HUNT, Elda

June 9, 1926 – Port Howe, NS
August 18, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Elda Virginia Hunt (nee MacKay), was born on June 9, 1926 in Port Howe, Nova Scotia.

Elda greatly enjoyed travelling to many parts of Canada, U.S.A and Europe in her later years with Wayne and Adele. Mom peacefully departed on her final trip on August 18, 2014. We will miss her infectious laughter, her mischievous smiles and hugging “Grammy” at family gatherings.

Mom will be lovingly remembered by sisters, brothers and their families from British Columbia, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia; daughter-in-law Adele of Calgary; as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. My beloved and courageous mom-in-law was predeceased by her parents Maude and John MacKay; brothers Horace and Calvin; her husband Stewart; and sons Laird and Wayne.

Many thanks to the staff at Intercare Southwood Care Centre as well as the staff at Southwood Hospice for their loving care.

Mom’s last wishes were for a small family memorial in Calgary. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 – 325 Manning Rd. N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 2P5 Telephone: (403) 205-3966, email donorservices@cancer.ab.ca. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Elda Hunt, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 403-256-9575.

  1. Irene Kelly's Family :

    Just wanted to leave a message for the family, she was such a sweet lady and we enjoyed a few laughs when she was in the Mayfair Care Centre. She looked out for Mom and shared meals with us at Table 11 and always let us know how Mom was doing that day. We visited her at the Rockyview and just wanted to pass on our condolences and share a few memories of her to the family.
