    • Mr John Andrew Lambert
      The Manning lost a well known resident on Saturday morning when Mr John Andrew Lambert of Taree passed away in the MRD Hospital. He had been suffering with heart trouble for about 18 months and entered hospital two months before his death. Deceased was a son of the late Mr and Mrs Geo Lambert and was born on Jones Island 67 years ago. He spent all his boyhood and early manhood on Jones Island, where he was engaged in farming. Following his marriage to Miss Rhoda Sheather, a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Benjamin Sheather, of Footscray, Victoria, he continued to reside on Jones Island for about ten years, and then he moved on to farm at Hannam Vale, where he remained for eight years. His next move was back to Jones Island and then to Taree Estate for a few years. About 20 years ago he made his home in Taree and resided here until his death. The late Mr Lambert was a man of considerable ability, and in addition to being a progressive farmer, he was actively associated with farmers organisations and church work. For many years he was a lay preacher in the Lower Manning and Taree Circuits of the Methodist Church, and he also evinced a keen interest in the Orange Lodge, in which he held several offices. He was one of the early members of the Agricultural Bureau movement in this district, being the Secretary of the Taree Estate Branch. He was also one of those who supported the movement instituted by district Bureau branches for the collective buying of fodder, fertilisers and other requirements, and which eventually resulted in the establishment of a co-operative store at Taree. Whilst a member of the Bureau the late Mr Lambert also took an active part in the staging of the Bureau exhibits at the Taree show. In recent years he acted as secretary for the Old Age Pensioners' Association at Taree. The late Mr Lambert was a man who lived a useful and active life, and one who never failed to carry out a duty which he imposed upon himself. He was temperate in all things, andduring his long sojourn in the district he won the goodwill and esteem of a large number of people. He is survived by his wife and the following children: W/O Clarence Lambert, Cpl Harvey Lambert, on fuul time service with the VDC; Messrs Lester and Benjamin Lambert (Taree), John Lambert (Sydney), Mesdames Robert Sanderson (Sydney), W Berry (Taree), and Ray Wilkins (Sydney). One son, Kevin, died at the age of five years. There are 25 grandchildren. Mr Lambert was the last member of his family. The brothers and sisters who predeceased him were Messrs George Lambert (Moorland), Harry (Sydney), William (Moorland), Thomas (Hannam Vale), Charles (who was drowned at the age of two years), Mesdames Martha Anderson (Harrington), Elizabeth Dykes (Drummoyne), George Redman (Dungog), Frank Redman (Harrington), Jack Laurie (Oxley Island), W McDonald (Moto) and Emily, who died at the age of 13 years. At 4:15pm on Sunday a service was conducted at the Taree Methodist Church after which the remains were laid to rest in the Dawson cemetery, the pallbearers being the five sons and eldest grandson, Keith Berry. Rev. W T Cross conducted the services at the church and graveside, and Mr W T Howard carried out the funeral arrangements
