Mahony, D. A.
D. A. Mahony – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 20, 1879 – Obituary – Yesterday's mail brought Dubuque papers containing particulars of the death of Hon. D. A. Mahony, of that city. The proprietor of this paper took his first lessons in the art of printing under Mr. Mahony's tutelage in the Herald office of that city in 1851. Mr. Mahony was one of God's noble-men – an honest man – he was remarkably talented – a brilliant and vigorous writer, having an excellent command of language in which to express his thoughts. He was a profound thinker, a splendid logician, and a man of fine impulses, being generous and kind to those whom he considered his friends, and seldom spoke disparagingly of any one. He was firm in his political opinions, and when his mind had become set upon a principle it was like adamant – it took a power of argument to convince him of his error. He was honest in his convictions, and his soul was full of patriotism for the perpetuation of the republic which he so fondly loved. But his work in this land of trouble is over, and may his virtues and nobleness of heart be responsive to retain the memory of a brilliant man who has gone to that home from whence no traveler returns.

Mall, John
John S. Mall - Huerfano World - June 1, 1989 - Mass of Christian Burial was Wednesday from St. Mary Church in Walsenburg for John S. Mall, longtime educator and Superintendent of Re-1 Schools for 16 years. Mr. Mall, 79, died Sunday, May 28, 1989, in Huerfano County Hospital following an apparent heart attack at Triple G Truck Stop outside La Veta. Born in Leadville Apr. 24, 1910, he was an infant when his parents moved to New Castle. During the influenza epidemic in 1918, his parents and grandmother died, leaving four young children. John Mall, along with his brother, was placed in St. Vincent's Orphanage in Denver. He attended and graduated from Regis High School and Regis College with the highest academic honors. He worked his way through Regis with several jobs including janitorial. During the depression, he worked for the CB&Q Railroad and later taught school in a one room house south of Wiggins. He married the former Laura Kennish of Weldona Jan. 29, 1934, and continued his education at Colorado State College of Education in Greeley where he earned his masters degree. He taught in Orchard and Buckingham. During World War II, he worked at construction. In 1945, he went to Weldona, where he later was named Superintendent until 1952 when he moved to Walsenburg to become assistant principal of the high school under Professor S.M. Andrews. Following Andrews' death, he became principal until he was named Superintendent of Re-1 School District in 1954. Mr. Mall took an early retirement in 1979 but remained as "acting Superintendent" for brief periods between school administrations. He could still be seen grooming the high school football field and other chores that reflected his care and concern for students of Re-1. Just before his death, he presented Wilma Nugent, high school cook for 27 years, the John S. Mall Friend of Education award at the school. In 1976 when Re-1 built a new high school in Walsenburg, the Board of Education paid tribute by naming the new facility after him. Tuesday, in a Pueblo Chieftain interview, his youngest son, Louis, remembered his father; "Some men measure their success by their wealth but my father was not a rich man. He was never paid very much for what he did. He got wealth from the love that the community and the family had for him, and his love to the family and the kids." In addition to his school district activities, Mr. Mall was an active Rotarian for several years, a member of the Huerfano County Chamber of Commerce and on the boards of St. Mary Credit Union and Huerfano/Las Animas County Planning. Survivors include seven children, Thomas Mall, Roanoke, VA; Louis Mall, Westport, CN; Clara Donohoe, Fort Collins; Theresa Millarkey, Locust Valley, NY; Jeanette Fischer, New York City, NY, Kathy Russell, Brick, NJ, and Lorraine Haslee, Minturn; a brother, Frank Joseph Mall, Denver, 17 grandchildren and one great-grandchild and six nieces and nephews he and his wife, who died in 1967, reared.
