FUNERAL OF MRS. EMILY MALLORY
Last Sad Rites are Impressively
The solemn ticking of the church clock was the only sound
which broke the silence for a moment, then the sweet strains of "Nearer, My God,
to Thee" floated out over the bank of greens and lilies and roses and over the
casket in which reposed the mortal remains of a mother in Israel.
funeral of Mrs. Emily Mallory was held yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at
the First Presbyterian Church. The pastor, Rev. D. S. Willis McFadden, conducted
the services. The choir was composed of C. Roy Tyler, Horace Barr, Miss Lucy
Kent and Miss Beatrice Morey. The pall bearers were H. A. Johns, D. L. Pratt,
Jonathan W. Brown, T. A. Black, J. M. Pinckney, and C. W. Jackson. A large
number of friends of the family, particularly the older residents of Sioux City
and members of the First Presbyterian church, were present. The employees of the
Warfield-Pratt-Howell company, with which L. W. Mallory, only son of the
departed woman, is connected, attended in a body.
After the choir had
sung, Dr. McFadden read from the words of Paul of the deep faith which is in all
Christians concerning the resurrection, "If in this life only we have hope in
Christ, we are of all men most miserable...For this corruptible must put on
incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
The ticking of
the clock could be heard above and between the distinct words of the minister,
such a solemn hush pervaded the church.
Dr. McFadden then spoke earnestly
and eloquently of Mrs. Mallory's long and useful life, of her example and her
achievements. All his words were directed to the thought of the mother. She had
been a good mother, the best friend on earth. She had lived a life of good deeds
and had been gathered into the kingdom full of years, peacefully and
At the end of the services the cover of the couch casket was
quietly put back, and there lay the good old mother, calmly sleeping. There were
tears in the eyes of all who gazed, but they were not the bitter tears of
disappointment and of agony for a dear one cut off in the midst of life's work.
All felt that the sleeper had finished her task and had earned her rest. And so,
as she lay there among the flowers the drops of grief which fell were but the
natural manifestations which come at parting for mortality.
was laid beside her husband in Floyd cemetery. The rain was falling steadily
from leaden skies, but a white marquee had been spread over the grave, and the
casket was lowered into a bed of flowers, with blossoms and green grass all
Seldom have the floral tributes been more numerous or beautiful
than those sent by friends of the family for the funeral of Mrs. Mallory. They
included many chaste pieces of the florists handiwork, among them being four
from the employees of the Warfield-Pratt-Howell company.
Mrs. Emily Mallory
(alternate spelling Emilie)
was the wife of Ward Mallory. She was originally interred in Floyd Cemetery but
was moved and re-interred in Graceland Park Cemetery, Sioux City, Iowa, on 22

For 50 years Mr.
Mallory had been one of the most colorful and widely known figures in the Sioux
City business world. He was 67 years old.
Evidently realizing that death
was near, Mr. Mallory, upon his return from Rochester, settled all his personal
business affairs and took other steps to release himself from business
connections in order that the business might continue without
Friends of Sick
Numerous friends of Mr. Mallory
visited him daily at the hospital. One of his oldest friends, Fred Sargent,
president of the Northwestern railroad, made a special trip to Sioux City last
week to visit Mr. Mallory.
Mr. Mallory was one of the most prominent and
philanthropic business men in the city. He was a constant friend of the sick and
needy. Life for Mr. Mallory was one continuous round of doing favors for other
persons, whether business associates or beggars.
From a job as office boy
at the low wage of $6 a week to a position in the business world that made him
the payer of the largest income tax in Sioux City for one year was the record of
Was Office Boy
First of the positions that Mr.
Mallory held in Sioux City was that of office boy for E. C. Palmer & Co.
