HUNT, Dorothy Elsie

November 12, 1919 – March 10, 2014

It saddens us to announce the loss of our mom, Dorothy Hunt. Mom was born November 12, 1919 in Ottawa, Ontario and adopted by Richard and Hester Moulds who loved and cared for her as if she was their own child.
Mom married the love of her life, Ross Tabor Hunt, on May 2, 1942. Together they had 6 boys: Larry, Carl, Brian, Bruce, David and Chris; and 1 daughter; Deborah (Billings).
Tragedy struck the family when her husband and best friend drowned in a boating accident up at their cottage after only 13 short but wonderful years.
Dorothy was widowed at the age of 36 to raise 7 children on her own, ages ranging from 4 months to 12 years old.
Mom was courageous, loyal, positive, caring and had a great sense of humour and a hospitable, generous attitude.
Life was not always easy but she never complained.
Her door was always open and hand never short in helping ones. The coffee was always on with a fresh baked goodie. Mom loved knitting, baking, reading, drawing, canoeing, taking pictures, and swam better than most fish.
Mom loved life and appreciated Jehovah’s wonderful creation to the extent of being baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 25, 1959. She loved studying the Bible and sharing its good news with others. Her favourite expression was “better days ahead” because she was confident in the promise of the restoration of the earth back to a paradise and her hope was to be resurrected to earth to see all her loved ones again. Rev. 21:3, 4 John 5:28, 29
Mom had the gift of many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren. To Evie, and Daisy she was the best “Gigi” ever.
We will miss mom but we know we will see her again.

Mom’s memorial service will be held at the Ranchlands Kingdom Hall, 1705 Ranchlands Way,
Calgary, Alberta, on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 2 pm, officiated by James Zannet.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Dorothy’s memory may be made to either; The Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of Canada, P.O. Box 4100, Georgetown Ontario L7G 4Y4 or The Agape Hospice, 1302 – 8th Avenue NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 1B8

    To Deb and the Hunt Family.
    I was filled with sadness when I got the news of Dorothy’s passing.I know she was tired and was ready to go to sleep. The couple of times when I sat with her at the Hospital we had some good chuckles. She would eat a little of her food and then try to get me to eat the rest.I always reflect back on when she was able to bake and I would supply her with Rhubarb for her delicious Muffins.I will miss the drop in visits with her and miss that Beautiful smile.Rest in Peace Beautiful Lady.

    If you met Dorothy and were not right away impressed by her beautiful smile and positive personality then you obviously did not really meet her. When we think of her we can only remember peace and love and good baking!
    Knowing her story we realize that experiences in her life left her not bitter but gave her an understanding and compassion most people don’t have.
    Any stressed out person she visited with was left with the feeling that things could in fact get better and be ok.
    If you need to feel uplifted, remember Dorothy Hunt, all her kindness and especially her laugh.
    Our deepest sympathy to the family, and especially to Deb, her beautiful daughter and rock solid caretaker during the final part of her days.
    Lori and Calvin xoxo
