In Loving Memory
May 1926

    At dawn of day, may 29, 1926 Our Heavenly Father sent His angel messenger to call home our dear sister, Mrs. William H. Chapman.
    She was always a willing worker of the Ladies' Aid Society of St. mark's Lutheran church and we mourn her departure. We shall meet, but we shall miss her, but her memory will abide with us in our society until we too, once past the bend, shall meet as face to face, this faithful friend, whom we call dead.
     Resolved, That the sympathy of the Ladies' Aid Society be extended to the surviving friends; that a copy of these resolutions be recorded in the minutes of the society, and also a copy sent to the bereaved family, and to the village papers for publication.
     No one hears the door that opens,
          When they pass beyond our call;
     Soft as loosened leaves of roses,
          One by one, our loved ones fall.
                                                                                                          Mrs. F. A. Sullivan,
                                                                                                          Miss Eugenia Haynes,
                                                                                                          Mrs. Charles White.
