Claud would not give in, and although the seriousness of his wounds prevented him from enlisting into the U.S. Army during World War II, his strength and determination allowed him to keep his leg and become a master of his trades.

Keith, Virginia Livingston
Virginia Livingston Keith - La Veta Signature - August 8, 1991 - [Editors Note: Virginia Keith, of La Veta and Norman, OK, died suddenly July 30 at her home in La Veta. Following is a feature story about her by her husband Harold Keith.] Virginia Livingston Keith, Norman watercolorist and wife of Harold Keith, former University of Oklahoma sports publicist, was born on Christmas day 1910 at Kanapolis, KS, a small town in the central part of that state. She was the only girl in her family. She had four brothers, Gene, Roy, Rex and Ray. She outlived them all. Her father was Oscar V. Livingston, a land dealer who bought and sold farms, ranches and oil leases all over Kansas. Her mother was Anna Caswell Livingston, a housewife. As a school girl, Virginia became an excellent automobile driver. Her father taught her to drive at age 12. She drove him all about the dirt roads of the state as he consummated his various land deals. Whenever he grew sleepy, he would put her at the wheel while he napped. There was no Kansas law then regulating the age of auto drivers. Virginia attended high school at Hutchinson KS, where she graduated in 1929. As a high school girl, she worked after school each day and on Saturdays as a sales clerk in a large department store, becoming not only a skillful sales person but also a subtle judge of color and style. She also completed a secretarial course. "She had lots of charm and lots of class," Harold Keith later described his wife, "Finding her was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me." My dad really found her first. He hired her as a secretary in his grain office. He was a grain buyer for the Red Star Milling Company on the Hutchinson Board of Trade. I was working for him then, too. I remember when Cow Creek overflowed, flooding Hutchinson and filling all the basements in town. Most of the other secretaries stayed home. But this girl pulled off her shoes and stockings and carrying them, waded barefooted ten blocks through a foot of muddy water so that she could report to work on time." That impressed the dickens out of me. I don't recall that I even come to work at all during that same period, but she did." "She's been my wife, my partner, and my girl ever since. That means that she has prepared nearly 50,000 meals for our family and after all that culinary experience, she cooks better today than ever." She manages most of our financial affairs and does it well. She's a careful shopper. She raised the kids. Anybody who has trained children knows what the job entails." The Keith's have two children. John is today Public Information Officer of the City of Las Cruces, NM. Kitty is a grade school teacher at Pearland, TX. "Virginia has typed several of my manuscripts, a species of punishment she surely didn't deserve," Harold Keith resumes, "She's a good athlete and when we hit the roads together, she walks almost as fast as I can run. She keeps me humble although I know that living with me is no day on the beach." When the Keith children grew older, Virginia decided that she wanted to be a painter. At the University of Oklahoma she enrolled in courses in life drawing, perspective and sketching. She studied painting under Leonard Good and sculpture under Joe Taylor. She went to Oklahoma City and took John Metcalf's basic course. She enrolled in portrait painting under Beth McAninch. Then she began traveling about the nation in the summer taking instruction under several teacher-painters. She studied seven weeks under Elliot O'Hara at Flat Rock, NC and two weeks under John Pike at Cloudcroft, NM. She studied oil portrait painting under Jerry Farnsworth at Sarasota FL then repeated the course a year later there. She worked in oil under Mary Lee Garrot at Taos, NM. She later returned to Taos for watercolor instruction under Gene Dougherty. John Pellow was her next instructor. He taught