"June 15, 1950 - The Reporter - Many friends and relatives filled Trinity Episcopal church here Saturday afternoon when double funeral rites for William Dick-Peddie, Sr, 91 and his daughter Mrs Daisy L Van Gorden were held. The Rev Paul Davis vicar officiated. Serving as pallbearers were six grandsons of Mr Dick-Peddie: J.W. Dick-Peddie Jr of Kansas City, Mo; W.A. Dick-Peddie of Danville Ky; Robert, James, Thomas Hufford, and John Dick-Peddie of Des Moines. The pallbearers were nephews of Mrs Van Gorden. Burial was in Evergreen cemetery with the Toy Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.

Mrs Van Gorden 57 preceded her father in death by only nine hours following a long illness. She died about four o'clock Thursday afternoon, and Mr Dick-Peddie passed away at two o'clock Friday morning. Both deaths occurred at the Dick-Peddie home where Mrs Van Gorden resided with her father. The elderly man suffered a stroke a few days before his death. In critical condition he was unaware that his daughter had died, nor did she know in the last days of her life that her father was stricken.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland on March 27, 1857, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Dick-Peddie, Mr. Dick-Peddie came to Emmetsburg 67 years ago. He was married to Alice Barbee McGrorty in Danville, Ky. on Nov. 11, 1886. They were the parents of five children, named above (William, Walter, EverLee, Rosa, and Daisy who just passed away). Mr. Dick-Peddie was associated with the Scottish-American Land Co., an early day real estate firm in Emmetsburg and he was also affiliated with the American Investment Co. and the Ormsby Land and Morgage company.

Two years ago he retired but he remained active and interested in his friends and their pursuits. A courtly, gracious gentleman of the old school, Mr Dick-Peddie was a familiar figure in the community. He was a member of the Country club and a great booster for Emmetsburg. He joined the Country club when he was about 90 years of age, and he jokingly told friends he hoped to enjoy its facilities for a number of years to come. He was a faithful member of Trinity Episcopal church here and was long prominent in the local parish. He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge.

He was unusually well posted on news and literary affairs. He and his daughter, Daisy, were exceptionally congenial and their companionship will be a pleasant memory for their family and friends.

He is survived by the children and grandchildren listed above. Also surviving are a granddaughter, Mrs. William Liement of Kansas City, Mo. and seven great grandchildren." Image.

Dick-Peddie. Her illness dates back for a number of years, but during the year previous to her death her health had been some better and it was hoped that she would gradually recover her full physical vigor. About a week ago she was seemingly taken with a severe headache and Friday evening she sank into a deep sleep from which she never awakened, but slowly during it her life ebbed away. Her daughter, Mrs. Rose Bright, was sent for but she did not arrive until the morning after the death of her mother.

The deceased maiden name was Alice Barbee McGrorty, and she was born in Danville, Kentucky. Dec. 1, 1860. She grew to young womanhood in her native state and received a liberal education. Her sister, Mrs. A.L. Ormsby, resided in Emmetsburg and she frequently came to visit her. It was here that she met Mr. William Dick-Peddie and on the 11th day of November 1886, they were married in Danville, Ky.

Following their marriage they came to Emmetsburg to reside, and aside from one year and a half the greater share of which was spent abroad, they have resided in this city. During her life in Emmetsburg, Mrs. Dick-Peddie identified herself with the interests of Emmetsburg and in every way possible did what she could for the social betterment of the town and community. She was a member of the W.R.C. of this city, and took an active part in it until failing health compelled her to desist from this activity. However she never lost her interest in the organization and when able was to be found at its meetings. She was a member of the Friday Club, and active in the work here until her health failed.

The work that she took the greatest pride in was the organization of what was called Company L.T. This was a company of boys and the object that she had was training the boys in patriotism and in all that tends for a strong, vigorous boyhood and manhood. In entertainments given by this company of boys her good work was plainly manifested.

She was the mother of five children, two boys and three girls. The daughters are: Mrs. Rose Bright, of Frankfort, Ky., Misses Daisy and Everlea Dick-Peddie, and William and Walter. Besides these children and her husband the immediate relatives surviving her are her aged father, Capt. A.S. McGrorty, of Danville, Ky., the latter being 97 years o!d, and her two sisters, Mrs. A.L. Ormsby, of Florence, Italy, and Mrs. Bryce, of Ashland, Ohio. The latter was here to attend the funeral.

These certainlv have the sympathyof all in their deep sorrow. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon from the house at 1:30 o'clock and from Trinity church at 2:00 p.m. The services will be in charge of the rector of the Episcopal church of Estherville." Image.
