William Chrysler

William Chrysler passed away at his late residence in Windham Centre on Tuesday 20 Oct 1953, in his 90th year. A son of the late Michael Chrysler and Rebecca Dent, he was born at Cayuga on 7 Mar 1864. He received his education at Boston public school and moved to Windham Centre where he had resided for 65 years.

A millwright by trade, Mr. Chrysler operated a shingle, heading and lumber mill for a number of years before taking up truck gardening, from which he retired at the age of 80. He was a member of the Windham Centre United Church and has served on the Board of Stewards. It was principally through Mr. Chrysler's that sidewalks were constructed in Windham Centre several years ago. He was a staunch Conser-vative, and although an invalid, insisted on voting in the recent Federal election.

His wife, the former Alice Croft, having predeceased him 35 years ago, he is surviv-ed by one son, Austin Chrysler of Rainey River; two daughters, Sarah, Mrs. Henry Abraham of Stratford, and Miss Alice Chrysler at home; six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Two sons, Charles and Francis predeceased him.

Mr. Chrysler is resting at Mott Brothers' Funeral Home, Waterford, where service will be held on Friday afternoon, 23 Oct 1953, at 2.30 o'clock, with interment in Windham Centre Cemetery.
