Hammack, Alice Irene Bohannan
The following data is extracted from Wallowa County, Oregon Obituaries.
Enterprise, Oregon

Mrs. Irene Hammack, who resided in Enterprise until two months ago, passed away at the home of her son, Lester, in Jameson, Oregon, on May 1st, at the age of 74 years. She was born at Huntsville, Ark.

Mrs. Hammack had been in poor health for several months and due to her physical disability, her son, Fred, went with her to Ontario where she might be near her other children and where she would receive medical care. It was soon learned that she was a victim of diabetes and she was removed to the hospital where an amputation on her foot was performed, and she was later brought to her son's home where she survived only a few days.

The funeral services were held in the Ontario Chapel Friday at 2 p.m., and internment was in that city.

She is survived by six sons: Ben Gaskill, of Echo, and Elmer Gaskill of Ontario; John Hammack, of Ontario; Lester and Fred Hammack of Jameson; and Lee Hammack, of Valsetz, near Salem; and by fourteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. All six sons and families were present at the funeral as well as a step-son, Jesse Hammack, and his family and son, William L., and daughter, Mrs. Anna Foster of Enterprise. Mrs. Laird was a niece.

She was married in Lostine 43 years ago to J. Linza Hammack and resided in that vicinity off and on for forty years. He preceded her in death two years, and after his death she and son, Fred, moved to Enterprise.

Mrs. Hammack was a member of the Christian Church at Lostine and will long be remembered for her kindness and charity to neighbors and friends. Her son, Fred, will remain with his brother, Lester, for a time where he has employment.

Used with permission from: Enterprise Chieftain, Enterprise, Oregon, Thursday, May 9, 1940.

Note; Gary Jaensch.
J. Linza Hammack would be John Lindsay Hammack, Linz was a nickname. Mrs. Alice Irene Bohanan was first married to James Ross Gaskill, they had three children, Benjamin Harrison, William and Elmer Ross Gaskill. Evidently William preceded her in death.
