Mrs. C. W. Hunter Succumbs Sunday
Howard County and Fairdale Pioneer Passes Away; Rites Held at Fairdale Tuesday --

Rev. W. J. Primrose of St. Paul conducted funeral services for Mrs. C. W. Hunter, 84, at Fairdale church Tuesday afternoon. Burial was made in the Hamm cemetery beside her husband.

Mrs. Hunter, a pioneer of the Fairdale community in Howard county, had been an invalid during the past few years. She had been making her home with her daughter, Mrs. Fred Layher, since the death of her husband last October 1. Her death was attributed to her age and failing health.

On October 28, 1880 she was united in marriage to Charles W. Hunter in Ohio, and with her husband and family she came to Howard county in 1882. They located in the Fairdale community which has since been their home.

She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Fred Layher of St. Paul and Mrs. Clyde Johnson of Cotesfield and an adopted son, George Brown Hunter of St. Louis, Mo. One son, Harry, preceded her in death as did her husband on October 1, 1938.

Pallbearers were her six grandsons, Lloyd, Alvin and Max Layher and Raymond, Harold and Glen Johnson. The Messenger joins the Wolbach and Fairdale communities in extending heartfelt sympathy to those bereaved.