a traveling workshop that toured Colorado. She was one of his pupils. In 1972, she had four weeks at Sergei Bongart's school at Rexburg, ID. Meanwhile, she was painting and selling steadily, much of it at the Norman Art League's annual shows. Dr. George Sutton, the nationally-famous ornithologist and bird painter, bought one of her Oklahoma landscapes and esteemed it highly. In December 1978, Doctor Sutton stopped me in front of the University Press. "Harry Hoy of OU's geography faculty, came by my office today and saw the painting I bought from Virginia," he said, "He admired it and wanted to know all about it. I told him that Virginia had painted it and that I had hung it in my office over my desk. I look at it every day. Honestly, it inspires me." Her colors are so pure. Blues, greens, etc., instead of cluttering it up with grays and browns. Reminds me of Monet, Seurat and Sidner. Nothing in that painting is dull," he said. The picture, an oil landscape that Virginia had done on my grandfather Jim Kee's old school farm near Quinlan in Woodward County was mostly northwestern Oklahoma scenery - red hills with white gypsum outcroppings that blended prettily with the cedars and the green landscape. It was the only painting Doctor Sutton would tolerate in his office. In 1975, the Keiths bought a summer home, a small four-room 1904 vintage stone house in La Veta, CO, close to the San Isabel National Forest, and Virginia began showing and selling at the Cuchara, CO Art Show what she had sketched and painted in the mountains. "Her best work of all, I think," Harold says, "was the watercolor portraits she did of our four grandchildren, Duke and Casey Keith, and Jeff and Cindy Hollinger. Each of these won a special ribbon of merit at the Norman Art League's fall show. The portrait of Casey, the youngest, was judged best of the 1975 show." One afternoon in Colorado, Harold drove Virginia to her first public auction, a sale of the personal property of John Goemmer, a Colorado rancher who lived in the mountains five miles north of La Veta. They opened the bidding on a triple-shelved rolling tray she needed to stack her painting utensils on," Harold remembers. "The action started at one dollar and advanced steadily. The bidders set a fast pace, speedily jacking up the price. A cigarette in one hand and a black pant leg stuffed in one boot, the big auctioneer was warbling as smoothly as Johnny Cash. "Got two dollars, who'll give three?" he twanged. "Three!" somebody shouted. "Got three, who'll give four?" "Four!" "Got four, who'll give five?" "Four and a quarter," Virginia called out timidly, making her debut in the public auction world. The auctioneer stopped dead still. His continuity was shattered. Everything grew quiet. Only sound that could be heard was the bubbling of the little mountain stream that pulsed musically behind the white stucco ranch house. He swept off his big cowboy hat and bowed to Vi. "Aw, mam," he protested, "You ruined my rhythm. Now I've got to start all over." Unabashed, Virginia just smiled back coolly. Her bid stayed at four and a quarter. Bluffing out the even money clique, she bought the piece for $6.75. "I should talk. I purchased a big red yard bench that day for three dollars that wouldn't fit into the trunk of our car." "In 1974, we loaded her painting gear into her Toyota station wagon and she drove 1,400 miles to Rexburg, ID to study color and values under Don Ricks, a Mormon painter. She studied and painted under him three weeks. He later wrote to her, 'It sure was a pleasure to work with you this summer. I have always enjoyed your wonderful lady-like qualities. I was very happy with the progress you made in your painting. I'm impressed with your great desire. Thanks for being so pleasant. Don Ricks." That says it for me too. He's right about all those traits. And she has many, many more." The Daily Oklahoman - August 01, 1991 - Virginia Livingston Keith, 80, Norman, died Tuesday, July 30 at Walsenburg, Colorado. Services will be at 2:00 p.m. Friday, August 2, at St. John's Episcopal Church with the Rev. Donald P. Owens, Jr., PhD, officiating.

