LeMars Globe-Post
September 18, 1958


Anton J. Sartori Jr., former LeMars mail carrier, druggist and currently a banker and professional writer in Los Angeles, died suddenly at 12:05 this morning, according to word received this morning from his son, Anton Sartori, III.

For the past twenty-one years, Mr. Sartori, known as “Tony” to his many friends has been writing a column for the Globe-Post known as Olla Podrida. Excerpts from Olla Podrida were used in compiling a handsome book which Mr. Sartori sent to those who asked for it. Mr. Sartori was active in the affairs of the Manuscripters, a group of writers on the West coast who include some famous names. Among Mr. Sartori’s clients were many famous persons, explorers, actors, writers and politicians. He got the most kick out of a former Iowa woman, Adeline DeWalt Reynolds, an accomplished character actress who is still much in demand among California movie producers.

Mr. Sartori had been under a doctor’s care for several years due to a heart condition which eventually resulted in his death. He appeared to be improved and made two trips to LeMars with no noticeable ill effects. An indefatigable worker, Mr. Sartori’s sickness annoyed him mainly because it interfered with his literary activities, the last one of which appears in another section of today’s Globe-Post.

Anton J. Sartori was born March 31, 1883, at LeMars, the son of a prominent early day druggist here.

He attended St. Joseph’s parochial school, St. James parochial school, Clark and Franklin schools here and Westmar College. He was graduated from St. Mary’s College, in Kansas, and attended journalism night school at Los Angeles during recent years.

He married Miss Jennie Snyder, October 19, 1914. Since moving to California in 1927, he has been associated with the First Security National Bank of Los Angeles. Mr. Sartori had worked at the bank on the day he passed away. He had not been ill during the day. He had enjoyed the evening with his family and suffered an attack about 11 p.m., at which time he was taken to the hospital where he died.

Survivors are his wife, Jennie; his son, Anton; and three sisters, Rosemary, of LeMars, Mrs. Fred Lennon of Sioux City and Mrs. Isaac Struble, of Minneapolis.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

When Mr. Sartori was in LeMars he told members of the Globe-Post staff that he hoped to “move back to LeMars eventually.” At the time he was looking into the matter of buying a cemetery plot here. He said that his doctor had warned him that his heart might give out at any time.

Miss Rosemary Sartori, sister of Mr. Sartori, received a wire stating the cause of death was coronary thrombosis.
