Prominent Caterer Died November 26
Mrs. Helen Mahammitt, age 87 years, of 2703 Binney Street, one of Omaha's foremost caterers, died Monday November 26, 1956 in a local hospital after a month's illness. For 45 years her culinary abilities graced the city's tables.
In 1905 Mrs. Mahammitt formed a catering business with her late husband, Thomas P. Mahammitt. Her interest in preparing good food was such that in 1927 she ended a European vacation trip by taking home a diploma from a Paris cooking school.
Following her husband's death in 1950, Mrs. Mahammitt retired.
She also conducted cooking schools and was interested in seeing new brides get off on the right foot by learning how to prepare a delectable meal.
Mrs. Mahammitt was a member of St. Philips Episcopal Church, and for many years president of St. Andrews Guild.
Mrs. Mahammitt is survived by three nieces; Mrs. Edessa Spears of Battle Creek, Michigan; Mrs. Alice Sparks of Toledo, Ohio; and Mrs. Daisy Lacey of Pasadena, California.
Funeral services were held Thursday November 29, 1956 at 2:00 P.M. from the St. Philips Episcopal Church with Father S. N. Jacobs officiating.
