Obituary: Betty Lou Hunt


Dear Momma... We are not sure how we are going to move forward without you. We have had the gift of your life for 91 years.  No matter the circumstances surrounding the loss of your life, we know our lives will never be the same. 
Our Lizzy was the least visible child in your life, having lived away, but you were always in her heart. The hardest part is that her children, your grandchildren, never had the opportunity to have the love that was in your heart. We are so glad that ChaCha and Chica were able to bring you so much joy, and you them. 
We kids will always remember those crazy teenage years in Casper, cruising CY Ave., (the strip) in the old convertible, Willys Jeep, in our bathing suits … you were just one of us! 
You will be so missed by all who loved and knew you. Kindness doesn’t begin to cover the love you spread, not only to family but friends, co-workers and acquaintances. You were a friend to all. You were strong and compassionate about your beliefs and resolutions.   
We are glad that you were able to enjoy and travel throughout the U.S and Europe in your latter years. You created beautiful memories with loved ones and travel companions.   
Mom, do you remember when you and Dad tore down the D-4 ... every single last bolt? You cleaned every single piece of the D-4 with gasoline — which turned your hands to prunes —painted each part and put it back together. And it only took seven years. What a wild and wooly life you lived with Dad! Oh, those memories!!! 
You were so lucky to have found a second love ... along came your Jim. The two of you had so much fun and had such a wonderful relationship. Always hand in hand, playing grab ass. We were so happy that you had many travels and adventures together throughout your seven years. 
It took a while, but you are with your loved ones that have passed before you: our Dad, Charles (Buster) William Hunt, friend and companion, Jim Barger, parents, Wayland and MaryBell Shenefelt, and one grandchild, Holly Nichole Bartlett. 
Those of us who are left behind will surely miss that warm heart and contagious smile.
Children, Liz Bartlett, Boulder, Wyo., Kathy Masters, Boulder, Wyo., Chuck Hunt (Terry), Virginia, Sue Hanson (Donnie), Pinedale, Wyo., and Rosemary Mickey (Dwight) Boulder, Wyo., 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews, along with Jim’s children Terrie, Becky, Connie and their families. 
At Mom’s request, no services will be held. 
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Rendezvous Pointe or Happy Endings Animal Rescue.
