Jean Marie Hunt passed away July 24, 2015, surrounded by her family after a short battle with cancer. Jean called Blaine, Washington 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 the 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 Peace Health 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. Jean's giving spirit, her sense of humor and her 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.
