Linda Hunter, 68, of South Windsor, beloved wife of Alan Hunter for 47 years, passed away Thursday, May 22, 2014, at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford.

Born in Mars Hill, Maine, Linda was the daughter of the late Bradford J. and Rilla M. Browning. Linda was a graduate of Stafford High School, Class of 1964. She was the owner of C.S. Specialists for the past 18 years. Before that, Linda was a supervisor of the Loan Servicing Group of Barclay's Real Estate Division. Prior to that, she was a real estate agent for Century 21 Holcombe. Linda loved the many cruises she went on with her husband, Alan, and close friends, Bob and Betty Blake, and greatly enjoyed spending time at the family cottage on Highland Lake, New Hampshire, for many years. She enjoyed eating shrimp cocktail and filet mignon at her favorite restaurants while drinking Cosmos or White Zinfandels. Linda also looked forward to her monthly dinner outings with "the group." She could often be persuaded by Alan and her sister, Annette, to visit Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods Casino. But most of all, Linda loved to spend time with her family, especially at the holidays, which were usually held at her house. She served up a delicious feast. Linda was a beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend who is forever remembered for her internal and external beauty as well as her optimism, generosity, and kind and giving nature. Linda always had a smile for everyone.

In addition to her loving husband Alan, Linda will be deeply missed by her son, Brian Hunter, and his wife, Lisa, of South Windsor; her brother, Robert Browning, and his wife, Arlene, of Springfield; two sisters, Diana Burnham, and her husband, Peter, of Manchester, and Annette Browning of South Windsor. "Mimi" Hunter also leaves behind two granddaughters, Katelyn and Nicole Hunter, whom she cherished and loved to spoil. Mimi was so proud of them. Linda is also survived by three nephews, Richie and his wife, Samantha, Ronnie and his fiancée, Kelly, and Robbie Browning and his daughter, Britiany; her mother-in-law, Lillian Hunter of South Windsor; two sisters-in-law, Sandra Weissman of Vernon and her family, and Diane Copes and her husband John of Manchester; a brother-in-law, Bob McLeod and his family of Florida; and several cousins and many dear friends. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her father-in-law, Leslie Hunter; and a sister-in-law, Frances McLeod.

Linda's family would like to express their gratitude to the nurses on the 4th and 8th floors of St. Francis Hospital for their loving care.
