Solomon F. Greer, Well Known Citizen, Was in Usual Good Health,
While on his way down Queen Street on Saturday night about nine o'clock Solomon F. Greer suffered a heart attach and died while being carried into a store. He was 58 years old. Mr. Greer, who was born at New Maryland, was a son of the late John and Caroline Estabrooks Greer. He had lived in Fredericton for the past 30 years or more and was a carpenter by trade. He had been employed on a number of large contracts in Fredericton and last week was working at a house in the western part of the city. Saturday he was in his usual good health, ate his supper and afterwards went uptown to do some shopping. He had been in several of the stores and on his way home was seized with a heart attack. He made a movement as if to take hold of a building or something to steady him and fell on the sidewalk. Passersby picked him up and carried him into the store but he died before he was placed on the floor. Dr. J. G. Turner was called and pronounced him dead on arrival. Dr. Charles MacKay, the coroner, was called and said death was due to natural causes and his body was removed to the undertaking parlors.

* (There are no dates on either of the clippings. From an earlier clipping, about the death of Niall Burnett, the student minister who was groomsman in the Shaw-Cunningham wedding, and his death in 1941 - the obituary said he had been student minister in Hanwell in 1938 and 1939. The dates for two articles on the back of the clipping about the wedding are June 30, and July 1.)
