Amy Dora WARDEN, daughter of Samuel L[anglon]. and Sarapata (sic, should be Sarepeta) A[deline (CLARK)] WARDEN, was born
near Grant City, Missouri, on her grandfather's farm on December 17, 1874. She grew to adulthood at Redding, Iowa.
On November 2, 1893, she was united in marriage to
Dr. John T[hompson]. MALOY, who practiced in Redding. Two children were
born to this union, Mrs. Lillian GILLELAND of Bedford, who has cared for her mother the last few years, and Dr. Wayland
H[oyt]. MALOY of Shenandoah, Iowa, who passed away on December 26, 1957.
After a few years residence in Redding, Dr. and Mrs. MALOY moved to Blockton and then to Bedford, in August of 1921. Both
remained in Bedford until their deaths. Dr. MALOY passed away in 1934.
Also preceding her in death are her parents, two sisters, Allie SMITH and Carrie SMITH and a granddaughter, Guinivere
Surviving her are one daughter, Lillian, two grandchildren, John T[hompson]. MALOY II, Rochester, N.Y. and Gordon BEARD of
Richland, Wash., five great grandchildren and five great great grandchildren; a brother, Frank WARDEN of Des Moines; and
two sisters, Vesta and Angie WARDEN of Des Moines.
Early in life she became a member of the Methodist Church and kept a deep interest in its progress as long as she lived.
She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star for more than 50 years. She served the Order as worthy matron. She was
an active member of the Travel Club for many years.
Her home was open to her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her friends. She will be missed by all who knew
It has been said by the poet Milton, "Death is the Golden Key that opens the place of eternity." She has that key
and we feel that she has already gone through the gate.
