Mrs. W.D. Trippe, Sr., 55, wife of Representative W.D.

Active in church work, especially the W.M.U., she was also deeply interested in eduaction and the P.T.A., as well as the Feltonian Woman's Club, of which she was president. Hers was a character of unusual beauth and sweetness, one whose ready sympathy went out to kindred friends and neighbors alike, and her bright presence will be greatly missed in all the circles in which she moved.

In Sweet Memory Mrs. W.D. Trippe

In the anxious hours of the night of May 11, 1927, the hovering angel of death stood by the dying body of our dear friend, shortly a long distant message out of Rome, Ga., conveyed to the friends of Mrs. Julia Trippe in Taylorsville, Ga., the sad news that she had passed away. Sorrow bore down upon the little village where she had lived almost all her life.

Her friends and loved ones had known for several days that her condition was desperate, but still were not prepared for the severe shock of the death of this beloved woman.

To know her was to love her, and we shall miss her sorely, but realize Heaven is made richer and nearer by her going there.

We could not and we will not question the goodness and wisdom of our Heavenly Father, but in the quiet hours and through ears comes that "why was she not spared to the home that loved her so much to the church and community that needed her to carry on her work," but this great comfort comes to our aching hearts all things work together for good to them that love God.

Therefore be it resolved:
1. That we bow in humble submission to Him who doeth all things well, for we now see but cannot understand.
2. That we the members of our W.M.S. extend to the dear members of her family our tenderest sympathy and consolation, and we pray that God's richest blessings may ever be upon them.

That a copy of these resolutions be sent to her family, one to the Tribune-News and a copy be placed upon the minutes of the Taylorsville Baptist Missionary Society.

W.M.S. Taylorsville Baptist Church
