John C. Mahaney died Monday at 7:00 o'clock at the age of 67 years. Funeral services were held Tuesday at 2:00 o'clock at Ozark school house, east of Rogers, and were conducted by Rev. R.M. Thompson and Rev. T.B. Clark of the First Christian church. John C. Mahaney was born in Kentucky but was taken to Mt. Vernon, Ill. when a child and there grew to manhood. Mr. Mahaney's parents moved to Benton county about forty years ago where they have since made their home. Mr. Mahaney lived for many years on White river where he was always a welcome guest in every home. He was married to Miss Annie Cook in 1889 and to this union were born four children of whom three daughters are living: Mrs. Pearl Day, now at Claremore, Okla.; Mrs. Mary Key, who lives on White river, and Mrs. Winnie Martin of Rogers, who has so faithfully and tenderly cared for her father during his long, painful illness. He leaves also two sisters, Mrs. Dollar and Mrs. Burdick, who live in Rogers, and five grandchildren. Mr. Mahaney was a kind, helpful neighbor; always ready to lend aid wherever it was needed. His dealings with his fellowman was in accord with the Golden Rule. He leaves many friends who mourn the loss of one whose whole life was that of honest good to all his associates and neighbors.
