Mrs. Frank Bred, who had been in poor health for some time, died at her home in this city March 31, 1916, aged 59 years, 7 months and 25 days.

She was a woman of quiet everyday good qualities, a helpful wife, kind and loving mother, and a good neighbor, doing faithfully each day the duties that came to her.

She leaves her husband and three children: Mary E., Margaret and Robert, all residing at home; also one brother, John O’Brien of Levis and one sister, Mrs. M.D. Zwight of Ferndale, Ore.
