OBITUARY ~ IRENE (WILKINSON) MALOY

Irene Wilkinson, daughter of Fred and Carrie Wilkinson, was born August 17, 1891 on a farm south of Mount Ayr. She entered the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr on Sunday, October 9 and passed away on Monday, October 17, 1983, at the age of ninety-two years.

She attended school in Mount Ayr and West High in Des Moines, before graduating from Mount Ayr High School in 1910.

She attended Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, where she majored in public school music.

On November 18, 1912, she was united in marriage to F.B. Maloy of Redding, Iowa. The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in 1982 and were blessed with nearly one year together after that. They made their home on a farm in the Redding vicinity for a number of years before moving to the town of Redding. In 1940, they moved to their present home in Mount Ayr.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her step-mother, Alice Wilkinson; her brother, Roy Wilkinson; and a sister, Ethel Toombs; two sons, first-born, Jack Baird, who died in infancy, and Flavel Baird Maloy, Jr. (Bill) who was a casualty of World War II, while serving on a submarine in the south Pacific. She also was preceded in death by a son-in-law Ed Carr, and a step-granddaughter, Jeanne Bush.

In addition to her husband and her daughter, Marian Hughes of Lenox, she is also survived by her son-in-law,James Hughes; three grandsons, Patrick Carr and wife, Sue, of Spencer, Iowa; Michael Carr of Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Joseph Carr of Fort Madison, Iowa; two greatgrandsons, Edward and David Carr of Spencer; sister-in-law, Mrs. Bernice Lynch of Redding; five nieces including Mrs. Esse (Kathleen) Freed and Mrs. H.M. (Barbara) Seiffert of Redding, Iowa; two nephews; three step-granddaughters, Mary Walter of Lenox, Peggy Tripp of Kent and Kathy Azinger of Fort Madison; and thirteen step-greatgrandchildren.

Her great capacity to love was shared with her husband of so many years; her immediate family and the family she acquired by marriage. Through these relationships, which she treasured, she made the term "homemaker" creative.

In her lifelong affiliation with the Redding Methodist Church, she was willing to minister, particularly by sharing her musical talent and served as the church pianist for twenty-five years. She also taught private piano lessons for many years.

Mrs. Maloy was a thirty-eight year member of Chapter CK, P.E.O. Sisterhood of Mt. Ayr and an inspiration to other members as she attended meetings as recently as this past year. It is in these circles and other facets of community life that her loss will be most deeply felt.

Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 19 at the Mount Ayr United Methodist Church conducted by Pastor Milt Henderson. Music was by Mike Greene and Mrs. Rolfe Taylor.

Casketbearers were Craig Elliott, Steve Mitchell, Bernard Crawford, Bill Rusk, Sam Newton and Earl Schardein.

Burial was in Mount Ayr Rose Hill Cemetery.
