Hannah Rebecca Hunt

d. August 30, 2010

our beautiful, loving warrior daughter, lost her fight with brain cancer on August 30th while surrounded by her family at home after a nearly three year battle with this tumor. Hannah was born on August 1, 1998, the youngest child with three older brothers. She lived her entire life on Bainbridge Island with her family and her beloved dogs and cats. With her sweet, kind, fun nature, and beautiful smile, Hannah loved her friends as much as she loved her family. Many girls regarded Hannah as their "best friend". Prior to her illness, Hannah was very active in dance, soccer, tennis and all things having to do with friends. While the last three years of her life were more limited due to intensive treatment, she continued to love movies, music, games, yoga and dance, and spending time with friends. Hannah also loved school and was an excellent student at Montessori Country School, Wilkes Elementary, and Sakai Intermediate School where she completed the 6th grade.As her cousin said, Hannah "fought harder and lived more fully than many people do in their entire lives." Another friend said, "Hannah absolutely loved life and knew how to make the best of things." Just as Hannah was an inspiration to so many, we are grateful to the support our family received throughout her illness. Hannah was a gift and a blessing to her family and to all who knew her, touching others with her hope, her courage and her love. Hannah's bright warrior spirit did not lose the battle, but rather helped teach others how to love and how to care for each other. We miss her dearly but will forever hold her in our hearts. Hannah is survived by her father, Bill Hunt, her mother Reba Ferguson, her brothers Andrew and Ryan Hunt, as well as Adam (and Alexis) Hunt of NYC. Her Aunt Linda Ferguson, cousins Caroline, Annie and Chris Ferguson of Bainbridge Island, and Uncle Claude Ferguson; Uncles Rick, Dave, and Stephen Hunt and families of California; and Great Aunt Ruth and Uncle Dewey Mann and families in WV. Hannah was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Vincent and Ann Hunt of Lodi, CA and maternal grandparents, Jim and Reba Ferguson of Cincinnati, OH.A celebration of Hannah's life will take place on September 12, 2010 at 6 pm at Grace Church on Bainbridge Island.
