d/o Pierre F. Jahant / Susan O'Malley

Her father was an honored member of the San Joaquin County Pioneer Society. He acquired some 320 acres of land in Acampo, and became one of the Pioneer Fruit Growers of the county. In 1912 she returned to Lodi from San Francisco, and purchased an interest in what was to become the Hale and Bawden Funeral Home here. Two years later having been left a legacy by her father, bought the remaining interest in the business, and also purchased the large residence of the late A. J. Larson on Elm Street. She converted the big structure into a modern funeral parlor, complete with reception room, offices, a chapel, garages for the automobile equipment and residence quarters on the second floor. In 1917 she acquired the Lodi Cemetery from Leon Villinger and, over the years, greatly improved the grounds. She set about to beautify the property with plants and flowers and, right up to her death, managed the business of the funeral home and the cemetery both. Seeing the need for more ground and the cemetery location, she purchased at least 10 more acres on the east of the original plot. She was a member of the Native Daughters of the Golden West, Hermann's Sisters, the Lodi Women's Club and the California Funeral Director's Association. She is survived by 1 daughter and 1 grandchild. Internment Lodi Cemetery. ref: Lodi News-Sentinel 28 Jan 1957
