    In disposition, Mrs. Whipple was bright and cheery,
finding her greatest enjoyment in the domestic life. Her
home was made with her children where she busied her-
self with the household duties and fine needle work, all
which she was an expert, many pieces of beautiful em-
broidery and lace work testifying to her skill in that
direction.
    The Fort Atkinson chapter deemed it a great honor
and pleasure to have counted her as one of its members.
The presentation to Mrs. Whipple of the solid gold spoon
which is the gift of the National Society D. A. R. to every
real daughter, was the occasion of a pleasant little so-
cial meeting at the home of Mrs. 0. S. Cornish, Fort
Atkinson.
