      Family-Placed Obituary

      Juanita Umholtz was born in Frankston, Texas, on February 20, 1925, to Edgar Campbell and Mila Myrtle (Caldwell) Campbell and passed away on July 20, 2004, in Austin, Texas. She grew up helping with the family truck farm and at the family's feed store, post office and cafe in Frankston. Juanita graduated at the age of 16 from Poyner - La Rue high school and move to Tyler to obtain her secretarial degree from business school. In 1943, she married her beloved husband, Charles (Chuck ) Umholtz in Big Springs, Tx, where Chuck was stationed with the Army Air Corps. After WW II, they moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas. They lived in Deep Eddy married student housing while completing their degrees. Juanita received her Bachelor of Science in mathematics and physics in 1949. While Chuck completed his Ph.D., they began their family and enjoyed Austin in the early 1950's. In 1954, they moved to Baytown, Tx, and Juanita stayed home to raise their three daughters. She was a devoted wife and mother who always found ways to show her love and support. Whether it was sewing all her children's clothes, being a Girl Scout Leader or just listening, Juanita found countless ways to give to her family. She was very involved with her extended family as well and did not miss a Caldwell reunion for 25 years. Juanita gave to her community through her work with the United Way, the Opportunity Center, Sterling Public Library, Center for Battered Woman, San Jacinto Hospital volunteer, and sponsoring foreign exchange students through AFS. Juanita also enjoyed activities with her garden club and the Texas Exes. In 1968, Sterling High School needed a teacher for analytical geometry and gave her an emergency teaching certificate. She truly enjoyed teaching and was a volunteer tutor for any student who asked for help in math. Juanita made many friends during the 45 years she lived in Baytown. Her Brownwood coffee club formed during the late fifties and remained close friends even after losing their homes in Hurricane Carla in 1961. Throughout the years they continued to gather for birthday lunches and share family news. After the storm, Juanita and her family moved to Country Club Oaks and felt fortunate to find such wonderful neighbors around her. In later years, she became an elder at First Presbyterian Church of Baytown and treasured her close friendships within the congregation. Juanita was preceded in death by her son, Thomas Charles Umholtz; husband, Dr. Charles Umholtz; sisters, Martha Dickerson and Wanda Nell Childs. She is survived by daughters, Robbie Blaha and husband, Michael of Austin, TX, Rebecca Hewett and husband, Steve of Sandwich, Ma, and Debbie Stark of Austin, Tx; grandchildren: Chelsea and Alex Stark, Isaac Blaha, Katy Hewett; step-grandson, Emil Blaha; sister, Blanche Munson of Waco; brother-in-law, Bob Umholtz of Glendale, Arizona; nieces, Barbara Brown, Susie Leavey; nephews, Cecil Perry, Richard Reynolds, Joe Reynolds. The family wishes to express their deep appreciation for the wonderful care given to their mother by the staff of Westminister Healthcare Center of Austin. A memorial service will be held at on Friday, July 23 at 2:00 p.m. at The First Presbyterian Church, 715 Market St., Baytown, TX, 77521. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that those who wish to honor Juanita may do so with a contribution to The Glaucoma Research Foundation, 490 Post St., Suite 1427, San Francisco, 94102.
