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.