Kekeisen, Robert Edward
Rev. Robert Edward Kekeisen - Pueblo Chieftain - July 31, 1998 - Rev. Robert Edward Kekeisen, affectionately known as Father K, died July 29, 1998, at the Pikes Peak Hospice Residence at St. Francis Health Center in Colorado Springs. Father Kekeisen was born Jan. 9, 1920, to Frank and Ida (Nalefski) Kekeisen in Decatur, Ill. His family moved to Colorado Springs when he was quite young. He attended St. Mary's Grade School and High School in Colorado Springs, and it was here in the choir and school operettas, under the direction of Msgr. William Kelly, that Father K's love of music was nurtured. In September 1937, he entered St. Thomas Seminary in Denver to study for the priesthood. Each summer, in order to finance his studies, he drove a tour car on the Pikes Peak Highway. While attending the seminary, he studied Latin and Greek, was a member of the Falso Bardone Choir and Gregorian Chant group, took part in dramatics and sports, was a feature writer for the seminary magazine and was co-editor of the student newspaper. Father Kekeisen was ordained a Catholic priest on June 3, 1944, by Archbishop Urban Vehr, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Denver. He was assigned to St. Catherine's parish in Denver on June 28, 1944, while also serving as editor of the Denver Catholic Register. He authored a column entitled, Ask and Learn," which responded to readers' questions relating to Catholic theology and doctrine. These columns were published in Catholic newspapers nationwide and generated a book of the same title in 1956. He also served at St. Leo's and then as pastor at St. Anthony of Padua and Our Lady of Lourdes parishes in Denver. In 1972 he was appointed pastor of Corpus Christi parish in Colorado Springs until his retirement in 1985. Although retired from his full-time assignments, Father Kekeisen continued to serve the people of the Diocese of Colorado Springs, the Archdiocese of Denver, and the Dioceses of Pueblo and Cheyenne, Wyo., with his assistance as a substitute priest in parishes, visiting the sick and bereaved, praying with families and encouraging all to grow in faith. Father Kekeisen once remarked that, the church needs retired priests, and really, a priest is never retired. There are always people who need us." During his busy retirement, Father Kekeisen enjoyed his health club, swimming, playing golf and visiting good friends. His love of fine music and song enhanced each sermon and he became fondly known as the singing priest." The Gospel lessons were taught in a way that made them not only spiritual but life lessons because they came from the heart and were accented by a good story or joke. His love of life and God, and special devotion to the Blessed Mother, were reflected in his relationships with everyone he met. Each person was special to him. Father Kekeisen is survived by his sister, Dr. Loretta Seleski of St. Louis, Mo. - nephews, Rev. William Kekeisen, Frank Kekeisen and Robert Kekeisen- and nieces, Betty Kircher, Mary Lou James, Janet Beasley, Louise Miller, Patricia Gage, Gennie Lou Tinker, Barbara James and Judith Novak- nephew, Robert Cass. He was preceded in death by his parents- his brothers, Carl, Frank, Joseph and James- and his sisters, Clara, Mary and Louise. Father Kekeisen will be greatly missed by his brother priests, and his countless friends, parishioners, and all those who have enjoyed his gregarious and loving personality. With a song in his heart he made God's love real to each of us. Visitation will be held from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, at Swan-Law Funeral Directors, 501 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs. A vigil and rosary service will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 2318 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs. The Mass of the Resurrection with Father William Kekeisen presiding, and concelebrated by Bishop Richard Hanifen and Father K's surviving seminary classmates and brother priests, will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, at Corpus Christi. Burial will be at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs, followed by a luncheon at Corpus Christi School in accordance with Father's wish that he be remembered as a person saying farewell to my friends and loved ones in a happy and jovial atmosphere." Father stated that his greatest blessing in life was the sublime gift of the priesthood and that the magnificent happiness that comes from caring solicitously for God's family, by offering His Son in the Mass to God and then, by way of nourishment to men, cannot be described except in the language of the angels." MDBO "Well done now my good and faithful servant." MAY HE REST IN THE ETERNAL LIGHT, LOVE AND PEACE OF GOD! MDNM The family encourages memorial contributions to be made to Pikes Peak Hospice Inc., 3630 Sinton Road, Colorado Springs, Colo., 80907, designated for the Support Center, in appreciation for the dignified and loving care given to Father K.

