The wife of a former Oro Valley Town Council member has died.

Pamela Dawn Kunisch, wife of Al Kunisch, died March 16 at a Scottsdale hospital.

She had suffered with pancreatic cancer for more than a year. In recent months she was undergoing treatment in the Phoenix area.

Al Kunisch resigned his position on the council in February to spend more time with Pamela during her treatment. The couple also bought a house in Scottsdale to avoid the drives to and from Oro Valley during Pamela's frequent treatments.

Al told The Explorer that he has since sold his Oro Valley home and intends to remain in the new house in Scottsdale. The couple has a son who lives in Prescott and another in the Chicago area, where the couple is from.

The Kunisches were married in 1964. Pamela was 67 years old.

A memorial for Pamela is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, March 26, at the Vista de la Montana United Methodist Church in Catalina. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) Foundation (www.helptgen.org) or to the Humane Society of the United States (www.humanesociety.org).

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
