Jean Brownley Hunt
Jean Brownley Hunt, 98, of Wilton, NC, died Sunday October 25, 2020. She is at peace with God.
She was born September 11, 1922 in Baltimore, Maryland. She trained as a nurse at Johns Hopkins University. While pursuing her nursing career she met Daniel Hunt in 1950 and the two were married in 1951. Before Dan’s passing in January of 2020 they enjoyed 68 years together going on to have 5 children, Andy (Patty), Laurie (John), Chris (deceased), Brett (Eileen), and Tim (Sue), 16 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren.
Jean was an accomplished seamstress, quilter, and all around homemaker. She was always ready to add a couple of guests at her dinner table. Her home was a welcoming and inviting place for all who ventured in. Together Dan and Jean purchased a vacation home on Brier Island, Nova Scotia and enjoyed many wonderful summers there.
After Dan’s retirement, they purchased Dan’s grandfather’s farm in Wilton, North Carolina and built a home there where they were active members of Banks United Methodist Church. She sang in the choir and was active in the American Legion and the Lord Grandville Agricultural Heritage Association. She displayed her quilts at the Heritage Shows as well as demonstrating spinning and all manner of domestic skills of the traditional Carolina farm.
After Dan’s passing Jean became a blessing to her oldest son Andy by moving into his home at 5258 Blue Ash Road, Columbus, Ohio 43229. Four of Andy’s five kids live in the Columbus area and enjoyed having Grandma around at family gatherings and great grandkids enjoyed playing SkipBo and Rummikub with her. She will be sorely missed by family and friends.
