Mrs. Vinnia May Padgett, 79, a native of Klamath County and the daughter of a pioneer family died at noon yesterday at Hillside Hospital after an illness of a few hours. Her family was identified for more than 80 years with various Klamath County businesses. She was born in 1870 near the site of a sawmill operation near Keno owned by her father, Newton Pratt. Her mother, Rebecca Jane (Gordon) Pratt came to Oregon with an emigrant train. The couple operated the Keno Hotel and later the Miller ranch near Worden. Mrs. Padgett received her schooling in Klamath Falls, where she lived with her grandparents at a home located on the site of the Esquire Theater (Now Ross Ragland theater). She was a charter member of the First Presbyterian Church. In 1896 she married Samuel Padgett who died in 1949. Mrs. and Mrs. Padgett operated the post office and store in Keno for many years. With the exception of one year in the Rogue River Valley, Mrs. Padgett spent her entire life in the county.
