Howard Nelson Hunsaker, 80, a member of a pioneer Marion County family, died Monday at his 2470 Trade St. SE residence, following a long illness.
A native of Scio, he had lived in the Mid-Willamette Valley all his life. His great-grandfather Joseph Hunsaker crossed the plains in a covered wagon and settled on a donation land claim near Turner. Howard Hunsaker had farmed a remaining portion of the land claim until he became ill last summer.

He was a member of the Chemeketa Odd Fellows Lodge No. 1, Salem, and was on the lodge’s board of trustees. He and his wife Anna M. Hunsaker had celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1961.
