Diane Hunt, 69, of Sisters, passed away January 16, 2019, after a brief battle with cancer.

She was born March 23, 1949 in Salem to Perry and Lois (Gordon) Jones. She graduated from Estacada High School in 1967. Diane married Douglas Hunt on September 21, 1968, while Doug was in the Air Force. They lived in Anchorage, Alaska, and then Sumter, South Carolina. After Doug's discharge in 1972, they moved to Albany, Oregon, where she opened her own dog grooming shop.

After moving to Sisters in 1996, she groomed dogs for the Sisters Veterinary Clinic until her retirement.

Diane was a hard-working, family-oriented, community-minded woman. She took care of wrestling teams, baseball teams, ran and won distance races, raised three boys, scored for innumerous sports teams, raised and showed dogs, and always found the time to cook things that were great. She may not have always been the loudest mom in the gym, but she was always there, supporting her sons and their teams. She was also an avid Oregon State and Seattle Seahawks fan.

Blessed to have shared in her life are her husband, Doug; sons Aric, Klamath Falls; Rory, and wife Cyndi, Eugene; and Edmund (Ted) of Sisters; her grandchildren, A.J. Hunt, Klamath Falls; Raelyn Valerie and Rory Lee Hunt, Eugene; her mother, Lois Jones, Sublimity; sister Marilyn (Dennis) Ebner, Mcminnville; and Annette (Kirk) Jolma, Silverton. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins who were very special to Diane.

Diane was loved by those whose lives she touched, and she will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her father, Perry Jones.

A small celebration of life is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday, January 26, at the home of Rory and Cyndi Hunt in Eugene.
