May 21, 1934 - July 26, 2020
ADRIAN—Nancy Louise Hunt, 86, of Adrian, passed away peacefully Sunday evening, July 26, 2020, at Charlotte Stephenson Manor after a long illness. Nancy was born & raised in Sylvan Lake, MI, the only child of Donald Johnston and Louise (Longpre) Johnston. She earned her BS in Education from the University of Michigan in 1956, where she met her future husband, Phillip J. Hunt. They moved to Adrian in 1965, where they raised their seven children. In 1974 Nancy went to work at Family Counseling & Children’s Services of Lenawee County, and subsequently earned her Masters in Social Work from Case Western University to become one of the agency’s Licensed Therapists. She dedicated 36 years to the community through her tireless work. It was there that she met two of her most cherished, lifelong friends, Sara Forthun and Julie Olin. Above all else, Nancy was a devoted mother. Her love, patience, wisdom and understanding knew no bounds. She was a true matriarch, committed to ensuring her children will always be there for each other. In her 70’s she fulfilled her wish to take a special trip with each of her children individually. They will miss everything about her – especially her laugh. Nancy was very active in the community. She was a long-term member of Zonta, Civitan, and KKE. Her favorite activities were playing Bridge with two Bridge Clubs and relishing books with two book clubs for many decades. All the members of these groups were cherished, lifelong friends. Nancy is survived by all seven of her children, each of whom was blessed to see her in her final days: David Hunt, Catherine Wright, Laura (Jeffrey) Ver Beek, Jane (Steven) Bloom, Steven Hunt, Elaine Hunt, and Kurt Hunt. Also surviving are her grandchildren, David Wright, Rebecca (Niklaus) Otto, Andrew Wright, and Louise Bloom; step-grandchildren, Deja Weiner, Adam Bloom, and Morrison Bloom; great-granddaughter, Adeline Otto; cousin (“daughter”), Barbara (Ron) Meloche; first cousin, Alana Pioter; and many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; former husband, Phillip J. Hunt; daughter-in-law, Barbara Hunt; and son-in-law, Michael Wright. Nancy’s family extends special thanks to the entire staff of Charlotte Stephenson Manor and Hospice of Lenawee for their excellent care and kindness over the past months. *** Please join us in celebration and prayer in honor of Nancy Louise Hunt, dearest mother, relative and friend to so many. A memorial service for Nancy will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021, beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the Heritage Room at Wagley Funeral Home, Adrian. A light luncheon will be provided. Visitation follows service until 5:00 p.m. Nancy passed away after a long illness in July 2020 during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, unable to visit family and friends for many months. As always, she met the moment with courage and dignity. In her spirit of grace, commemoration of Nancy’s life extends to all those who suffered the loss of a loved one in these unique times. As Nancy delighted in sharing favorite books, please bring a book to exchange.
