Irma Manager and Wife Die
Death entered the Garlow family and robbed the community of two of its best known and respected citizens.
Fred H. Garlow, manager of the Irma hotel, was smitten with the influenza last week and after a very brief illness in which he contracted pneumonia, he died at an early hour last Saturday morning, after all that medical aid could do to save him.
Mrs. Irma Cody Garlow, his wife, took sick soon after his death and on Tuesday at eleven o'clock, she too passed over the great divide, death being attributed to heart trouble which was brought on by the influenza.
The passing away of these estimable people robs Cody of two of her very popular citizens and leaves a vacancy m the business circles which will be keenly felt. Always the first to take up anything of community interest, these two generous, free hearted people were loved and admired by all their associates.
Frederick H. Garlow was born on July 12th, 1881, to Joseph and Nancy Evelyn Garlow, at Panora, lowa, and was educated m the Panora public schools, finishing his education in the Omaha schools. He engaged in the stock feeding business with his father at an early age, and later he went to North Platte, Nebraska, where he conducted a similar business of his own.
It was in North Platte that he met and wooed the daughter of the famous old scout, Col. W. F. Cody, they being married there on March, 16, 1908. Three children were born to this union all of whom are living. Jane, aged 9; Frederick aged 7; and Billie Joe, aged 5.
Mr. Garlow soon after his marriage to Miss Irma Cody, managed the Scout's Rest ranch, owned by her father at North Platte for a couple of years, at the end of which time he came to Cody. For the past five years Mr. Garlow has conducted the Irma hotel, the famous hostry, built by the late Col. W. F. Cody, and named for his youngest daughter, Irma.
Irma Louisa Garlow was born at North Platte, Nebraska, on February 9th, 1883, was educated in the school of that city and finished her education at Madam Brown's, New York City.
She has always been a kind and indulgent mother and has taken a great part in the building up of the town which was founded and named after her most illustrious parent. At the time of her death she was one of the leading workers of the Red Cross local chapter, and was mother of the Sammy girls, an organization doing war work, which she had organized in Cody.
Mrs. Garlow is the last of the children of Col. Cody to survive him, two sisters, and one brother having gone before her. Mrs. Arta Cody Boal, and a sister and brother who died in their infancy. Mrs. Garlow is survived by her mother, Mrs. W. F. Cody of this city, and her three children. Mr. Garlow leaves to mourn his death, besides his children and Mrs. Cody, two brothers and two sisters, one sister, Mrs. A. L. Conaway, having preceded him to the greater world m 1900. The sisters and brothers living are Mrs. N. R. Bayson, and H. E. Garlow, Omaha; Sam Garlow.-10th Hospital Unit, American E. F. France and Mrs. George Wallicker of Billings, Montana.
The little Garlow children will make their home with Grandma Cody in Cody. Mr. and Mrs. Garlow were buried together at Riverside, the funeral of the former being held on Monday, and his wife was laid by his side on Thursday afternoon. Services were conducted by Rev. A. R. Chalmers of Christ church of which they were both members.
