1939---Michael Joseph Killeen, 1877-1939
Mike Killeen is Called to Reward – This community was grieved to learn of the sudden passing of Mike J. Killeen, 61, at the hospital in Hastings, at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Febr. 14. Mike, although his health had been failing rapidly the past few years, was a familiar figure on the streets of Wolbach as even during the last few weeks he had enjoyed visiting in the stores. Besides his wife, four daughters and a son survive. Funeral arrangements were still incomplete as we go to press.
Wolbach Messenger, Wolbach, Nebraska, Thursday, February 16, 1939
M. J. Killeen Is Laid to Final Rest – With the Rev. Fr. Michael Szczesny celebrating the high mass, and the choir of the O’Connor church singing the mass, friends and relatives of this community paid their last respects to the memory of M. J. Killeen at the St. Joseph’s Catholic church here Saturday morning. Interment was made in the O’Connor Catholic cemetery. Pall bearers were Thomas Silk, John Noonan, George Brannen, Charles Murphy, Pat Steenson and L. J. Warren. Michael Joseph Killeen was born at Nevada, Illinois, February 20, 1877. It was there that he was baptized in the Catholic faith. He came to Nebraska with his parents at the age of nine years and lived on a farm west of Wolbach. February 21, 1905 he was united in marriage to Dorothy Ralph, and to this union five children were born. Mr. and Mrs. Killeen settled on his farm in Fairdale where they resided until two years ago. Due to ill health and suffering from high blood pressure and a kidney ailment, Mr. Killeen retired from the farm to take up residence in this community. February 2 he entered the hospital at Hastings for treatment but his condition was so advanced that he was unable to recuperate and passed away following a stroke February 14, 1939, at the age of 62 years, 11 months and 14 days. He was preceded in death by two brothers and one sister. Those left to mourn his death are his wife, one son Gerald of Wolbach, four daughters, Mrs. T. H. Henningsen, Mrs. Roy Nealon, both of Phoenix, Ariz., Mrs. Oren McIntyre of Wolbach and Peggy Jean at home. Three grandchildren, Dorothy Nealon, Mickey McIntyre and Donnie Henningsen, four sisters, Mary Killeen of Omaha, Mrs. John Connors of Phoenix, Ariz., Mrs. Ella Fitzpatrick of Greeley and Mrs. John Smith of Greeley, and a host of other relatives and friends also survive. During his more active years, and while on the farm, Mr. Killeen was honest in his efforts toward fostering community progress and spirit and took a great interest in this endeavor. Mr. Killeen was president of the Farmers Cooperative Creamery board of directors and was a stockholder and director more than twenty years. While a resident of the Fairdale community Mr. Killeen was active in promoting better roads. "Mike" will be missed from a community where he was known by young and old, and where he had made a host of friends and acquaintances. The Messenger joins the community in extending most heartfelt sympathy to a bereft family. Among those who attended the funeral services for M. J. Killeen here Saturday morning were: Dr. and Mrs. Glassmaker and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Semper of Spalding, Miss Mary Killeen and Peggy Fitzpatrick of Omaha, Mrs. Ed Callahan and Edward and Mary of St. Paul.
