Jane Elgas Locraft, 69, a resident of the Washington area since 1932 and who was active in school and service organizations, died at Washington Adventist Hospital Saturday following a heart attack.
Mrs. Locraft was born in New York City. She taught school in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., after graduating from Smith College.
She moved to Washington in 1932, when she married Dr. Thomas H. Locraft, former head of Catholic University's school of architecture and a designer of buildings in the Washington area. Dr. Locraft died in 1959.
Mrs. Locraft had lived at the Takoma Towers in Takoma Park, Md., for the past six years and was a member of the resident council here.
She also was a member of the Smith College Alumni Association, the Christ Child Society, the Trinity College Mothers Club and the Ki Wives, an auxiliary of the Kiwanis Club of Washington.
In addition, she had served on the parent and teachers association of St. Gabriel's School, Georgetown Visitation, St. John's High School and Georgetown Preparatory School.
Survivors include three sons, Thomas H. Jr., and Matthew E., both of Rockville, and Gregory W., of Silver Spring; a daughter, Jane Locraft Head, of Potomac, Md., and 16 grandchildren.
The family suggests of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Thomas H. Locraft Architectural Scholarship Fund at Catholic University.
