evening, August 18th , that Olga Keyes was dead. she was operated
on in St. Vincent's Hospital, Portland, the previous ..... was little
hope of her recovery from the start, and she gradually sank until the end

She was a beautiful young lady, and a capable house worker, with a very large number of friends -- in fact, all who knew her esteemed and loved her for her sunny disposition and many graces of character. For the six weeks prior to her illness she was assisting Cora B. Morgan with the management of the Fossil Hotel, and the bond of friendship between the two was very strong, they being really more like sisters than mere friends. With the guests, she was a universal favorite, and all of them feel that they have lost a good and true friend by her passing away. The remains were brought to Fossil last Saturday night by the sorrowing mother, who had accompanied her daughter from here to the hospital on the Tuesday before, and early Sunday morning the funeral cortege started to Mitchell, which was reached late last night. On Monday she was laid to rest beside her father in the old cemetery of Mitchell, in presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends. Prior to the interment an affecting funeral sermon was preached in the town church by Rev. James Mansfield, and the services at the grave were conducted by the order of the Rebekahs, of which Order the deceased was an honored member.

Seldom have any in need of sympathy and the most devoted friendship received so full a measure of the best fruits of the human heart. From first to last it was one unceasing routine of kindness and attention, and the gloom of death was softened by the warm radiance of the love bestowed upon our dear one, who has gone before. All that human power could do to alleviate her suffering and ......
