Death: Dec. 1, 1911

Mrs. Sophia Hunsaker of 2159 Cherry Street, wife of Captain John Oliver Hunsaker, engineer at the No. 6 Engine House, passed away at 12:40 o'clock last night at Blessing Hospital

Mrs. Hunsaker had been in poor health for the past year. Gradually her condition became worse until last week, when it became evident that an operation would have to he performed as the only means of saving her life. Sunday evening she was removed to Blessing Hospital and on Monday submitted to an operation tor gall stones. At first it seemed as if she would recover, but on Wednesday her family realized that the worst might be anticipated. She failed steadily until death ended her suffering this morning shortly after midnight.

Mrs. Hunsaker was born near Ewbanks on November 21, 1855, and was therefore aged 56 years and 10 days at the time of her death. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Berrian, pioneer residents of that section. Twenty-five years ago she came to Quincy and had made this city her home since, while Adams county had been her home all her life.

Mrs. Hunsaker was a good woman, highly esteemed by all who knew her and the news of her death is received with sincere regret by a large circle of friends.

Mrs. Hunsaker is survived by her husband and three children, two sons, Arthur Eugene Hunsaker, of Quincy: Ira Hunsaker of Boise, Idaho; and Mrs. George Drallmeier, wife of the well known druggist. Besides she leaves two grandsons, Roy Drallmeier and Eugene Hunsaker.
