Patricia Bennett Hunt ’50

September 20, 2014, in Paradise, California.

Patricia was valedictorian of her high school class in Hood River and followed her brother, Edward Bennett ’43, to Reed. Majoring in biology, she wrote her thesis, “A Study of Mitotic Rhythm in Salamanders with Special Reference to the Effect of Methylcholanthrene,” with Prof. Ralph Macy [1942–55] advising.

She married Angus Hunt ’50, and after graduating they moved to Alamo, California, where they lived for 50 years, raising three children.

A devoted mother and homemaker, Patricia worked as the receptionist at the Alamo Medical Group when her children were older. In her later years, she enjoyed traveling and summers at their Montana cabin. She is survived by her children, Marla Peters, Alan Hunt, and Sarah Dimon.
