Martin W. Mealey
, a well known local photographer, died yesterday afternoon at 1:15 o'clock at his home, corner of Washington and Seventh Streets of heart disease. Though he had been ill for two or three weeks and for months had not enjoyed real good health, it was not believed his condition was especially alarming until a few minutes or possibly an hour before his death.

After feeling badly for a few days, Mr. Mealey took to his bed a week ago Friday but was up again on Monday and went to Tempe to take some pictures at the Normal school. Returning he went to bed feeling very tired and never left it again except for a few minutes at a time. Tuesday night he coughed considerably but declared yesterday morning that he never felt better in his life. He was always cheerful and hopeful. During the forenoon yesterday he began to get worse and finally Dr. Ball, a friend of thirty years standing, was sent for but when he arrived the patient was lapsing into unconsciousness.

Mrs. Mealey, who has been her husband's constant companion and nurse during his hours of illness was overcome by the suddenness of the blow and could hardly appreciate the change that took place between morning and noon. They have no daughters, and only a single son, Will P. Mealey of Seattle, formerly a resident of this city. He was informed by wire of his father's death and it is expected he will come as quickly as possible, though it will take four or five days to make the trip. He had not been heard from last evening and it is possible he is out of the city and will not get the sad telegram until this morning.

The deceased was born at the head of St. Peter's Bay, Newfoundland, 59 years ago last October and was the youngest of thirteen children, all of whom have preceded him to the grave. When about a year old his parents moved to Boston and later the family moved to Lowell, Mass. Thirty six years ago Mr. Mealey moved to Colorado where he lived for twenty three years, having suffered with asthma. He took quite a prominent part in business and public affairs in Colorado in those days but deciding that he had worn out the climate he came to Phoenix about thirteen years ago. He was engaged in the photograph business on East Washington Street almost from the time of his arrival here until a few months ago when he bought the gallery established by the late F.A. Hartwell on South Second Street, conducting it until his death.

Mealey Funeral

Geissinger conducted a religious service after which the casket was placed in the care of the Independent Order of Foresters, who escorted it to the grave. There were many beautiful floral offerings.

BERLIN - Sally Sophie Zimmerman died peacefully on Sunday December 30, 2001 at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin, Vermont. She was born Sophie Morris in Brooklyn, New York on October 4, 1916. Her mother, Mabel Pynn and her father, Samuel Morris were originally from Newfoundland, Canada. They had come separately to New York City to make their way in this exciting town. She was a seamstress and an embroiderer of fine children's clothing, and he was a structural iron worker. He told his children with pride about his work on the iron structure of the Empire State Building.

Mabel and Samuel married and had three children; Mabel, Sophie, and Sam. Young Sophie was a secretary in New York City when she met her future husband William Eric Arthur Zimmerman. He was a B-17 crew member with the 8th Air Force, 96th Bomber Group. They fell in love and were married on May 5th, 1943. He was stationed in England. He survived 35 successful bombing missions over Germany as a top turret gunner and returned highly decorated.

Sally and Bill settled on Long Island and started their family. They had two children. A son, William Bruce Zimmerman, born July 9th 1944, and currently living in Portland, Oregon. A daughter, Eleanor Carol (nee Zimmerman) Woodfield was born on December 12, 1946, and is currently living in Calais with her husband, Michael Woodfield and daughter, Mila. Bill worked for Trans World Airlines as a flight engineer. His career with T.W.A. spanned over 50 years. He died in May of 1995.

Sally spent her time as a homemaker, loving mother, and community member. Often she would need to handle her growing family alone as Bill would sometimes be away for two weeks as he flew on long trips overseas for T.W.A. She was also active in the church, church choir, and scouting. She showed her love not only to her family and friends, but to the many pets both furry and feathered over the years in the Zimmerman household. Sally, her children, and her husband also enjoyed their many travels throughout Europe, and the United States. She is predeceased by her parents; her sister, Mabel; her brother, Sam; her stepmother, Florence Morris of Toronto, Canada.

She will be remembered by her many friends and relatives in Vermont, Florida, Maine, Oregon, and Illinois. Donations in her name can be made to your local Humane Society. Her son chose the following poem by Tracee Anne Beaty in memory of "Mom".
A thousand times I called you Mom.
You answered every call.
Regardless of my needs or wants,..
You filled it. big or small.
Denied yourself those hidden wants,
So I could have my fun,
I never knew until I aged,
How motherhood was "done".
Today, my children ask of me,
Much like I asked of you.
And, yet without a second thought,
"I'll do what I can do".
With due respect and countless thanks,
My heart these words come from,
No other woman in my life,
Means more to me than Mom.
