Obituary: Dora Louise Hunt
Dora Louise Hunt died peacefully on Nov. 9, 2014, at the Arizona Pioneers Home, where she had resided for almost a decade.
Dora was born Aug. 6, 1916, in Blue Rapids, Kansas, to Charles and Delores Davis. She graduated from Kansas City General Hospital School of Nursing in 1939, and was married to the love of her life, Paul.
In addition to raising and caring for her family, Dora was dedicated to the service of others as a registered nurse. She practiced and grew in the nursing profession for four decades and retired from the Yavapai Regional Medical Center as head of nursing services. For many years, Dora and Paul were active members of St. Paul's Anglican Church, where she oversaw the nursery, serviced in the guild and was principal pie baker for church functions and bake sales.
During more than 60 years of married life, Dora and Paul's favorite pastime was to travel and see the sights. Early in their life together, they took vacations whenever work and children's school schedules permitted. After becoming empty-nesters, they traveled to other countries. They later purchased a 5th wheel and traveled extensively throughout the United States, being on the road three through nine months of the year, until they were no longer physically able to do so.
Preceding her in death were her husband Paul, daughter Linda Dayle, and sister Phyllis. Dora is survived by her daughter Charlotte Evans of Prescott; two sons, Del of Arlington, Virginia, and Lance of Fort Collins, Colorado; 14 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great-grandchildren; and eight great-great-great-grandchildren.
A Requiem Mass and Eucharist will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Prescott, followed by interment at Mountain View Cemetery in Prescott.
The family suggests that memorial contributions be made in Dora's name to St. Paul's Memorial Fund or a charity of the donor's choice.
Services were entrusted to Heritage Memory Mortuary.
