SYLVESTRE -- Died in this city, May 11, at St. Joseph's hospital. Adelard J. Sylvestre. In his 71st year. Funeral Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock from the funeral home, 744 Merrimack street. Solemn high funeral mass at 9 o'clock at St. Jean Baptiste church. Burial in St. Joseph's cemetery under the direction of Joseph E. Tremblay funeral director.
This obituary comes from my within the depths of my Robillard folder which is located on my, ever increasing in size, hard drive. It was found some time ago and has just been sitting and waiting. However, I have yet to research exactly who Adelard's sister, Mrs. Joseph Robillard, from St-Felix-de-Valois is, I have a few hunches, but nothing I have actually researched. I will get to it someday as I have a life time to finish my research : )
