NAT C. MANEELY
The undertaking business of San Francisco has a most worthy representative in Nat C. Maneely, whose modern funeral
home is situated at 1363 Divisadero street. He was born in New York city, April 13, 1875, and is a son of Andrew
and Isabella Maneely.
Mr. Maneely was educated in his native city, and then became associated with his father in the latter's business.
At a later date, he was connected with the United States public health department in Washington, D. C., and subsequently,
in 1913, he came to San Francisco, California. The civic beauties and spirit of this community appealed to him
to such an extent that he immediately decided to make his residence here, and accordingly he became affiliated
with the Truman Undertaking Company. Being very observant and an assiduous student of the work, he quickly mastered
all of the fundamental details of the undertaking business, and in 1922 he assumed charge of the establishment,
which was then situated at 1919 Mission street, near Fifteenth. The business had been founded by Charles H. J.
Truman in 1899. In 1925, Mr. Maneely built his modern parlors at 1363 Divisadero street, which are completely equipped
to cater to the most discriminating patrons. He is a lover of beautiful flowers and plants, and has a conservatory
in connection, the products of which are used in funeral decorations. He is a member of the executive committee
of the San Francisco Funeral Directors Association. Mr. Maneely has a slogan for his business which interprets
his aims and methods admirably; it is: "Service measured not by gold, but by the Golden Rule."
On August 25, 1918, in Stockton, Mr. Maneely was married to Anna Paulson, who is a native daughter of San Francisco,
and the Daughters of the Nile, and a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, the Rebekahs,
Mr. Maneely is a thirty second degree member of the Masonic fraternity, belonging to all of the bodies, including
Islam Temple of the Mystic Shrine. He is also affiliated with the Knights of Pythias; the Kiwanis Club of San Francisco;
the Round Table Club; and the Executives Association (formerly the 100% Club). He has been very active in the Temple
Methodist Church, and is now one of the board of trustees.
