Debra Jean Hunt
Debra Jean Hunt, 68, of Danville, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019.
She was born June 4, 1951, in Bay Shore, N.Y., a daughter of the late Roger W. and Adeline B. (Cardeiro) Hunt.

Debra was a 1969 graduate of Rippowam High School in Stamford, Conn., and a 1974 graduate of Bloomsburg State Teacher's College with a bachelor's degree in education. While at Bloomsburg, she was actively involved with the Drama Department.

Debra was employed by the Central Columbia School District for more than 30 years, from where she retired in January 2007.

An avid love for children, Debra was devoted to teaching and was highly regarded by her students. She loved playing cards and word games. Debra loved going to the beach, being in the sun and near water. Her positive and enthusiastic spirit will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by one brother and sister-in-law, Dana R. and Kerry Hunt of Stamford, Conn.; one sister, Paula Jane Farrell of West Stockbridge, Mass.; two nephews, Sean R. Farrell and William R. Hunt, both of Stamford; and two nieces, Kelly A.Toscano of New Canaan, Conn., and Andrea C. Hunt of Stamford.

Services and burial will be private at the convenience of the family.

Because of her love of cats, memorial contributions may be made to Danville SPCA, 1467 Bloom Road, Danville, PA 17821.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Visneski Funeral Home, 42 W. Mahoning St., Danville.

Miss Hunt, you were one of my favorite teachers in Middle School. Your excitement and energy was parallel to none. You are the reason I enjoyed English and made appreciate how to write. I will pray for you that you may rest in peace and know that your small contribution to me as a student was always remembered and appreciated. Thank you for being my teacher.
