Betty R. (Wright) Hunt

— Betty R. (Wright) Hunt, 86, of Lebanon, formerly of Kokomo, passed away Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, at Parkwood Health Care Center, Lebanon.

Betty loved music and started playing violin in high school, a talent she used throughout her life. Her greatest joy was raising her children, spending time with five grandchildren, worshiping and singing with friends. She was a dedicated Jehovah Witness for 46 years.

Also surviving are five grandchildren.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents; husband, William Hunt; sister, Isabelle Dodrill; brother, Dewey Wright; and stepmother, Frances Wright.

Betty’s family would like to give a special thank you to Parkwood Health Care Center and People First Hospice for the excellent care Betty received.

Visitation is 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness, 2317 Zartman Road, Kokomo. A memorial service for Betty will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Kingdom Hall.
