VERMONT - Thelma Hunt, 74 of Fayston, VT, formally of Rumford, RI passed away Thursday, October 28 at Fletcher Allen Hospital with her daughter Brenda and son-in-law Todd by her side.
Thelma was born in Westport, MA on Aug. 2, 1936, the daughter of the late Elmyra Carr and the late Ralph Macomber and wife of the late Robert Hunt. She worked tirelessly her whole life to support her family and to assist with others as a seamstress at Health-Tex Clothing, assembler at Automated Chain, server at Dunkin Donuts, and then after retiring, a Senior Companion at Home Instead and a Foster Grandparent in the Rhode Island elementary school system.
Her strength and determination shined on after her stroke in 2006; she was an inspiration. Thelma touched the lives of many with her smile, care and concern for others. She loved the ocean, feeling her happiest when there.
Thelma leaves behind her daughter, Brenda, son-in-law, Todd, brother Ralph, sister-in-law Marion, several nieces and nephews, along with many friends whose heart she touched.
A memorial service will be held at a future date in Rhode Island. In remembrance of Thelma, donations may be made to Save the Manatee or Paws for Friendship, Inc.
