Impressive Service for Prominent Citizen Held Yesterday

Several hundred sincere friends made through many years of kindly
association, gathered at the home of Dr. and Mrs. A. M. Bell Friday
afternoon to pay their last tribute to C. Sackett Chellborg, who after a
long period of illness, passed away suddenly Tuesday evening after
having spent an unusually active, busy and happy day.

Mr. Chellborg was born at Geneva, N.Y., and would have been
seventy-two years old May 29th. For the past thirty-five years he has
been a resident of Sea Cliff and during that time he has rendered almost
constant service as a public official and has played a prominent part in
the social, civic and religious life of the community.

Mr. Chellborg until very recently was president of the Official
Board of the Methodist Church; until last November he was an assessor of
the Town of Oyster Bay; for many years he was an enthusiastic member of
the fire department and was also one of the charter members of the Sea
Cliff Club which had its origin among a congenial group of men who later
incorporated and built the Sea Cliff bathing pavilion, now owned by the
village. His political interests were Republican and he was a member of
the National Republican Committee as well as active in the local party
affairs. The Sea Cliff Yacht Club, which for many years was the social
center of the vicinity, elected him secretary for twenty-five years. Mr
Chellborg also served as a village assessor and as postmaster of the
village for seven years. He was a Village Trustee for eight years
serving with the administration of the late Frank Sherwood. His
devotion to the affairs in which he was interested was constant and for
many years he attended the annual reunions of the early graduates of
Public School No. 40 in New York where his boyhood was spent.

In recognition of this public service the flag of the village has
been at half mast and in deference to Mrs. Chellborg, president of the
Library Board, the Stenson Memorial Library was closed yesterday. The
Legion Auxiliary, of which both Mrs. Chellborg and Mrs. Bell are
officers, postponed their meetings of the week.

Mr. Chellborg is survived by his widow, Mrs. Alice Chellborg; a
daughter, Mrs. A. M. Bell; a son, Frederick Chellborg; and three
sisters, the Misses Gunilla I., Julia R. S. and Ida Chellborg, all of
Sea Cliff.

The Rev. H. J. Hartman, pastor of the Methodist Church, officiated
at the services at the house and Glen Cove Lodge, F. & A. M., attended
in a body and conducted the commitment services at Hillside Cemetery.

The Village Board held a special meeting Thursday evening and
passed the following resolutions:

WHEREAS, In the Wise Providence of Almighty God, death has taken
from us our esteemed citizen, C. Sackett Chellborg, and

WHEREAS, For eight years as a member of the Board of Trustees of
the Village of Sea Cliff and as official in various other capacities he
served the Village faithfully, conscientiously and well, which service
renders it due to his memory that we should offer this tribute to our
late friend and associate; therefore be it

RESOLVED, That in his death we mourn the loss of C. Sackett
Chellborg and we deeply sympathize with his family in their great
bereavement; that the flag be placed at half mast for ten days on all
public buildings in the Village; that a copy of these resolutions be
transmitted to his family and also to the press.
