Mrs. Wojtek died at 6 a.m. Sept. 28, in Youens Memorial Hospital.
She was a lifelong resident of Oakland. Born January 31, 1894, she was a daughter of Josef Valchar Jr. and T erezie Coufal Valchar. She was married to John Wojtek of Needville on Nov. 22, 1916, and for the first three years they farmed near Oakland. In 1919 they moved into Oakland, where Mr. Wojtek clerked in a store for 10 years. In 1929 they entered into their mercantile business, continuing until Mr. Wojtek’s death in 1953. After that Mrs. Wojtek worked as a clerk for H. B. Mayes for 10 years until ill health forced her to retire.
She continued to live alone another 10 years, until she sold her home and moved in with her brother and sister.
Mrs. Wojtek is survived by three sisters, Mrs. John (Annie) Fojt, Mrs. Frank (Lydia) Roznovak, and Miss Martha Valchar, and one brother, Henry E. Valchar, all of the Weimar area.
