Marion D. Hammack Is Called To His Rest

Marion D. Hammack died at the Enterprise hospital Wednesday, February 28, 1940. He had not been strong for several years and had been helpless since he was struck by an automobile May 6, 1938. Funeral services were held in the Christian church at Lostine, Friday, and were attended by many friends and relatives, including all county officials in tribute and Commissioner F. W. Hammack, brother to the deceased.

A quartet composed of Mrs. M. Crow, Mrs. Charles Page, Charles Bridwell and Melvin Crow sang three hymns, accompanied by Miss Martha Crow. Marion Hammack was born in Yamhill County and came to Union county with his parents as a child, and lived there until 1888 when he came to Wallowa County, making him one of earliest residents of the valley. He made his home at or near Lostine the remainder of his life.

He was a member of the Christian church from his early manhood and was affiliated with the I. O. O. F., and Knights of Pythias lodges.

Mr. Hammack never married. He was survived by three brothers. James Lafayette of Enterprise, Bert of Medford, and F. W. Hammack of Lostine; also by five sisters, Mrs. Josie King of Ashland, Mrs. Emma Gastin of Wallowa and Mrs. Effie Cook Mrs. Bert Caudle and Mrs. F. B Leonard of Lostine, and by several nieces and many friends.

Pall bearers were brother Oddfellows: D. H. Magil, Edgar Marvin, Prior Holmes, Harrison Holmes, Dee Magee and Chester Ogbourne.

Burial was in Summerville beside his parents and other members of the family.
