KRAMER, Victor Peter
(Age 97)

Passed away Friday, July 27 at his home in Spokane. He was born July 20, 1915, to Peter B and Marie Kramer on the Kramer homestead in Lincoln County. Victor attended the one room country school before attending Odessa and Davenport schools, graduating from Odessa in 1933. He married Agnes Clark in 1939 and farmed until 1980 when they moved to Spokane. He enjoyed visiting with people, playing games and making a joke out of a situation-or telling a joke. For his enjoyment as well as his audience he loved playing his accordion which is a memory none of us will forget. Victor was active in the Odessa Grange, Marcellus Wheat Growers Association, Shriners and the Masonic Lodge, serving as Grand Master in the 50’s. When he moved to Spokane he became involved with the Heritage Congregational Church volunteering for various chores as well as the Paper Packing Group. He also enjoyed attending the Southside Senior Center and participating in pinochle, cribbage games and the Thursday night dances as he was an excellent dancer. He is survived by his four children, Jan Branting, Spokane; Darrel and (Jan) Kramer, Everett; Errol and (Mary) Kramer, Odessa; and Myrna Izidor, Seattle. He is also survived by his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren as well as nephews and nieces. Vic was preceded in death by his parents, his nine siblings, his wife, Agnes, of 63 years; grandson, Asawa Izidor; and son-in-law, Ray Branting.
