Word was received in Waukon last Thursday of the death of David Deeny, who with his wife had been visiting a few weeks at the home of their son Joe in Minneapolis. Mr. Deeny had been in failing health for some time.
The funeral was held Monday at 9:30 at St. Patrick's Church, Waukon. A requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. J.C. Stuart. Burial was made in Mt. Olivet cemetery.
Deceased was born December 8, 1859 in Allamakee county and spent his entire life here. On February 21, 1887 he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Harkins of Lycurgus.
Besides his wife he leaves to mourn three sons and six daughters, namely: Sister Mary Mercedes of Danbury, Ia.; Mrs. Wm. O'Neill and Mrs. Frank Crippes of Dubuque; Miss Esther Deeny of Rock Island, Ill.; Bernard Deeny, an instructor in De Paul University in Chicago; David, Jr., and Joseph of Minneapolis; Mrs. Lawrence Pitz and Miss Mayme Denny [sic] at home. He also is survived by two sisters, Mrs. William Shortt of Lycurgus, and Mrs. Thomas A'hearn of Hanover township and a brother, John Deeny of Cincinnati, Ohio.
In the death of Mr. Deeny the family loses a devoted husband and father, and the community a good citizen friend and neighbor. He was an industrious farmer and was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
The casket bearers were Hugh J. Deeny, Hugh H. Deeny, Chas. Deeny, Robert and Mike Connor and Mike Dougherty.
