Emma Thompson

Resolutions of Respect

    Death has again invaded our ranks and taken from our membership our beloved sister, Mrs. W. T. Thompson, who departed this life on Wednesday, July 23, 1896. Sister Thompson was a member of Woodlawn Baptist church. We, the members of the Ladies' Aid Society, adopt the following resolutions:
    Resolved, that as the Almighty has seen fit, in his infinite wisdom, to remove from us by death our beloved sister, Mrs. Emma Thompson.
    Resolved, that in the death of our sister the society has lost a good and useful member, the husband a loving wife, the children an affectionate mother and the community a good and useful woman, esteemed by all for her many virtues.
    Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be put on record and published in our Warren and Baptist state newspapers, and be presented to her husband, Dr. Thompson.
