, Kankakee Co., Illinois, enumerated 30 Jan 1920, reporting they rented their home. Their children Valera, Emerson and Paul were listed as living with them.26
     By 1921 he was assigned to Grace Church in Peoria, and they were living at 605 Stanley Ave.27 He was assigned to the church in Downers Grove, about 150 miles north and east, and only about 20 miles from Chicago, in Apr 1923.28
     By 1930 he was assigned to the First Evangelical Church in Ottawa, about half way between Downers Grove and Peoria.29 They appeared on the 1930 Federal Census of Ottawa, LaSalle Co., Illinois, at 1114 Illinois Ave., enumerated 16 Apr 1930, reporting they rented their home. Their children Valera, Emerson and Paul were listed as living with them, although Valera is marked as absent.30
     He apparently was assigned to a church in Fon du Lac Twp., Tazewell Co., near Peoria, by 1935 as they reported in the 1940 census that he had lived there in 1935. But she was reported to had lived elsewhere, though the name of the town and county cannot be deciphered.31 He was assigned to the church in Geneseo in Apr 1937.32
     By 1940 he seems to have been assigned to a church in Peotone, south of Chicago.33 Catherine and Edmond appeared on the 1940 Federal Census of Peotone, Will Co., Illinois, enumerated 13 Apr 1940, reporting that they rented their home, for $25 per month. Their son Paul was listed as living with them. Their two older children, Valera and Emerson, were also listed, but then crossed out, apparently because they had been named by their parents but were not actually living in the household. She was a nurse in the U.S. Navy in San Diego, and he was with his wife of five years and their infant daughter.31
     Catherine died on 25 Jan 1964 in Washington, Illinois, at age 75, at her home.12,14,15 She was buried on 28 Jan 1964 in Glendale Cemetery, Washington, Illinois, next to her husband.16,17
