Rev. William Hiram Foulkes, pastor
of the First Presbyterian Church, of
which Mrs. Ladd was a lifelong mem
ber, last night paid the following
tribute to the deceased:
"Anjf word that I might say concern
ing the Christian life and character of
the late Mrs. W., S. Ladd would fall
short of the mark. The beautiful sim-
I plicity of her faith, coupled with the
gracious unostentation ot ner wonts
will ever be. an inspiration to those
who knew her. Jntense loyalty to the
church and In particular its reat mis
sionary concerns, ' characterized her
life. Though well past the allotted age,
she was unusually' keen and forceful in
the grasp of affairs. We are all inex
pressibly shocked by the tidings of
her death, yet we feel that it Is only
the glorious sunset of a wonderful day.
Her labors surely follow with her."
"I was associated vith Mrs. Ladd In
missionary and church work ever since
I came to Portland In 18S6, and learned
to love and esteem her more than 1 dan
express." said Mrs. H.,C. Campbell, who
for several years was associated with
Ira. Ladd as corresponding secretary of
the North Pacific Board of Missions.
"As president of the North -Pacific Board,
her rulings, while firm, were always most
gracious, kind and reasonable. She- was
an example to us all in patience, charity
and punctuality. . Bhe was always the
first to give sympathetic response to
whatever call that came and her gen
erosity was proverbial. Hundreds of wo
men engaged in missionary work all over
the Pacific Northwest loved and revered
her: Her beautiful life has been one of
the greatest .Inspirations I have ever
Associates Adored Her. .
"We loved Mrs. Ladd next to our own
mothers," said Mrs. C. R. Templeton,
who, for many years, was associated
with Mrs. Ladd in missionary work. "We
adored her. The news of . her death
came to me with almost the shock that
would attend the death of a member of
my own family. Mrs. Ladd always
showed a thoroughly Christian spirit and
a beautiful disposition. She always was
active In church work and was a liberal
contributor to missions."