Kelcher, Pat
Pat Kelcher - Boulder County Courier - November 1, 1878 - Two railroad laborers named Pat Kelcher and James Farrel, who had got into a drunken row at Pueblo, cutting and beating each other badly, were arrested and put into a cell together. During the night flames were seen bursting from the roof of the jail, but before they could be subdued both prisoners were burned to a crisp. The fire is attributed to a lighted candle that was left in the cell at the request of the prisoners. Boulder County News - November 1, 1878 - Burned To Death in the Pueblo Jail - Pueblo, October 20. Two railroad laborers named Pat Kelcher and James Farrel, who had been spreeing for several days, got into a row in South Pueblo last night, when Farrel cut an ugly gash in the throat of Kelcher. The latter then beat up Farrel badly, when both were arrested by Officer Drummond and confined in the calaboose. Dr. Shelburn was called in and dressed their wounds, and at their own request a bucket of water and a lighted candle were left in the calaboose. This was between 12 and 1 o'clock Monday night, and about 3 o'clock in the morning the watchman at the railroad depot discovered flames breaking through the roof of the building. He, with another man, rushed to the place and broke down the door, but the inmates were already dead and were burned to a crisp before the fire could be put out. Farrel was from St. Louis and Kelcher from Boston, where, it is believed, he has a family. He claimed to have a brother somewhere in Colorado.

Keleher, Patrick
Patrick Keleher – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 31, 1878 – Horrible Holocaust – Two Men Burned to Death in the South Pueblo Calaboose.  The most horrible accident that has ever occurred in this vicinity happened on Monday night.  Pat Keleher and James Farrel, two drunken men, became involved in a fight at the Colorado House, in which the one – Pat Keleher, had a gash cut in his throat, and the other, James Farrell, had his face badly bruised.  They were confined in the town calaboose by Officer Desmond, and their wounds dressed by Dr. Shelburne.  The two men were reasonably sober when left by the doctor, and Keleher asked for a light to bathe his wounds by.  A candle and bucket of water were left him and the two men had become reconciled and agreed to have no further trouble.  About three o'clock in the morning of the 29th the Calaboose was found to be on fire, and when broke open the bodies of the two men were almost entirely consumed.  The coroner Dr. Thombs was notified and summoned a jury, consisting of John Hamilton, H. C. Banks, W. W. Strait, G. D. Root, Fred Dickson and Jonathan Going.  The first witness sworn was P. J. Desmond, who stated that one of the parties burned was Patrick Keleher, who claimed to be from Boston and who claimed to have a brother, who was a carpenter, working somewhere in Colorado.  Upon the 28th Keleher was arrested under a warrant issued by Esquire Wilson, upon a charge of assault with intent to kill on complaint of L. Lehman.  It being too late for a trial the deputy sheriff Desmond took the man, who seemed verging on delirium tremens, to the Colorado House for the night.  About ten o'clock however, the man Keleher had a difficulty with James Farrell, in which he received an ugly gash in the neck, and he in turn beat Farrell in the face and head.  Desmond then with assistance took the two men to the calaboose, and summoned Dr. Shelburne.  In order to allow Keleher to bathe his neck he left a piece of candle in the cell.  The bedding being insufficient for two cells the two men were put together.  Desmond further stated that he was up at the Grand Central until one o'clock, when he went to bed, and in about an hour and a half heard an alarm of fire and when he reached the calaboose it was burned down and the two men dead inside.  Henry Kammerer sworn: - Stated that on the night of the 28th Desmond came and asked him to go for Dr. Shelburne.  Went to calaboose.  Saw the two men.  Didn't know either one of them.  The man whose neck was cut was not very much under the influence of liquor, but seemed somewhat strange as if crazy from previous drinking.  The two men seemed entirely reconciled.  Didn't seem angry with each other.  The older man said he was from St. Louis.  Didn't know his name, but could find out.  (Found afterwards to be James Farrell.)  Christopher Wilson examined under oath: - Stated that upon complaint of Louis Lehman, on the 29th, he issued a warrant for the arrest of Patrick Keleher upon a charge of assault with a pistol with intent to kill.  