Hungate, Dorothy Nell Wilson - Hannibal  
Dorothy Nell Wilson Hungate departed this life Sunday (Nov. 16, 2014) at the age of 91 after an illness of several months. Dorothy was born Nov. 11, 1923, in Bowling Green, a daughter of Kirby and Lena Dunbar Wilson. She attended Eagle Point and Edgewood elementary schools and Bowling Green High School, graduating in 1941. She married her high school sweetheart, Bill Hungate, April 13, 1944, in Lebanon, Pa., where he was stationed in the Army. Her family attended the Bowling Green Presbyterian church where she was baptized. She showed an early aptitude for music and was blessed with a beautiful soprano voice. She graduated from University of Missouri in 1945 and was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. She and Bill resided in Cambridge, Mass., from 1946 to 1948 where she worked as program director for the YWCA and established the first integrated women's program. She taught school for many years in Troy, helping start the first kindergarten there. She was active in clubs including Carillon Music Club, Anna Day Federated Women's Club, Congressional Wives' Club, International Club, United Methodist Women and PEO. She participated in the Walk to Emmaus in Quincy, Ill. She enjoyed singing in choir and performed as a soloist for church, civic clubs and Democratic party events. Though not enthusiastic about Bill's entry into politics, she became an able and supportive political wife during Bill's 12 years in Congress, maintaining homes in both Troy and Alexandria, Va., during his time in Congress and participating in many political events. She was very faithful in her support to her husband, both during his time as a United States congressman and as well as his time as a United States federal district court judge. They returned to Missouri in 1976, living in Town and Country until Bill's death in 2007. She was a member of Salem Methodist Church in Ladue. In 2011, she moved to the Fountains in Ellisville. She was lovingly cared for at Brooking Park in Chesterfield from June of this year until her death. She enjoyed music, gardening, painting, playing bridge, following the Cardinals and cooking. Her apple pies were legendary. "Dottie" was a loving mother and grandmother...a Christian in the truest sense of the word -- kind, loving and charitable. She believed in justice and equality and was a lifelong Democrat. She made friends easily, and her friends included members of all ages, races and creeds. She was at peace during her final illness, saying "I've had a wonderful life. Sometimes death is a blessing." Hers was a life well-lived. She will be missed by her many friends and loved ones, but her greatest wish would be for us not to look back in sadness, but to remember her with joy and to live as she did....with love, strength, courage and kindness. She is survived by her son, David (April) of Bethpage, Tenn.; her daughter, Katie Wood (Branson) of Hannibal; her granddaughter, Allison Wood (Adam Starkweather) of Brooklyn, N.Y.; her grandson, Bennett Wood (Karen) of Austin, Texas; her grandson, Noah Hungate (Libby Tollefson) of Murfreesboro, Tenn.; her grandson, Matthew Hungate (Lisa) of Nashville, Tenn.; and her honorary grandson, Mark Dickman, of Las Vegas, Nev. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her parents, Kirby and Lena Dunbar Wilson; and her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Leonard Wathen and Maude Williams Hungate SERVICES: A private graveside service will be held.
