At the time of his death Charles Schreiner held the fol-
lowing positions in addition to his Kerrville enterprises: Pres-
ident of the State Bank of Rocksprings, Vice-President of the
Central Trust Company of San Antonio, Director of the San
Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad Company, Director of the
National Banks of Commerce of San Antonio and of Houston,
President of the Kerrville Water Works Company, and director
in many other enterprises.
Thus, rounding out a long, busy, and well-spent life, the
venerable financier resided in his beautiful home, which still
stands today on the site of his first store, until his death on
February 9, 1927. Although he had partly retired from active
business in 1917, he maintained an interest in his family, dogs,
horses, and the business until the very last.
His faithful housekeeper, Miss Emile Groben, who now re-
sides in San Antonio, Texas, remained with the family for over
twenty-five years before Schreiner's death. During the old
gentleman's last years he was partly incapacitated, and she
took care of his every need. Consequently, in his will he left
her $25,000 as a token of his appreciation. Captain Schreiner
lived for eighty-nine years; his memory and good work will
not be soon forgotten. His influence will long be felt in Texas.
