E. W. KELLY DEAD
On Thursday evening occurred the death of Mr. E. W. Kelly at his home in this city after an illness of about two weeks. The funeral was held Saturday forenoon and was largely attended, many having been present from a distance. Services were conducted at the Catholic church by Rev. M. J. Costello, who offered up a requiem high mass. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. The pallbearers were W. E. Cullen, E. F. Kelly, Alex Jennings, Wm. O'Brien, John Mohan and John Donovan. The remains were laid to rest in St. John's cemetery.
Mr. Kelly was born in the county of Tipperary, Ireland, in 1821. He came to the United States when quite young and was among the first few and sturdy pioneers of Palo Alto county. He was a pleasant, kind, neighborly, warm-hearted gentleman and enjoyed the good will of all who knew him. He was quite and unassuming and was contented with his sphere in life. The surviving mourners consist on one son, W. H., and six daughters. The latter are Mesdames John and Louis Maguire, of Ayrshire; John McNally, T. W. Brandley and T. B. Wash, of this city, and Miss Aggie who lives with her mother. The general sympathy of all who know them is extended to those whose heads are bowed in sorrow.
