Louise Jackson Hunt, 93, passed away on Friday, Dec. 2, 2011, in Snowflake. Funeral services were held Dec. 7 at the Snowflake Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The concluding service and internment followed at the R.V. “Mike” Ramsay Memorial Cemetery in Snowflake.

She was born on Nov. 15, 1918, in Fountain Green, Utah, to Henry and Amanda Rozilla Jackson. Shortly after her birth her family moved to Provo, Utah, as her parents felt that education was very important. Louise was the fifth of seven children, none of whom survive her. After Louise graduated from Brigham Young University, she taught high school in Panguich and Milford, Utah.

During World War II Louise moved to San Diego, Calif. There she met Max Ray Hunt at a church function. As soon as Max was discharged from the Navy they went to Joseph City to meet Max’s family, then on to Provo to meet Louise’s family and to Salt Lake City, Utah, to be married in the Salt Lake Temple. She taught school in Show Low for 23 years.

Max and Louise were blessed with four children, all of whom survive her: Catherine and David Ellis of Oracle, Diane and Lloyd Kriter of Snowflake, James and Candy Hunt of Mesa, and Laurel and Kevin Pederson of Bountiful, Utah. Louise is also survived by 19 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Max Ray Hunt, and one grandson.

Owens Livingston Mortuary of Snowflake was in charge of the arrangements.