Keleher could give no bail and was turned over to constable Desmond.  Keleher seemed somewhat crazed and drunk.  Mr. Jonathan Going, juryman, stated that he thought the man Keleher was crazy from previous drinking and that he claimed to be from Boston.  Dr. E. Shelburne was then sworn and stated that upon the night of the 28th, about twelve o'clock, he was summoned to the calaboose to attend two wounded men.  Found one with a gash in his neck which was not serious, and the other badly beaten but not seriously hurt.  The one with the neck cut was standing up smoking a pipe, the other lying in bed.  Sewed up the wound in the neck of the larger man.  The other man remarked to the larger one "you used your boots on me d----d rough."  Both men talked sensibly enough, but smelled whiskey on the larger man.  The candle had no stick but was held in the hand.  Both men seemed a little afraid of further trouble.  The bodies when found did not occupy the same relative position as when he left the calaboose.  Keleher looked nervous and excited.  E. Herbert, proprietor of the Colorado House, sworn and examined.  Stated that Keleher was at his house on the 27th and was extremely quarrelsome and disagreeable, fussing with nearly everybody he came in contact with.  During the day of the 28th he took a little girl from the house up town, and made her very drunk.  When about to close up, the other man (Farrel) came in and had two glasses of beer.  He threw beer into Kelly's (not Keleher's) face.  He was then put out of the house, and Keleher went out after him.  In a few moments Keleher called for a light, and stated that he was cut.  The light was brought when Keleher was found to have Farrel down on the sidewalk or porch, beating and kicking him.  Farrel said Keleher was trying to rob him, and Keleher didn't seem to be crazed from drinking.  Farrel was a man of about thirty-seven or forty.  Fred Mysing sworn.  His testimony was the same as that of Desmond and Kammerer, except that he stated that upon the way to the calaboose the old man (Farrel) exclaimed repeatedly, "Oh God, oh God, I wish I was dead!  Oh God, let me die!"  Went to the calaboose with Desmond.  Heard Keleher say that he had acted wrong, and would stay quietly in the cell.  John Maher, examined under oath, stated that about three o'clock of the morning of the 29th, he found the calaboose on fire, and with the assistance of Jos. Coffman, broke open the door, but found the walls all burned.  Was watchman for the Denver & Rio Grande railroad.  Upon conclusion of the testimony the jury returned a verdict of death from a fire ignited through the negligence of the deceased.  The jury further condemned in strong terms the character of the building which was built for the confinement of drunken men principally, and was of the most dangerous material possible, as being lined with highly inflammable wood, and even the strictest search of the officer might leave a match undiscovered.  Once before, three men came near meeting with a similar fate, and but for the timely assistance of a passer death would certainly have followed.  The calaboose was so far from the inhabited part of the town that no alarm could be heard.  We feel satisfied that the new town board will build such a building as the necessities of the town demand, and that they will do it at once.  It may be as well for the Denver and St. Louis papers to notice the death of these unfortunate men, as their friends may be informed.  A Chieftain reporter visited the scene of the awful tragedy yesterday afternoon, and the bodies were still smouldering.  Farrel's head, and the legs and arms of both were entirely burned up, nothing but the shapeless trunks remaining.  The head of Keleher was burned to charcoal, but still retained its shape.  It was one of the most horrible and sickening sights he ever beheld.  They were both placed in one coffin and buried by order of Dr. P. R. Thombs last evening, at the county's expense.  It is another fearful warning to those who drink to excess, but, of course, will soon be forgotten.  Somebody is responsible for the death of these men, and it should be regarded as a crime to construct a prison of combustible material.  Men not necessarily vicious or bad frequently become intoxicated and have to put in the lock up, and every precaution should be taken to protect life.  But we presume men and corporations will keep on constructing prisons in the cheapest manner possible till some one who has influential friends gets burned alive, when some corporation may find itself with a heavy bill of damages to pay.

Kerr, George E.
