In Memoriam Ora Eubanks
To the worthy matron, sisters and brothers of Olive Branch, Chapter, No. 62, O.E.S. Summerville, Oregon. We, your committee of condolence, beg leave to submit the following:
Whereas, It has pleased God to remove from our Chapter our dearly loved sister, Ora Eubanks, thereby severing another link in the golden chain by which we are bound together. Resolved, That it is but a just and loving tribute to say that our Chapter has lost a faithful member, one whose pure life and good deeds will ever be cherished in our fondest memory. Resolved, That we sincerely condole with the family of the deceased on the dispensation of divine providence to afflict them, and commend them to look to God in this dark hour of sorrow, as one who is able to comfort them; and standing beside the broken column may we with Martha’s trustful faith look beyond the shore of time and know that our sister, though lost to mortal vision, is only waiting to welcome us to our eternal home. Resolved, That these resolutions be published, a copy sent to the members of tthe family and that they be placed upon the records of the Chapter.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace.
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan His work in vain –
God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
Elgin Recorder Friday November 18, 1904
