One of Wilberforce's best known and respected citizens, Mr. Charles Greentree, passed away at the District Hospital, Windsor, on June 13 at the age of 85 years. He had been a farmer at Wilberforce all his adult life, and was noted as one of the 1st breeders of Clydesdale horses, of which he was a Show judge in his later years in many districts.
For his work with the Hawkesbury Agricultural Association he was rewarded with a life Vice-presidency, and was presented by the Association with a medal at the close of a 30 year period of service in that capacity.
His wife predeceased him about six years ago, since when he had been in failing health. He was predeceased also by one son, Reg.
Surviving him are his daughters Ivy (Mrs. Martin, Wilberforce), Doll (Mrs. Nolan, Rose Bay) and Olga (Wilberforce). and also his son Frank (Wilberforce), to all of whom, and to other relatives, their host of district friends extend sincere condolences in their bereavement.
The funeral service in St. John's Church of England, Wilberforce, on June 14 was conducted by Rev. A.A. Mutton (who died suddenly the next day), and burial took place in the Church of England cemetery at Wilberforce." (Right, Row 02, Plot 01).
