This article taken from the Greenwood Gleaner of 6/23/1904:

Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in his wisdom, to call from our number our esteemed sister Minnie B. Clute, therefore,
Be it resolved, by Greenwood Chapter No. 137, Order of the Eastern Star, that in the death of sister Clute we mourn the loss of a devoted worker, who inspired hope and patience in all of her associates and beautifully exemplified the noble teachings of our order. While we cannot understand why our Loving Father deemed it best to call her from us, yet we humbly bow to his will, knowing full well that the Just One doeth all things well and according to his supreme wisdom. That we hereby express to the bereaved parents and husband of our lamented sister our heartfelt sympathy. And that in token of our sorrow the charter be draped in mourning for the usual period of thirty days that these resolutions be spread on the records of this chapter, and published in the Greenwood Gleaner, and that an engrossed copy of same be delivered to the family of deceased.
