DIED: At her home in this village, Thursday at 1 a.m., Feb. 16th, 1888, [b]KATE[/b], wife of [b]MILO WHITING[/b], aged 46 years and 7 months. [b]CATHERINE GOO[/b], (known as Kate), was born in Ashford, Cattaraugus County, July 17, 1841. She was married July 12, 1864. Three children have been given them, two of these dying in infancy, the other, [b]Archie G., [/b]who survives, has been confined to his bed from lung trouble for the past two weeks. Mr. Whiting has also been confined to the house for several weeks. Mrs. Whiting was formerly a member of the Free Will Baptist Church at Pike. Nearly two years ago she united with the M. E. church of this place. She retained consciousness until the very last, giving messages to her family, and to her aged mother she sent these words: “It is all rest and peace”. Mrs. Whiting was held in high esteem by all who knew her. The funeral took place to-day from the residence at 1 p.m. Rev. J. M. Field, of Machias, preaching the sermon. The sympathies of a large circle of friends are with the bereaved family.
: Resolutions of Condolence: At a regular review of Centre Tent No. 28 K.O.T.M. held in their hall Feb. 22, 1888, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It had pleased an all-wise Father in his infinite wisdom to remove from this life, the beloved wife of Sr. Kt. M.M. Whiting and mother of Sr. Kt. Archie Whiting, and Whereas, It is but just and right that we, in some manner, recognize her noble character and Christian virtues, therefore be it Resolved that we, members of Centre Tent No. 28, while we humbly bow to this dispensation of Providence, no less sincerely mourn in sympathy with our esteemed brothers, and Resolved That in the death of Mrs. Whiting, the community has lost a most valuable member and her husband suffers the loss of a devoted companion, and the son is deprived of the invaluable examples of a true Christian mother. Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be presented to the Tent, and a copy presented to the YORKSHIRE PRESS with a request for publication. MYRON E. FISHER, JOHN HUNT, T.H. WALPOLE, Committee.
: Resolutions of Condolence: Whereas, it has been a part of the Divine plan that man should not always dwell upon the earth with those who are dear to him here, but that he should meet with a change either sooner or later in life which change is called death, and Whereas, This transition, called death, has removed from the home of our friend and companion, ARCHIE G. WHITING, a beloved mother whose kind precept and exemplary Christian life have been so forcible as to imprint themselves indelibly upon his mind, and Whereas, by the death of MRS. KATE WHITING, an affectionate wife and kind neighbor has been removed from this community, therefore, resolved, that we members of Y.C.C. Tel. Co. to our associate, ARCHIE G. WHITING, and his father, MILO M. WHITING tender our sincerest sympathy, and, as we can not fully realize the depth of their sorrow, we would humbly commend them to Him in whom was her trust during life, and Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be presented to the afflicted father and son, and one to the YORKSHIRE PRESS with a request for publication. Y.C.C. Tel. Co.
: In Memory of our Sister: Whereas, It has pleased our Heavenly Father to remove from among us our friend and sister in Christ, KATE WHITING, that in her death our church an community have lost a most earnest and affectionate friend and neighbor who was loved by all; that in her death the family have lost a dear wife and mother, who in her pure and noble life has left and example which they and all of us will do well to follow; that we tender to the grief stricken husband and son, ARCHIE, our deepest sympathy in this their hour of bereavement. Our loss is her gain. One more link has been broken from our fraternal chain. We had the pleasure of knowing our sister some years ago, and she had that same kind of friendly way then as in her last days. She was loved by her schoolmates, school and Sunday school scholars who have never forgotten the good advice she gave the, though it was a good many years ago and have grown to manhood and have families of their own. May we each remember her noble example. As we drop the sympathizing tear on her grave, may we so order our lives that when the angel of death calls for us we can fold our hands and say, “Thy will, not mine be done”. MRS. MARY PERSONS, MRS. NETT CHENEY
