Thomas P. Dailey of Lawler Succumbs at the Hospital
Passed Away Friday, April 14th. Body was Taken to Grand Forks, North Dakota for Burial
Thomas P. Dailey, of Lawler, Iowa, passes away at the St. Joseph’s hospital in New Hampton, Good Friday, April 14, 1933. He had reached the age of seventy-three years and one month. Death followed a two weeks illness during which time he was confined to the hospital. He had been in ill health, however, for a number of months. Medical care and kind attention was of no avail, as he had come to the time when his soul must depart from his body and return to its heavenly creator.
The deceased was born March 14, 1860 in Joliet, Illinois, in about 1864 he came with his parents to Winneshiek County. He taught school when a young man. He later went to North Dakota where he engaged in farming on a homestead.
He was married at Decorah, Iowa, in the year of 1888 to Miss Ellen Murray. To this union three children were born, all of whom survive. They are Mrs. Frank Galligan, of Lawler, Lloyd Dailey f Detroit, Michigan, and George Dailey, of Hill City, Minnesota. Shortly after his wife’s death, about thirteen years ago, he came to live with his daughter, Mrs. Frank Galligan, in Lawler, with whom he made his home until death.
Besides his three children he is survived by twelve grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Maggie Brannon, of Lawler and Miss Anna Dailey, of New Hampton, also four brothers, Henry, of New Hampton, Frank of Waucoma, William, of Rochester, New York and Charles, of Portland, Oregon. Mr. Dailey was honored, trusted and loved by all who knew him, and his passing will long be felt not only by his family but by his host of friends. He has always been a faithful member of the Catholic Church and lived up to the teachings of his church with splendid show of faith and belief.
The body was taken to East Grand Forks, North Dakota, Saturday and funeral services were held there on Monday morning in the Catholic church. Burial was made in the adjoining cemetery. Sympathy is extended the bereaved relatives and others who mourn his death.
