Campbell (b. Illinois), maiden name of mother Emma D’Lashmutt (b. Ohio), interment Embree cem; informant Mrs Eugene Hayter of Dallas.
Mrs. Margaret Vandalia Hayter, 77, widow of the late Dr. Mark Hayter of Dallas, died last Thursday at the Dallas hospital. She had entered the hospital in November suffering from heart trouble and remained there until her death. 
Funeral services, in charge of Henkle & Bollman, were held at the Presbyterian church with Rev. Ralph P. Waggoner, pastor of the Nelscott Chapel by the Sea, and Dr. Earl W. Benbow, local pastor, officiating. Burial was beside her husband in the Embree family cemetery east of Dallas. Concluding graveside services were in charge of Naomi chapter, Order of Eastern Star. 
Mrs. Hayter was born August 17, 1869, near the site of old Fort Sheridan in Yamhill county, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Campbell. The family later moved to near Salt Creek, building a home on the site which Jesse Applegate had settled in 1843. It was there that she and Dr. Hayter were married on November 30, 1887. They lived for about a year at Lebanon where Dr Hayter first established dental practice and then returned to Dallas where they remained for the balance of their lives. Both took an active part in community, church and fraternal affairs. Mrs. Hayter was elected worthy matron of Naomi chapter No 22, Order of Eastern Star, in 1907. In 1912 she was honored with election as grand worthy matron of Oregon. Her interest in lodge work continued and she was very helpful to her local chapter and others in the district during the years. She was also very active in the Presbyterian church. 
Dr. and Mrs. Hayter celebrated their golden wedding on November 30, 1937, with an open house for their friends. A few months later he passed away. Since that time Mrs. Hayter had spent most of her time at Nelscott but had always considered Dallas as her home. 
Mrs. Hayter is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Una LaChance, Portland; Mrs. Lena McDonald, The Dalles; Mrs. L.A. Propst, Milwaukie, and one brother, Thomas Edward Campbell, Dallas.