George E. Kerr - Golden Colorado Transcript - February 1, 1899 – An Instance of the Gross Mismanagement of That Institution. The recent investigation of the administration of Dr. P. R. Thombs, superintendent of the insane asylum at Pueblo, brought out the fact that Geo. E. Kerr, formerly a well known and respected resident of this county, had died there, although his relatives here had received no information on the subject. Alex. Kerr, a brother of the deceased, wrote a letter of inquiry to the superintendent, enclosing a clipping from one of the Denver papers. The doctor replied that George E. Kerr had died there on December 20, 1898, and had been "well buried" at Mountain View cemetery. He vouchsafed no excuse for neglecting to notify the relatives or authorities here, and referring to the newspaper clipping pronounced it "unfair, and calculated to cause anxiety to those having friends here." This is but one of many similar cases, all tending to prove Thombs' palpable neglect and mismanagement, yet the investigating committee accomplished little or nothing calculated to partially remove this stigma from the fair name of our state.

Joel J. Ketner - Walsenburg World – September 3, 1908 - A sad accident occurred Monday afternoon near Strong, Colo., when Joel J. Ketner, engineer, was killed by the overturning of an engine on the Pictou branch of the D.&R.G. Mr. Ketner and wife had just returned from a camping outing with their uncle and aunt and as soon as he reached home went out on this run as a substitute for the regular engineer. Through softened tracks the engine left the rails near Strong and turned turtle, catching Mr. Ketner under its weight, crushing his bones and the escaping steam from the engine scalding his flesh. Dr. Lester was called out as soon as possible, but there was nothing to do but take care of the remains. Mr. Ketner was about 41 years of age and had been a resident of Walsenburg for about six years, where he had accumulated a nice little residence property, the result of his thrift and saving. Mr. Ketner's father and mother, John D. Ketner and wife, came from Pueblo Tuesday, and together with the Walsenburg relatives, accompanied the body to Pueblo for burial. Mr. Ketner was a member of the Order of Eagles, pall bearers from which lodge accompanied the body as far as Cucharas. Mr. Ketner also belonged to the Order of Locomotive Engineers.

King, Henry
Henry King - Canon City Record - September 4, 1919 - A Soldier Boy Loses His Life by Lightning Near Hillside - Henry King was cutting oats at 6 o'clock Saturday evening when struck. Henry Bascom King of Hillside was killed by lightning during a thunder storm last Saturday evening about 6 o'clock. He was employed at the time of the accident on the ranch of District Attorney T. Lee Witcher of this city which is located west of the village of Hillside. He was in the harvest field cutting oats, driving three horses to a binder, when the messenger of death came to him. A little thunderstorm developed in the mountains nearby, and a bolt of lightning seemingly from an almost cloudless sky, struck the young man just back of the left temple, making its way through his body, emerging near the right hip. So intense was the heat from the thunderbolt that it melted a portion of the steel seat of the binder on which he sat at the time. His brother, Canie King was at work about 100 yards away, and he noticed that the horses had stopped and that the driver had fallen from the machine. He ran over to see what had happened. He found his brother lying on the ground in a lifeless condition. Assistance was summoned and the young man was carried to his home where the remains were subsequently prepared for burial. The deceased was one of three brothers at home, none of whom are married. The survivors, Canie and Waldo King. Bascom was a faithful and dutiful son of a widowed mother who regarded him with love and affection. Rev. Sperry was his pastor during his seven years ministry on the Hillside circuit, and the deceased, like his brothers was a dependable man in supporting the hall work where religious services were held. While Bascom King never made a definite profession of religion, he lived a good clean, moral life and gave expression to what he believed in the wholesome life he lived. He was the pride of a good mother.

