Nearby loved ones gone before thee
Gently breathing God knows best,
We will sadly, sweetly leave thee
In thy long eternal rest.
When the vespers bells are pealing
And the stars gleam high above,
At thy grave, so fondly kneeling
We will whisper words of love.

And when life’s long, weary Autumn
Wafts us to that other shore,
Will you meet us? Will you greet us?
Where we meet, to part no more.

Miss Mary Reilly was born in County Cavan, Ireland, Feb. 2nd, 1824, when 18 years old she came to this county, first making her home in Providence, R.I., where on April 2nd, 1844, she became the wife of Mr. Patrick Galligan.

This mother gave her best to the world and her children rose up and called her blessed. A family of splendid men and women wearing honors, some of them, all wearing honors of character and worth that challenge admiration.
She was a charming woman, graceful and sweet in her home, strong and useful in society and guided her children in the paths of usefulness with love and skill that gave the trend of usefulness to their lives and (illegible) brightness of her own character in them and their children.

Mrs. Ellen Henry departed from this life, April 19, 1924, at the home in Cresco, Iowa. Her death was due to the infirmities of old age. She was born near Galway, Ireland, 85 years ago. She was the last survivor of a family of eight children. Her oldest brother, John Daly, died 25 years to a day before her, and her mother dying when the deceased was six years old, her father dying two years later. Shortly after, accompanied by her oldest brother, John Daly and sister Mary and youngest brother Martin, she came to the United States and lived a few years in New York with an uncle. Later, with her brothers and sister, she came to Woodstock, Illinois, to the home of an uncle, Martin Cooney, where she grew to womanhood. Later, with her brother, Martin Daly, she came to Decorah to the home of her sister, Abby Malanapy, where she met and married John Henry on July 25, 1860.
Six children were born to bless this union and all but one survives to mourn the loss of a good mother. They are Mrs. Mary A. Courtney and Miles of Cresco, John, James and Thomas of Decorah. A daughter, Ellen, died November 15, 1884, at the age of 18 years.

Her husband passed away December 4, 1875, she outliving him almost 49 years. She lived on the old home farm 53 years and eleven years in her late home at Cresco, where she was cared for in her declining years by her daughter, Mary A. Courtney. She was a loving and sacrificing mother and a dutiful wife, who possessed indomitable will and unfailing courage. She had an indefatigible desire for the welfare of her children, for whom she labored incessantly. She was always a devoted Catholic, loyal to her church, family and friends, one who could look back on her life with the sweet assurance of life’s work well done, and she passed away as she had lived, in love and peace with God.
The funeral services were held on Tuesday morning, April 22, from her late residence, thence to the old home parish church near Bluffton, where solemn Requiem High Mass was celebrated by Rev. Father Courtney of Davenport, Rev. Father Mullen of Dubuque and Rev. Father Herbers of Bluffton parish. Father Courtney paid a fine tribute, in his sermon, to the good old pioneer. After the last sacred rites at the church, she was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery by the side of her husband and daughter, who long ago had passed to their heavenly home. Her six oldest grandsons were the pallbearers. The mute throng which followed her to her last resting place is testimony to the love and esteem in which she was held.
