To Our Dear Classmate, LILLIAN BARNIKER, Who Passed Away, Monday Morning, January 26, 1931
From this Earthly Garden of beautiful flowers, God in His Infinite Wisdom has plucked the fairest flower of all- a Lily- whose purity and grace He must have coveted. For he has seen fit to transplant her to His Heavenly Garden. Her likeness to a Lily was so obvious that her earthy parents named her The Lily. And she has indeed led the life of the purest of lilies.
Lillian Barniker our beloved president has been called to her last reward. She has left her Conformation Class a monument that time nor tide can destroy- a monument built of Good Works, on a foundation of virtue, ornamented with purity and grace.
We, the Confirments, extend to the bereaved family our deepest sympathy and our prayer shall be that God will give them strength to hear the heavy burden which He has laid upon them.
