Obituary

Ethnicity & Lineage

Angeline was primarily of French descent - a descendant of one of the "Daughters of the King" and a French soldier homesteading in Canada - and was born in Canada. Her family had been in Canada since the 1640s and she moved with her (of German descent) husband to the U.S. (Kansas) after she was married.

Nationality & Locations Lived

Unknown

Religion

Catholic

Education

Did Angeline finish grade school, get a GED, go to high school, get a college degree or masters? What schools or universities did Angeline attend?

Professions

Until her husband J.J. died in his early 40s, Angeline was a mother and wife. (He died on a return trip home - he stopped to help a friend who was shocking wheat and he died of sunstroke. His grave is at home in Plainville, KS)

Somewhat unusual for the time, JJ left a fairly large insurance policy. Angeline remained in Kansas for quite some time (my grandfather, Hollis, lived with her when he was young) but she staked some of her sons in a logging operation in Idaho, which I believe is still in the hands of some of the family.

A devout Catholic, Angeline moved to Spokane Washington in her later years and was the housekeeper for the priests of Gonzaga University in Spokane. When she died, she left the balance of her estate to the University. I believe she is buried on the grounds of Gonzaga.

She must have been a strong woman - after her husband died, she raised her children, set them up in business, and in her later years became a housekeeper for the Jesuits - she was of strong belief. She also raised a grandson (my grandfather) after his parents divorced.

Do you recall where she was a housekeeper for the Jesuits? Or the name of the place? I assume it was in Canada or Washington State?

In 1853, in the year that Angeline (Chartrand) Kroetsch was born, on March 4th, Franklin Pierce became the 14th President of the United States. His son had been killed in a train accident that also involved Pierce and his wife on January 6 - the only of 3 sons to survive until then. Due to the resultant depression and his unpopular policies, he was not re-nominated for President and served only one term.

In 1864, on October 5th, a cyclone killed 70,000 people in Calcutta, India. Calcutta is in a "very high damage risk" cyclone zone, although this was an especially powerful one.

In 1892, on January 1st, Ellis Island opened to process immigrants. 700 passed through on the first day - in the first year, 450,000 were processed. The processing center was originally a 3 story wooden building - with outbuildings - that burned down a few years later.

In 1909, the New York Times published the first movie review. It was a report on D.W. Griffith's movie "Pippa Passes" also called "The Song of Conscience", a silent film. The review said that this work was moving away from "lurid material that attracted the wrath of censors and concerned citizens and toward more respectable ends. The movie was the story of a young female factory worker, on her day off, wandering and singing - thus changing the hearts of those around her towards good.

In 1978, on July 25th, Louise Brown, the first "test-tube baby", was born at Oldham Hospital in London. Louise was conceived through IVF (in vitro fertilization), a controversial and experimental procedure at the time.