Kintzi, Olga
Olga Kintzi – Hugo Range Ledger – April 19, 1919 – Tragic Death of Miss Olga Kintzi – In a fit of despondency as a result of her mental condition brought about by a nervous breakdown, Miss Olga Kintzi, beloved and respected by all who knew her, ended her young life at Center, Colorado, last Monday afternoon, April 14, at the home of her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. John Brubacher, where she had been taken by her widowed mother, Mrs. Amelia Kintzi, in the hope that the change would prove beneficial and restore her to normal health. Taunted by a fear at all times that she might become hopelessly insane and a helpless charge on her relatives and friends, she chose to end it all, and in a tragic manner strangled herself in a washhouse by using a small rope. She had been absent from her mother and aunt but a few moments who had been carefully watching her, and her almost lifeless body was discovered by her aunt, Mrs. Brubacher, who had gone in search of her. Miss Kintzi was popular with all who had business at the county court house, and for no less than ten years she had been a most efficient clerk there, first as deputy clerk in the office of County Clerk Alex. S. Johnson; then deputy treasurer for former treasurer, H. C. White, and continuing as deputy for four years for Wm. M. Jones, the present treasurer. For the last three years, she had also acted as deputy clerk of the district court. She had many supporters for the nomination last summer for county treasurer on the Republican ticket, but this offer she declined. The news of her sudden death came as a great shock to her many friends in Hugo, and the sad news was almost unbelievable. Of a timid disposition, she was always kindly and courteous to the many patrols of the treasurer's office, a hard and conscientious worker, none too strong physically, her health became broken, and she was urged to take a long rest from her official duties, but seemingly too late, for while her condition improved somewhat by a sojourn at Excelsior Springs, Mo., and later at a sanitarium at Pueblo, Colorado, the afflicted mind and body was slow in healing. The remains were brought to Hugo by her heart-broken mother, and her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. John Brubacher, arriving here Thursday afternoon. The funeral was held at the Methodist Church yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and Rev. J. Carroll Phillips officiated, he delivered an impressive sermon. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful, and the attendance was large. Five of her cousins, Messrs. Emil, Oscar, Waldo and Otto Ewy, and Arnold Brubacher, and Mr. H. G. Gaywood, were the pall bearers, and she was tenderly laid to rest in Hugo cemetery. Miss Olga Kintzi was born at Bingham Lake, Minnesota, Dec. 20, 1889 and was an only child. There she spent her childhood days and was graduated from the high school at that place. Shortly after her graduation, she came with her mother to Hugo, and taught school here for a year or so. Later she became a deputy in the county clerk's office, growing to full womanhood as a most trustworthy and capable official. At the time of her death, she was 29 years, 3 months and 24 days of age. She leaves a widowed mother; a number of relatives in Hugo, Limon and Center, Colorado, besides a host of sorrowing friends to mourn the loss of an affectionate daughter; and a lovable Christian woman, firm in her womanly belief. Long will she be remembered for her many kindly ways and her studious attention to duty. To her lonely mother and sorrowing relatives, we extend heartfelt sympathy.

Knous, Robert Lee
Robert Lee Knous - Denver Rocky Mountain News - May 17, 2000 - Former Lt. Gov. Robert Lee Knous died Monday at his home after a lengthy illness. He was 82. Mr. Knous served as lieutenant governor from 1959 until 1967 and in the Colorado Senate from 1953 until 1957. A Democrat, he ran for office at a time when lieutenant governors and governors were elected on separate tickets. "He served the first four years under Gov. Steve McNichols, then in 1962 he was elected lieutenant governor when John Love won the governor's race," said Bob Knous Jr., his son. "My dad was the only Democrat to win a statewide race in 1962. There were 18 statewide races, including the Supreme Court. Seventeen Republicans and my father won that year. "Then he ran against John Love (for governor) in 1966. That was the year - unfortunately - that every Democrat lost." Politics was an early way of life for Mr. Knous, who was the son of former Colorado governor and Supreme Court Justice William Lee Knous. While lieutenant governor, Mr. Knous made an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 1960, losing to Gordon Allott. He was asked during his career why he was so interested in politics. "A man only lives once," Mr. Knous said. "I think he ought to be a part of life - actively, not as a bystander." His son said he recalled that quote today to his daughter when they were discussing his father's career in politics and law. Mr. Knous was born Nov. 1, 1917, in Ouray. He attended Montrose public schools and graduated from the University of Colorado. After World War II, he received a law degree from the University of Denver. During World War II, he served as a Navy pilot and a fighter instructor, logging more than 3,500 flight hours. While serving in the legislature, he wrote Colorado's Old Age Pension Act after then-Gov. Ed C. Johnson named him chairman of a special Commission on the Aged. He was a past member of the Colorado and Denver Bar Associations and a member of many civic and community organizations. Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Elizabeth; children Kathleen Jackson of La Veta, Kristine Barbour of Trinidad, Bob Jr. and William, both of Denver, and Jack of Elbert; brother Merle of Creede; 11 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

Kuhlmeyer, Ethel
Ethel Gossert Kuhlmeyer – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – February 17, 1919 – Mrs. Myron R. Kuhlmeyer – With mingled sympathy and sorrow a number of old friends attended with relatives the funeral services held at 1:30 yesterday afternoon for the late Mrs. Ethel Gossert Kuhlmeyer, who died last Monday after a sickness of ten days. The services were private in nature as required by the board of health rulings, and on that account only a few of the family's many friends could attend. Flowers told of the sentiments of those not present, however, as well as those who were there. The services were held at the chapel of the Moynahan and O'Malia's Undertaking company, where the Rev. Leroy W. Ellis of the Baptist church officiated and gave a consoling and eulogistic address. Burial was in Evergreen cemetery. The pall bearers, who represented members of the Knights and Ladies of Security as well as the friends generally were John Crowell, Arthur Dalrymple, Dr. F. J. Verzani, George Fitzsimmons, W. C. Lewis and Harry Gilmore. Having lived virtually all of her life in Leadville and being identified with the activities of the Knights and Ladies of Security of which she was vice president, Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was widely known in Lake county, and her death was a deep shock to her many acquaintances, as well as to her immediate family and friends. She was born in Pueblo on December 23, 1889, and came to Leadville with her mother, Mrs. Mary Gossert, when she was 2 years old, her father having died before her birth. She and Mr. Kuhlmeyer, a son of a well known pioneer family, were married here on October 16, 1907, their marriage ceremony being performed by the Rev. Richardson of the Baptist church, pastor here at that time. Their married life together had been remarkably happy. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was devoted to her home and family and made their comfort the sole aim of her existence. Her husband and three children are heartbroken by her lamentable death. After their marriage they made their home at the dwelling at Brooklyn Heights where they have resided continuously since. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was a devout member of the Baptist church. In lodge affairs she was highly popular among her associates in the Knights and Ladies of Security, who showed their general esteem for her some months ago by electing her vice president. One of the beautiful floral tokens on her bier yesterday was a large emblem from this lodge. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer's last sickness lasted only ten days. Pneumonia developed at the first of the sickness. Thursday she was taken to the city's emergency hospital to provide constant care for her. She passed away there Monday last with the baby born that morning. The baby was buried in her arms yesterday. During her sickness she faced each day courageously and did not give up her confidence of recovering until a short time before her death, when she resigned herself to the end. Her husband, three children, mother and one sister, Mrs. J. W. Doyle, of this city, survive Mrs. Kuhlmeyer. The children are Myron Jr., aged 10; Marie, aged 8; and Ethel, aged 6. Marie and Ethel were born on the same date of January, January 4, two years apart, and their celebration of their birthdays last month was a happy event in the household. The following verses were written on Mrs. Kuhlmeyer's untimely death by Mrs. Joseph Kuhlmeyer and express what a host of friends feel: "Ethel has gone, and left us, to her home above, Where there is no pain and suffering and all is love. For how we'll miss her no word can tell, With heavy hearts we bade her a long farewell. In her casket she is sleeping; her form is white as snow, And in her arms, gently clinging, the little bud that ceased to grow. Husband, mother, sister, children, you are apparently alone, But God has promised sometime, you will follow to the great Unknown. Over the hill they brot her, to the evergreen below, Where they left her sleeping in her bed beneath the snow. Oh, how hard to return without her, our own one! But God's word was spoken and God's will be done."
