Nancy Louise Hunt, 89, peacefully passed away on September 16, 2013 after a brief illness. Nancy was born in Tacoma, WA on November 18, 1923 to parents Alfred and Frances Nelson. She graduated from Lincoln High School in Tacoma and attended Washington State College (WSU) where she majored in Police Science. Nancy was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She married her college sweetheart, Owen Hunt, in 1944 and raised their three children while living in Seattle, WA, Ketchikan, AK and Camano Island, WA. While living in Ketchikan, AK during the 1950's and 60's Nancy's strong work ethic and keen mind awarded her the positions of Deputy District Magistrate and Chief Probation Officer for the state of Alaska. She was actively involved in her community and a member of PEO. Nancy and her husband lived in their retirement home on Camano Island for thirty-five years. Her home was a welcome place for family, friends and neighbors. She enjoyed the active beach life, golf, gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, Mariners Baseball, Cougar Basketball and visits from "the kids". Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, Owen, in 2008. She is survived by her children: Gail (Craig) Thompson of Camano Island, Tom (Annie) Hunt of Seattle, WA and Tim (Darla) Hunt of St. George, UT. She is also survived by eight grandchildren: Amy Thompson (Cal) Finnesand, Emily Thompson DeDea, Daniel (Allison) Thompson, Sarah Hunt, Tyler Hunt, Chelsea Hunt (Tom) Lanahan, Zackary O'Connor and Julie Pinson. Her great-grandchildren brought much laughter to her life: Zoe Jones, Zella Jones and Prudence Finnesand. Additionally, Nancy is survived by nieces and nephews; her sister-in-law, Vada Austin, and lifelong friend, Bonny Jean Benadom. The family will host a celebration of Nancy's life sometime in Fall.
