Iona Hunt, 88, went into the arms of her loving Saviour, Jesus Christ on Tuesday, April 17, 2018. Iona was born in McAlpin, FL on February 25, 1930 and lived there until she graduated from Live Oak High School.
Iona was married to Reed Hunt just a few short months shy of 60 years before Reed passed. Before making their home in Titusville in 1956 Iona was a hairdresser. When Mike and Lynne attended elementary school she was a lunch lady at the school so she could be close by. She then spent time working at the Space Center and then the local hospital until an early retirement.
In later years Reed and Iona enjoyed traveling the country in their RV with their grandkids, gardening and church activities. As her health failed, she lived in Newnan, Ga with her daughter's family.
Iona will be remembered as a faithful friend, wonderful mother and Nana to grandchildren and great grandchildren and a great love for her Savior, Jesus Christ.
She is survived by son Michael of Homestead, FL, daughter Lynne (Ed) of Newnan, GA, grandchildren, Hope, Kerri, Russell and Alex; and, two great grandchildren, Ben and Faithe along with 2 sisters and many nieces and nephews.
Viewing will be from 1:00- 1:30 at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, McAlpin, FL Monday, April, 23 and a graveside service will be at 1:30.
