The body will lie in state at the Church from 3 pm Wednesday until time for the services.

Loney, retired from active duties Sept 1, 1932 after having served the St Joseph parish for 33 years, and was succeeded by the Rev. Fr. William C. CASEY, formerly pastor of the St Mary Church in Urbana. His advanced age and ill health caused his retirement. Through his long years of association with the St Joseph Church, Fr. LONEY made hundreds of friends in Springfield, not in his parish alone but throughout the city and among other congregations as well. He was instrumental in the building of a new school in the St Joseph parish. He had redecorated the church walls and put in new windows, besides bringing about many other changes in the parish buildings. He had instituted a number of progressive ideas in the church and St Joseph Schools. He was born in Clark County 26 years before the founding of the St Joseph parish. He received his first education in the country schools and his higher education at Wittenberg College; St Xavier College at Cincinnati, and Mt. St. Mary Seminary, Baltimore, MD. He was ordained on June 20, 1889 at the age of 33. Before taking charge of the parish in this city, he had served as pastor of the Catholic Church at Reading,O. and during that pastorate it was through his friendship with the Rev. Fr. CONWAY, then pastor of the St Joseph parish, that he obtained from the Sisters of Notre Dame a beautiful hand carved altar which he donated to this parish. Having been reared in Springfield, the Rev. Fr. LONEY assumed the duties of the St Joseph parish not as a stranger, but as one who had followed the founding, the growth and the general history of the church. Knowing it as he did, his thoughts turned many times to the time when the church would celebrate its silver jubilee. The year 1909 was a goal to be reached and the intervening years were to be spent in the completion and the beautifying of the church. By 1902, he had the oaken pews and two years later through the generosity of friends and members of the parish he had the stained glass windows. One window, that of the Holy Family, placed high in the choir was the gift of the Rev. Fr. LONEY. On Sept 26, 1909, Fr. Loney and his congregation celebrated the establishment of St Joseph as an independent parish. On that day, the Most Rev. Henry MOELLER came from Cincinnati and with him were many visiting priests to congratulate the Rev. Fr. LONEY. Four years before the celebration of the silver jubilee, the number of families in the parish had increased to such an extent that the work became too strenuous for one priest and the Most Reverend Archbishop sent the Rev. James FOGARTY to assist him. By the summer of 1913, Fr. Loney had the parish well organized and the church completely furnished. During the summer of 1917, Fr. LONEY because of failing health was unable to say mass and he was compelled to be a patient at the Good Samaritan Hospital in the autumn and winter of 1918-1919. Although slightly improved in health following the World War, but not by any means well, he completed the new St Joseph High School, Kenton and East Sts. With ill health weighing heavily upon him, Fr. LONEY continued his ministrations to the ill of the parish, but was compelled to lay down the burden of active interest in the church in 1932. Fr. Loney leaves a sister, Miss Margaret LONEY, of this city. The body was taken to the O'Brien Funeral Home.
