Death of a Former Resident
|John Daly, son of Philip Daly, of this place, died in Denver, Colorado, Aug. 7th, of appendicitis. His remains reached this city Monday morning, followed by the funeral at St. Patrick's church, Rev. Father Powers officiating, with interment in Holy Cross Cemetery.
Deceased was born in Anamosa and was 39 years of age. He left this vicinity ten years ago and has been in Cripple Creek, Colorado, for the past seven years, where he was engaged in mining, a part of the time for himself and the balance of the time employed as engineer. He accumulated a large amount of mining stock, and if he had lived could doubtless have acquired wealth. But his death marked the closing of a life of energy, industry and success and the attention given him during his illness by friends and associates indicated the high character of his loyalty and honesty, not always too frequently manifest in western mining towns.
Deceased was taken ill in Cripple Creek July 1, and a few days later he was removed to Denver to the home of W. R. Foley, where he was given every advantage of medical science, with good hopes of his recovery till two days before his death, when complications made it impossible. Relatives here were then wired and P. B. Daly started at once, but John died the same day, 12 hours before his brother reached his bedside.
He leaves a father, two sisters and four brothers—Sister M. Latina and Sister M. Lucidia of Des Moines, the former a sister of the deceased, and Mathew Daly, a brother, of Cedar Rapids, attended the funeral. Mr. and Mrs. Wm Foley and Mr. and Mrs. James Foley.
