The deceased was a most estimable young lady widely known and most highly respected throughout this part of the county, with a large circle of connections in Egypt and Davenport. Miss Moore was 25 years of age. She came to this county with her family from Ontario, Canada in 1883, when but a child, and grew up to womanhood on the place the family has constantly occupied since settling in the county. She was a bright young lady, and her amiable disposition endeared her to all of her acquaintances. She was a devout Christian, a loving daughter, a kind and sympathetic friend. Her death is sincerely deplored in the community in which she resided. Circumstances attending the death of Miss Moore were sad and singular. Her illness did not at any time seem serious, and her physician had no apprehensions of the result. Even up to a few hours before death there were no alarming symptoms. However, the young lady must have had a premonition of approaching death, because from the very first she insisted she would not recover. She had no fears of death, and spoke of the end without dread. She burned her letters, arranged her belongings and gave instructions for the distribution of her effects. At times her mind seemed deranged, and she suffered much from insomnia. Thursday night her physician prescribed a narcotic. She fell asleep, or into a stupor, at once, from which she never awoke, passing away quietly shortly after noon Saturday. The funeral took place from the ME Church in this place Monday at 10 o’clock, and the remains were followed to the cemetery by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.

Mr Motycka was a resident of Davenport for about 45 years and was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  Survivors include his wife, Mamie; a son, Ted Braun of Brush Prairie, WA; two daughters, Noreen Brantley of Grand Coulee, WA; and Betty Bisson of Reardan, WA; two sisters, Marlene Yarbrough of Spokane and Juelanne Ferry of Sprague, WA; 15 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.” (scrapbook item: undated) “A graveside memorial service for longtime Davenport resident Albin (Al) Motycka was held Saturday, June 20, with Pastor Phil Falk officiating and Stan Senter providing a beautiful musical tribute. Interment of Al’s ashes into his father’s plot followed at Mountain View Cemetery. The oldest of seven children, Albin Paul Motycka was born Nov 20, 1918, to Albin and Pauline (Hardung) Motycka at the Palace Hotel in Odessa. He entered into eternal peace on June 13, 1998 at St Luke’s Extended Care Center in Spokane.  Albin served in the armed services during WW II in England, France and Belgium, and belonged to the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #7480. He was married to his wife Mamie for 49 ½ years, and they made their home in Davenport where Mamie still resides.  Mr Motycka worked for years as a construction laborer for companies, including Max J Kuney and Lydig, and worked proudly on Grand Coulee Dam with his brother. Mr Motycka loved to tend long-horned cattle with his friend Marvin Hansen and doted on his huge blue cat, Brutus. Although Al and Mamie had none of their own, Al loved children and treated his great nieces and nephews as though they were his grandchildren. Albin was preceded in death by his mother and father, brothers Norris, Joel (Joe) and Irvin (Buster), and his sister, Iona. He is survived by his wife, Mamie, as well as his sisters, Juelanne Ferry and Marlene Yarbrough, both of Spokane, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.” (Davenport Times:  6-25-1998; photo in uniform in obit)
