At the age of 101, after having lived a beautiful, long life, Ruth Ellen Hunter (Evans) passed away peacefully on the morning of January 3rd, 2023.

She was predeceased by her husband Jack Hunter in 2005 and daughter Nancy Harms (Brian) in 2001.
Ruth was born in 1921 in Louisville, Kentucky where she was raised with her 4 brothers and sisters. She was married to Jack in 1944 and in 1954 they moved with their 2 kids to Abbotsford to run the family farm. They raised their children, joined the local Lutheran church, and had many friends and family to spend their time with.
In 1968 the farm was sold and they moved into town. In their retirement they enjoyed many years square dancing, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
In her later years Ruth remained dedicated to her faith and loved her church family. She enjoyed visiting over coffee or lunch with her many friends. She will always be remembered for her devotion to faith and family, her strength, her love for others, and the difference she made in our family and her community.
A service will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church (Abbotsford) on February 25th at 2:00.
