Cousin of Evelyn Cady dies in Texas Evelyn Cady received a telephone call Tuesday morning, Aug. 16, from her cousin Edwin Cady's wife, of Houston, Tex,, telling her Edwin had died that morning in the Veterans hospital there following a coronary attack. For the past several months he had a loss of proper balance and was using a cane. He had resigned as pipe organist and choir director of the Riverside Memorial Methodist church, a position he had held for over 20 years. He continued to teach piano at his home. Services were held in the church he had served so many years. Edwin Francis Cady was born in Algona to Willis "Pat" Cady and Mary Simpa Cady Feb. 5 1905. The family moved to Ma son City when he was about 10 years old. He began his studies of the piano and at the age of 16 was pianist at the Bijou theatre. He enlisted when World War 1 was declared and served in the medical corps at Fort Leavenworth, Kans., always hoping he would be sent overseas. He was sent to Chicago, 111., for several months before being mustered out. There he had time to attend a mortician school and received his diploma as a fully licensed practitioner. When on a visit here one time, the late Warren Laird tried to persuade him to become a partner. While in Chicago Edwin became acquainted with a girl from Mississippi who had completed nurses training at Cook "ounty hospital and was taking work in the study of child welfare and baby feeding. After his severence from the army, they were nrarried and went to Wichita, Kans., where he played in >* theatre and she continued her work. A better offer Was given him at Houston and they moved there and instead of theatre work, he became pipe organist in a church. Two daughters were born to them, Mary (Mrs. Leonard Rubenstein) of State College, Pa., and Frances (Mrs. Robert Zsoh- appel) of Austin, Tex. Her husband is a doctor. There are five grandchildren. An uncle, Charley Simpa, very aged, lives at Mapleton. Edwin's brother Dr. Gerald Cady of Mason City died several years ago and his children, are Dr. Jerry Cady, of San Diego, Patrick, of San Francisco, and Jean (Mrs. Murray Lawson) and two children of Mason City. Dr. Gerald Cady's widow Julia also lives at Mason City. The funeral date had not been determined when Mrs.- Cady phoned Evelyn, much depending on plane reservations from State College. , Because of his annual visits here over the years, and because of having many times been guest organist at the Methodist and Congregational churches, he will be well remembered.
