Henrietta Clara Kreft1

F, b. 25 May 1883, d. 6 July 1962

    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."
