Turnbull, Edward (Ned) (1860–1923)

Quite a gloom was cast over Wilberforce district on Monday when it was learned that Mr. Edward Turnbull had passed away suddenly on the previous night. The cause of death was heart trouble. The deceased had not been in robust health for some time past, and a few months ago had a paralytic stroke. He was 62 years of age, a son of the late Ralph Turnbull, and a brother of Messrs. Ralph and William Turnbull, of Wilberforce. "Ned" Turnbull, as he was familiarly known to his friends, was a very popular man, and was greatly liked for his unassuming demeanor and goodness of heart. His wife died some years ago, and he was living with a son at Wilberforce. He leaves a grown-up family of four daughters and two sons, viz., Fred, (with whom the father lived at Wilberforce), Dulcie (Mrs. Tracey, of Sydney), Dorrie (Sydney), Norman (Queensland), Edna (of Sydney, and formerly a nurse at Windsor Hospital), Neta (Sydney), and Frank (who lives with Mr. C. Cross at Cattai). The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon, and it was one of the largest ever seen in Wilberforce, which shows the respect in which the deceased was held. Rev. G. P. Birk conducted the service and Mr. Chandler was undertaker.
