Margaret Nulty ~~~1880-1904 The Ponca City Daily Courier June 4, 1904 Submitted by: Shirley Harlan
The early death of Maggie Nulty is mourned by her mother, Ella Nulty, and family. Maggie came here, with her parents, a bright and healthy child, when our city was but a few months old. She was educated in our schools and later became a favorite teacher with all who had the good fortune to come under her firm, but gentle guidance. She also worked during vacations, having been at different times a valuable assistant both at the bank and at our leading mercantile establishments.
The beginning of her sickness dates over two years back, when what seemed at first only a slight trouble, became more complicated, and after her school closed for the year, she went to the mountains, where for seventeen long months she waited for help, but without avail. She returned home last December and since then has been a model of patience and resignation, during long weeks of suffering from consumption (tuberculosis).
She was conscious to the end, received the last sacraments of the church, and bid her mother and sisters as well as those friends that were with her at the time, goodbye, and realizing the sorrow her death would cause to those who loved her so dearly she exclaimed, "O, Jim, my darling brother, you will be alone with your sorrow, but my dying thoughts are with you.
She died Sunday eve at 8:35 and the funeral was Tuesday morning from the Catholic Church, Rev. R. Sevens officiating. Burial was in the St. Mary's Catholic section of the Ponca City IOOF Cemetery.
Margaret M. Nulty was born Jan 30, 1880 and died May 29, 1904, the daughter of Patrick and Clara Ella Nulty.
