    Frank E. Tappan, fifth child of Joel and Caroline Saunders Tappan, was born at Dodge Center, Minn., June 1, 1859, and died in Community Hospital, Battle Creek, Mich., December 24, 1939.
    In earlier life he was a school teacher; in later life an expert painter and interior decorator. On Christmas eve, 1882, he was married to Miss Flora A. Orcutt. For two years they managed a Children's Home in Cincinnati, Ohio, and later for several years a similar home in Battle Creek, where they have continued to abide. The Tappan home was distinctively a religious one. The Seventh Day Baptist Church, both in Minnesota and in Battle Creek, held a major place in their field of service. The church and community have met a loss in his death.
    Besides the bereaved widow, he leaves a son, Ivan O., two daughters, Ruby (Mrs. Elvan Clarke) and Miss Ruth, all of Battle Creek; four grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and a sister, Eva (Mrs. A. N. Langworthy) of Dodge Center.
    Farewell services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. Edward M. Holston, assisted by Rev. Henry N. Jordan, chaplain of the Battle Creek Sanitarium and interment was made in the family plot in Memorial Cemetery. E. M. H.
