Our beloved Betty Jane Hunter Rolfe, formerly of Burgess, Ill., passed away on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at her home in Westchester, Calif.
There will be no formal service. The family will honor her memory with a private gathering at a later date and burial will be at the New Boston Cemetery.
Betty Jane was born on April 13, 1922, to William and Letah Hunter. She married Bob Rolfe and moved to Westchester, where their son, Marc Hunter, was born.
Betty loved to be with family and friends, to laugh and joke and banter. She was a voracious reader and crossword puzzle player. She wanted to see everything and do everything, and not miss out on any fun. Betty was a kind, generous, loving, beautiful soul and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Betty is survived by her son, Marc, Westchester; brothers, Dick (James Richard Hunter), LeClaire, Jack (John Hunter Esq.), Rock Island; nieces, Judy Hunter Myers, Lisa Hunter Ross, Wendy Hunter Magdlen; nephews, James, Steve and John Hunter; as well as several grandnieces; and grandnephews.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Bill (William); and grandson, John.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
