Preamble and Resolutions

Whereas, God in his Providence has seen proper to call from our midst by death, our beloved friend, and President, Mrs. D. A. DECKER, and whereas, we, the members of the "Kewaunee Ladies Benevolent Society,? from the endearing social relations that existed between her and our selves, deeply realize the loss we have sustained in her death, therefore,

RESOLVED, That we, as members of this Society, bound to our young friend by ties of friendship, do earnestly sympathize with her Husband, and friends in their deep affliction.

RESOLVED, That we entertain a high regard for the deceased, and while we remember with pleasure her noble moral and virtuous qualities, that endeared her to all as a friend, we are forcibly reminded of that injunction, "Be ye also ready for in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh."

RESOLVED, That we tender a copy of these resolutions to the friends of the deceased, as a tribute of our respect for her memory and departed worth.

Adopted June 20th, 1861.

Mrs. L. W. VAUGHN, President.

Mrs. W. D. HITCHCOCK, Secretary.


Footnotes:  Submitted by John Whalen to be published by  The name Ross is often seen in old records as Roff.  Double s is often mistaken for double f in old records due to the old handwriting.  Even though the Bible records seem to be the surname ROFF, the obituaries included in the Bible are ROSS.  Among the artifacts inside this Bible is a letter which I have not transcribed but those who are curious may view the scan which is difficult to read.  The images from this family Bible can be viewed at Ross Bible Images.
