Funeral of Mrs. Maloney Held Thursday
Services Conducted at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church; Remains Laid to Rest in Parochial Cemetery; Large Attendance at Last Sad Rites
A short mention was made in last week’s Times of the death of Mrs. T. E. Maloney, who passed away in the Coleman hospital Monday afternoon, May 11th, following a caesarian operation. Twin babies were born to the young mother before her death. Both are real hearty. The remains of Mrs. Maloney were taken to the home of her sister-in-law, Mrs. Frank Sullivan. The funeral was held Thursday forenoon. Services were conducted at St. Patrick’s Catholic church, the Rev. Father Savage officiating. The church was packed by sorrowing relatives and friends of the deceased. Scores of Graettinger people were present. Father Savage preached an eloquent and touching sermon on Motherhood and paid a beautiful tribute to the deceased. Miss Elisabeth Spies of Graettinger sang a solo. Scores of beautiful and costly floral decorations, the gift of sorrowing relatives and friends, were in evidence at the last sad rites.

Mildred Condeca Truesdell was born in Graettinger August 13, 1907. She grew to womanhood here and received her education in the local schools. She was a member of the commencement class of ’25. After completing the course of study here she entered the Coleman hospital at Estherville to take the nurses’ training course. She graduated with the class of ’28 and subsequently engaged in the nursing profession. On August 21, 1929, she was united in marriage to Mr. Timothy Edward Maloney, of Escanaba, Michigan. She and her husband made their home at Escanaba. Mrs. Maloney is survived by her husband and by her two daughters, Patricia and Nancy. Her sad and untimely death is also deeply mourned by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Truesdell, of this locality, her brother, Owen, of Staples, Minnesota, and a brother Oliver and a sister Maxine at home, and her aged grandmother, Mrs. O. J. Truesdell, of Beresford, South Dakota, as well as numerous other relatives.

The death of Mrs. Maloney, a young wife and mother, has caused a feeling of sadness and sorrow in this community. Mildred Truesdell, as she was so familiarly known by all, was a Graettinger girl. She was born here, grew to young womanhood here and graduated from the Graettinger schools. She was a pleasant, genial and always good natured. Her sunny disposition and her lady-like demeanor endeared her in the hearts of all. Upon the completion of the course of study here she entered the Coleman hospital and graduated as a trained nurse two years later. She was successful as well as capable and competent in her chosen profession. A year ago last August she became the wife of the man of her choice. She was a loving, devoted wife and their short married life was filled with happiness. The hopes, the plans, the expectations of her last few weeks of life are hardly necessary to mention. She went into the valley of the shadow of death and failed to return. She became the mother of two healthy, hearty baby girls and was then called by death. That this worthy, Christian wife and mother as well as devoted daughter and loving sister is happy in heaven there is no doubt. God does all things for the best and we mourn because we do not understand. To the sorrowing, heartbroken husband and to the grief-stricken parents, brothers and sisters and other relatives the Times extends heartfelt sympathy.

Among those who were present for the funeral in addition to the immediate members of her family were Mr. and Mrs. Chester Wright and Mrs. O. J. Truesdell, of Beresford, South Dakota; Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Stamp and Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Stamp, of Strawberry Point, Iowa; and Attorney and Mrs. Maloney, of Clinton, Ia. (Graettinger Times, Graettinger, IA, May 21, 1931)
