Jean Marie Hunt passed away on July 24, surrounded by her family, after a short battle with cancer. Jean called Blaine, WA her home for the last 46 years, but Alaska was her home away from home. Having spent time in Alaska in numerous cities and towns, she fell in love with majestic mountains and picturesque water, and loved fishing, clam digging and hunting. Canning was a specialty of hers, canning 100 jars of each item every season. After retiring from PeaceHealth Hospital, she immersed herself into her lifelong passion; antiques of glassware, silver and furniture. Jean had quite the collection of silver plated ware and glassware dating back to the 1800’s. One of her special loves of silver plate silverware was a specific pattern, “Rosemary,” dated 1906, over the years collecting a set for every granddaughter. Jean was the queen of the 4-letter word, SALE, and was always looking for the next great bargain. Her giving spirit, sense of humor, and loving heart will be missed by many. They will live on in her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and the many people she touched throughout her life. We know she is now running on the beach surrounded by mountains breathing in the fresh air with ease.
Jean’s children are, Cindy (Wade) Bailey, Bill Wade, Steve Wade, Kathy Hunt, Rebekah (Hunt) Johnston, 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Jean is LOVED and missed. Please share your thoughts and memories at www.molesfarewelltributes.com.
