Obituary from the Oregonian, 1/4/1970:

Ora B. Setters

A former mayor of Astoria, Ora Benjamin Setters, 94, of 68 NE 41st Ave., died in a local hospital on New Year's Day.

Mr. Setters was born July 4, 1876, in Milan, Mo. He was admitted to the bar and began to practice law in Spokane, Wash., in 1900. He moved to Astoria in 1916 and became mayor of that city in 1922, serving until 1926.

Mr. Setters moved to Portland in 1928. He was a Shriner and a 50-year member of Astoria Temple Lodge No. 7 AF&AM.

Funeral will be Monday, at 2 p.m. in the A.J. Rose and Son Chapel. Private vault entombment will be in Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery.

He is survived by his wife, Bess; two daughters, Elizabeth Dodson of Portland and Esther Hinkle of Seaside; three grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

The family suggests remembrances be donations to the Oregon Cancer Fund.
