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.

    There is an ocean of comfort for us who remain, that In Christ we have the assurance of seeing you again at the appointed time. As my mom, you were always a “Good Sport”,. Whether in condescending to riding on the motorcycle to go pick up your Volkswagen….”Having Fun Mom?”… “Shut-up and Drive!”, Or relenting to one more request to repeat the line from that very old cartoon…….”mmmm, Boomerang!”….just to crack me up. I’m sorry for those who will never know you. Thank you for the freedom to learn at my own pace, even the very hard lessons and for being a living, breathing definition of Elegance, Hospitality, Grace and Forgiveness. I know that your Mom and Dad would have been extremely proud of their “little girl”.

    She was a fine lady along with her husband. I know she is at peace along side of her love Dan. She will be missed by so many. Prayers and love to her family.

    It was an inspiration to see Jean and Dan, to witness such love and warmth of spirit. A fine Christian lady, beloved by all who met and knew her.

    My husband and I can only hope to live and love as long as Jean and Dan did!!! We are so humbled to have know them <3

    I will certainly miss Dan and Jean both. They got all you could get out of life. They were part of a great generation. I hope at the end of my days, I can look back and feel proud, if I accomplished even half of what they did. Prayers and solace to their family.

    A salute to the team of Dan and Jean Hunt; always supporting our youth group, our older folks, projects of our church leaders, members in nursing homes, encouragement of Tom, the choir, MOSTLY love shown to all of us for 22 years.

    We remember Dan and Jean when they would go visit Bob and Judy. They would always blow the horn, wave, and holler at us when we were outside. Sometimes they would stop and chat with us for awhile. They were always friendly and outgoing. Dan and Jean were good Christian folks and will be missed.

    Jean and Dan dedicated their lives to God, their Church, Family and Friends. I sat in back of them at Church services and so enjoyed their conversation with each other and Dan keeping us all up to date with our church events they attended also. Dan had some good jokes or stories to tell at the luncheon gatherings but he would always check with Jean first if she thought his joke was ok to tell. Sometimes she would let him know if it was not okay.
    Such a classic couple who were
    loved by everyone.

    We will all miss Jean and her love for her fellow man.

  • Walter Steven Henderson Posted November 15, 2020 1:28 am

    Jean was an inspiration to us all by setting an example we all needed to follow. Her tireless work with the church’s youth was wonderful. She loved singing in the choir and ministering with the good folks at Granville House. Jean was a role model we could all strive to be like.

  • Darnelle Averre Posted November 16, 2020 2:16 pm

    Jean was a lady of few words but she was surely faithful with her words and deeds. Heaven is a brighter place as God has gained another true servant. Love you for your kindness and support for all these years!
