Barbara Hult Obituary

Our mom, Barbara Hult, was called home to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ, on May 13, 2018, at her home in Moscow, Idaho. She was 89.

Barbara was born July 3, 1928, in Idaho Falls, to Dave and Zelda (Hyatt) Arave, of Taylor, Idaho. She grew up in Taylor. She met her husband, Kay T. Hult, while going to Shelley High School, and they were married June 10, 1947, in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. Once married, they lived for a few years in Middleton, Idaho, but returned to Shelley, where she worked as a secretary at Shelley Junior High School and helped run the family farm until 1971. The family moved to Boise, where she worked for her husband, Kay, as secretary of Idaho Teachers Mutual Insurance Company.

In 1983, they moved to Moscow, her current home, where she worked at Washington State University in the registrar's office. Upon her retirement, she worked with her husband and sons at Tater's Restaurant until it closed in 1999. She had a very strong bond with her family, was very caring and always cared about their welfare before her own. She loved doing things and going places with her family. Whomever she met, in a short while, would relay to the family how sweet she was.

Barbara was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Relief Society. She enjoyed crocheting, playing checkers with the visiting missionaries and her chocolate chip cookies were "legendary."

She is survived by her children, Leonard Hult, of Dallas, Texas; Clayton Hult, of Moscow; Linda Ulmer, of Moscow; and Craig (Mary) Hult of Spokane, Washington; and her grandchildren, Clint Ulmer, of Boise; Barbara Mendoza, of Nampa, Idaho; Kacey Hult, of Moscow; and Jack Hult, of Spokane. She is also survived by her six great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Kay T. Hult; her parents, Dave and Zelda Arave; her sister, Bernice Matthews; brothers-in-law, Dale Matthews and Glen Hult; and one great-granddaughter.

The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the LDS stake center on A Street in Moscow. Viewing will begin at 1 p.m. at the church. Another service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Nalder Funeral Home in Shelley with viewing one hour prior. Burial and grave dedication will be at Hillcrest Cemetery in Shelley.

The family suggests memorials be made to Kindred Hospice in Pullman, Washington. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.nalderfuneralhome.com.
