Dargaczewski Is Dead at 80

 

The "Mayor of Sheeley," colorful Nicodemus "Nick" Dargaczewski, died at his home at 2908 South Thirtieth street last night following a week's illness. He was 80 years old December 14.

Dargaczewski moved to Omaha from West Prussia about 55 years ago. A few years later he married Anna Trebon.

While the Sheeley Packing House was operating, Dargaczewski owned a saloon where he cashed checks for the packing house employees and through this and other favors he became one of the most popular men in the Polish settlement which came to be known as "Sheeley Town."

Politicians sought his favor and he became an ardent democrat, figuring in the first election of James Dahlman as mayor of Omaha.

For eight years, under Dahlman, Dargaczewski was city blacksmith. He also worked in several other departments.

He had been retired for the last six years.

Surviving are his wife; three daughters, Frances, Evelyn, and Mrs. T.F. Buras and two grandchildren, all of Omaha.

Services will be held Wednesday at 9 a. m. from teh Immaculate Conception Church, the parish of which he helped organize nearly 40 years ago. Burial will be in St. Mary Magdalene cemetery.

The body is at the Staskiewicz mortuary.
