    An Obituary (Contributed)

    Mrs. Kate Kreft (nee McIntyre) was born in county Sligo, Ireland on March 17, 1862. While she was still a baby her parents emigrated to America, arriving in San Francisco early in 1864. In 1877 Miss McIntyre was married in San Francisco to Paul L. Kreft. Of eight children, the issue of this union, four survive their mother. They are Mrs. Henrietta Burchtorf and Mrs. William Wells of this city, Mrs. James Keane of Portland and Paul L. Kreft of Pendleton.

    Mr & Mrs. Kreft came to Oregon in the year 1879, residing for a short time on a ranch, the property of the McIntyre family. In 1880 they came to The Dalles where Mr. Kreft engaged in business until a serious illness forced him to retire. He lingered on in an invalid condition for over a year, and passed away on July 23, 1900.

    Of Mrs. Kreft's faithfulness and loyalty as a wife and mother; her devotion to Mr. Kreft during his last illness when for many months she never left his bedside; of the energy and industry she displayed in providing and caring for her family, it is needless to write, as all the persons concerned are well acquainted with the facts.

    It is chiefly an account of her indomitable courage, patience and cheerfulness in the face of veritable mountains of sorrows and misfortune that her memory will be cherished by her numerous friends and acquaintances. This is not the place in which to recount the many vicissitudes through which Mrs. Kreft and her family passed. Suffice it to say that seldom does it fall to the lot of one mother or one family to be visited as they were. But, through all, Mrs. Kreft maintained a brave and cheery disposition, with which was combined Christian charity, and a generosity that was almost a fault - every ready to nurse the sick, aid the needy, console the unfortunate.

    Surely, if charity be the greatest virtue, this sweet and noble soul has earned and received the welcome greeting of its maker - "Well done, thou good and faithful servant; enter into the joy of thy Lord."

    Paul Kreft
    After a long and painful illness, Paul Kreft died at 3:30 yesterday afternoon at his home in this city, aged 52 years, 2 months and 3 days.

    Mr. Keft (sic) was born in Danizer, Prussia, May 20, 1848, and came to California when 16 years of age, residing there until 1881, when he came to The Dalles, making this his home until the time of his death. In 1878 he was united in marriage with Kate McIntyre in San Francisco. She and six children, Henriette, Bertha, Charles, Edward, Paul and Nellie, survive him, while two children have preceded him to the grave, one daughter having been killed in a runaway accident here four years ago.

    Mr. Kreft was a painter by trade, and for several years conducted a paint store here. For the past years his health has been failing, and a few months since he went to San Francisco, hoping to gain relief, but his malady was incurable, and since his return home he has patiently awaited his final summons. He was an honored member of Mt. Hood camp, W. O. W., and was universally respected by the entire community.

    During his residence in The Dalles Mr. Kreft held a number of official positions, and on the death of Dr. Rhinehart, who was major, he was selected by the council to serve the unexpired term as chief executive of the city.
