Memorial of Martha A. Holland

read at the Homewood Meeting 5-3-1917

“Many changes have taken place in “The Association
during the past four years. Several of our
members have passed to the land beyond.
We lament the sacred ties that bound as in
loving intercourse, we fill in the numbers, but
the places in our hearts are still kept for those
who have gone. Our dear friend Martha A. Holland
had been a member for many years and we miss
her kind affectionate words, she seemed always
to think the best of her fellow mortals. A relative
of hers once told the writer – she had never known
her sister to do an unkind action, nor to speak
an unkind word.

Her who life was one of loving devotion to those
around her and her goodness to the poor will
long be remembered. The most beautiful
of her charities was a bequest of $5000 to the
Social Service League. In accepting this
generous and timely aid the gratitude of
the League was expressed in the following
words – “The members of the “Social
Service League” find renewed inspiration
for their growing work in the fact that one
living as worthily as did Martha A.
Holland, so highly appreciated the Leagues
services to homeless children and to the needy