Although born of parents who were blessed with a good education, Mr. Mallory was
not born with a "silver spoon in his mouth." The life story of the business man
reads like a romance snatched from the pages of a best seller.
a Wisconsin farm near Delevan, February 5, 1864, Mr. Mallory, at the age of 4,
moved with his parents to Marshalltown, Ia. where his father ran a livery stable
and young Mallory received his first grade school education.
family moved to Elk Point, S.D. where the elder Mallory ran a hotel. Lemuel was
13 years old. He attended the Elk Point high school and in the fall of 1869 he
entered Grinnell college on money earned during the summer. By working as a
lineman for a telephone company and sawing wood in his spare moments, Lemuel was
able to remain in college for two years.
Came Here in 1881
he left college and came to Sioux City. He held his first job as a bookkeeper
for 13 years. During that time, the concern changed ownership several times.
During the last three years of that period, Mr. Mallory was a partner and
treasurer of the firm, which was then known as the C. Shenkberg Co.
1894 he severed his connections with the company and entered the general
merchandise business at Alta, Ia. The following year he returned to Sioux City
and took a position as credit manager for the Howell-Warfield Co.
years later the firm joined with wholesale interests in Des Moines and became
known as the Warfield-Pratt-Howell Co. He retained his position as credit
manager until the death of R. M. Warfield in 1904, when he was made manager of
the concern. He continued as manager until 1925, when the Pratt-Mallory Co. was
Had Many Interests
In 1901 Mr. Mallory purchased
one-fourth interest in the Consumers Ice company. The following year he was
elected president of the company, a position which he held until his death. In
1912 he purchased stock in the Sioux City Brick and Tile Company and was elected
president of the company, a position which he held until 1918, when he was
succeeded by D. P. Mahoney.
In 1925 with E. S. Pratt, Mr. Mallory
purchased the Sioux City branch of the Warfield-Pratt-Howell Co. He incorporated
the Pratt-Mallory Co., for the employees, practically all of whom own stock. All
officers and directors are employees, except Julius A. Mallory, his
In 1929, Mr. Mallory purchased an interest in the Sibley-Hess Co.
which he incorporated as the Hess-Mallory Co. Charles A. Hess is president and
manager and Mr. Mallory was vice president.
In 1930, Mr. Mallory
organized the M & J Baking company, an expansion of a small bakery owned by
Fran Maxeiner and F. W. Lenhardt.
Mr. Mallory was
credited with being responsible for the phenomenal growth of the wholesale
grocery firm. He always stressed the point that employees in all departments
worked with him, not for him.
Not infrequently Mr. Mallory went to the
assistance of friends or employees. Nearly every employee of his firm has had
occasion to be grateful to the president. When an employee was sick, or a member
of his family needed medical or financial aid, Mr. Mallory always directed that
they be given the best of care and that the bill be sent to him.
employees on numerous occasions have been given donations of food for picnics or
parties by Mr. Mallory. Health department officials vouch for his generosity.
Often when there was a poor patient who needed food or medical air, which the
city could not provide, Mr. Mallory authorized the health department to take
care of the patient and send him the expense account.
Mr. Mallory was credited with providing as much food and joy for
the poor persons of Sioux City as any other man or single agency.
Mallory had been one of the principal donors to the Journal's Good Fellow Fund
and the Poor Boys' camp fund as well as numerous other benevolent movements in
Recently, Mr. Mallory donated a pipe organ to the First
Presbyterian Church in memory of his mother, the late Mrs. Emilie
Mr. Mallory and Cora Arthur, a Sioux City girl, were married in
1886. Survivors include his widow and two sons, J. A. Mallory, manager of the
Consumers Ice company, now known as the Central West Public Service company, and
L. C. Mallory, who is engaged in the cattle business at Homer, Neb.

orders. He was a member of Tyrian lodge, no. 508, AF&AM; Sioux City chapter
No. 26, Royal Arch Masons; Columbian commandery, No, 18, Knights Templar; Sioux
City consistory No. 5, and Abu-Bekr Shrine temple. He also was an active member
of the Elks Lodge for 27 years, and took an important part in the charitable and
other activities of that organization.
