died in his bed Friday morning. As the night was opening into day he gently passed away - possibly died
unconsciously. Mrs. Mary Connors, who kept house for him, looked into his room soon after she arose, as was her
custom, and saw him gently sleeping, apparently. A little later she entered again and found him dead, but still warm.
With his arm across his breast he had quit life without a struggle and without pain. His troubles all were over, his
weary feet at rest, his palsied tongue was silent, his heart would beat no more. The evening before he ate a hearty
supper of oysters and retired in his usual health. He did not know it would be his last sleep. Perhaps he did not care,
for he was old and alone, and longer life was little worthwhile to him. His age was 83 and he was so feeble of mind
and body that he had not been down town for a year. So his death was not a surprise except for its suddenness. But
his last days were comfortable and contented -- he had plenty to keep him while he lived. He was one of the earliest
settlers of this community. He was a typical Irishman, in name, in looks, in habits and although he left his native Isle
more than fifty years ago he retained in large measure the characteristics of his race. Uneducated, he could not read
or write, he yet possessed much of that ready, racy Irish wit that has made the world laugh. It was Mike who, when he
heard a physician explain the balancing power of nature, how if one eye is lost the other becomes stronger, said "I
believe it's so, for l have noticed that when a mon has one short leg, the other leg is generally longer!" Mike was a
great humorist in his odd way and always playing practical jokes on his friends, under the most solemn mien. You
never knew where he'd break out next. He and his wife would often engage in fierce quarrels when you'd think
something dreadful would happen, but it was never serious--it was a part of the conjugal felicity. They enjoyed it. It
was child's play. She died some six or seven years ago. They had no children, but his nephew, John Mahoney, lived
with them and was son and heir to them till he died three years ago. So the old man was all alone until his death
summoned two brothers, Pat from Alexis, Ill., and Dennis from Hartwell, Nebraska--both prosperous farmers. They
arrived today and the funeral is fixed for tomorrow at 10 o'clock at St. Patrick's church and there will be many sighs
of regret at the passing of quaint Mike Mahoney. Pat Mahoney of Alexis, ILL, brought with him his daughter, Mrs.
Bright, and Dennis Mahoney was accompanied by his son.

Angela passed away the day of Margaret's birth...faced with raising eight children under the age of 9, Dominick sent
her to live with Pat & Kate Martin until suitable help could be found to care for her in the family home. When
Margaret was two, Teresa Saner came to live with the Martin family. Margaret returned home and grew under her
care until the age of five. Then her older brothers and sisters were able to help with her care. Margaret attended St.
Patrick Academy in Imogene. After her brothers and sisters married or entered the convent, she lovingly cared for
her father and brother Dominic. Margaret raised chickens and won the Chicken of Tomorrow Contest at the Des
Moines State Fair. She always had a big strawberry patch and enjoyed sharing the abundance of her garden with
family and friends. Family celebrations were not complete without her angel food cakes and cinnamon rolls. In
October of 1979, at the age of 75, she journeyed to the Living History Farms in Des Moines to attend the papal Mass
of Pope John Paul II. Shortly after returning home she caught pneumonia and her health continued to decline. B/SJohn, Dominic, Catherine (Sister Eunan, OP), Mary (Sister Isidore, OP), Martha, Anna, Lucy, and Angela
