IN MEMORIAM - WM. MANNION 1926
It was a sad week to chronicle the death of our friend William Mannion a man as God ever made. He left his family and grandchildren to whom his name will be tenderness and love so long as they may live. His years were long but full of life from the cradle to the grave.
Just a fortnight ago the writer had the pleasure to meet him, and was surprised to see his countenance, though usually calm and sedate, light up with the sweetest smiles and he told me he had a nap and was enjoying a dream which carried him back to the happy day on which he received his first communion, and that he was weaning his soul from all earthly affections, lifting its aspirations to heaven and laying its prayers at the foot of the divine throne. Thus in dreaming and praying, he spent his illness, the last illness he was destined to spend on this earth.
The funeral was held from St. Peter's Church on March 15. Rev. Father Giblin being the celebrant of the solemn requiem mass. The remains were laid at rest in Calvary cemetery, a large concourse of people. May he rest in peace. Mr. Mannion's six sons were pallbearers.
Mr. Mannion is survived by his wife, Mrs. Mary Mannion, and ten children, namely: George and Leo of Marshall, Minnesota; William of Obert, Nebraska; John and Laurence of Sioux City, Iowa; Michael, Charles and Joseph of Newcastle, Nebraska; Mrs. Michael Dougherty of Newcastle, Nebraska and Mrs. Minnie Rice of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Mr. Mannion is also survived by thirty-seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
He was born in Ireland and was 86 years old at the time of his death. He was the oldest member of the Holy Name society of St. Peter's parish. The members of which escorted the remains to the church and cemetery.
Golden Wedding Is Celebrated
Mr. and Mrs. Mannion Recipients of Many Congratulations from Friends.
It is with pleasure that we are able to account to our readers the fiftieth wedding anniversary of this highly esteemed couple, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mannion. Mr. and Mrs. Mannion were married April 15th, 1873 at the little village of Jackson and on April 15th, 1923 all of their family with the exception of two, were able to help them commemorate the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary.
This aged couple are the proud parents of twelve children, nine boys and three girls, all who came to bless their home while they were residing on their farm south of Newcastle. Mr. and Mrs. Mannion lived on their farm for 27 years and the remaining 23 years of their wedded life has been spent at their present village home.
For 52 years Mr. Mannion had been practically deaf but two years ago his hearing was restored and he tells us that now he is able to hear the faintest whisper. Mr. and Mrs. Mannion are hale and hearty for their ages. Mr. Mannion being 83 and Mrs. Mannion 70.
They were the recipients of many valuable and useful gifts. A silver-gold inlaid urn, three $5 gold pieces, a bronzed mantle clock and a rug are a few of their many remembrances that will help them to remember the good wishes of their friends. At high noon a delicious dinner so much like these mothers can plan and prepare was served to about fifty relatives and intimate friends.
The children who gathered at the parental home Sunday April 15th were as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Mannion, Marshall, Minn.; Mrs. Elizabeth Dougherty and family, Daily; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mannion of Hartington; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Mannion, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Mannion, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Mannion all of Newcastle; Leo Mannion of Marshall, Minn. and Charlie Mannion who makes his home with his parents.
