Sharon Elaine Hunt, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away February 22, 2023, at the age of 75 in her home in Midvale UT, after her brief battle with Leukemia. She was surrounded by her family and passed peacefully.
Sharon was born to Elmer L. Anderson and Bessie Ruth Saunders, May 6, 1947, in Ogden Utah. She was the youngest of three, with an older sister and brother.
On April 4, 1980, Sharon married her best friend Jacy LaRay Hunt in their home in Bountiful, Utah. Jacy and Sharon were sealed for time and eternity in the Salt Lake City Temple on April 5, 1990. When their son, Scott returned home from his mission, both Scott and Tamra were sealed to their parents for eternity on September 21, 1990. Jacy and Sharon were deeply devoted to each other. Their marriage of 41 years was filled with love and a once in a lifetime friendship.
Sharon was always there for her kids and grandkids. She loved spending time with her family, especially if she could go boating or swimming. She loved playing in the water, “but don’t get her hair wet.” When her hair did get wet, she was like a kid again splashing and playing with the grandkids. She was a wonderful Mother and Grandmother who loved her kids and grandkids deeply and was always willing to listen to and spend time with.

She is survived by her son, Scott Clinton (Teresa) Hunt, daughter Tamra Hunt, granddaughter Kinley Elizabeth (Carlos) Marton, grandson Jacy Hunt, granddaughter Katlynn Hunt, and great grandson Mateo Oliver Marton.
A special thanks to Sharon’s loving daughter, Tamra, for the constant care of her mother for the past few years, especially the last year. Also, a special thanks to all her nurses and doctors.

Sharon, Beautiful soul. She helped me through the death of my husband. She listened, she understood and she guided me because she had just gone through the death of her beloved Jacy. I met Sharon at my work many years ago, she was always kind and caring. We have remained friends and talked our way through many difficult situations.
I'd like to send a special thanks to her Daughter, Tamra, who always came with her Mom and always helped her Mom. Thanks Tamra, for letting me know about Sharon's passing and thank you for listening to me while I cried over the news of your Mother. You'll never know just how grateful I am for that.
Now Sharon is with Jacy. That in and of itself, is a beautiful blessing. These past 2 years without him were so difficult for her. I love you Sharon and I am grateful to know that we have another strong, protective Guardian Angel.
A beautiful lady and special friend that I will remember forever is my high school pal, Sharon. Me and my husband Harold continued in that friendship and witnessed the happiness Sharon and her two children experienced when Jacy became part of their life. Somehow over the years we lost touch and I regret not being part of Sharon’s life to the end. I love you Sharon!
Sharon is a dear friend. We attended Highland High together and ended up living on the same neighborhood block in Bountiful. Our family moved to Indiana for 9 years and when moving back, Sharon looked me up on Facebook. She and Jacey were great friends and associates. Bob and I enjoyed our monthly lunch dates at Market Street Grill. Bob and I have missed Jacey and his great sense of humor and we will certainly will miss Sharon.
Scott and Tami may you be blessed with tender mercies at this time. I will miss her so much.
Scott and Tamra, I worked with your mom at Huntsman in Radiation Oncology, she was always so sweet and kind. My deepest condolences, I’m sure she and Jacy are together once again.
I must echo the comments made at the funeral that Sharon, and Jacy, made me feel like family from the first time I met them. Sharon was instantly interested in my life and wellness and that remained from 1985 till our recent dinner visit. She remembered everyone in our family and asked about their welfare. When we expressed a concern, she remembered and followed-up.
I will forever be grateful for Sharon and her friendship and mothering. Though I will miss her, I am so glad she is with Jacy again and know that she is happy. I would not be the same person without having had Sharon and the Hunt family in my life.
My condolences for the family. She is also with my sister in heaven. They knew each other in school. They both will be very missed.
Beautiful Service. Thank you Tami for contacting me. Thank you Larkin for providing ZOOM for those of us who could not attend the service.
Just a few " Take Aways" ;
* " We always think we have more time but we don't." Make time for those you love.
*"No woman is worth less than .5 Carat." She is worth so much more.
*"True families are related by spirit not by blood."
Sharon and Jacy have a timeless love for each other that I have always admired and respected very much. I am deeply honored to have known them both.
Sending deepest condolences.
I met this wonderful lady many years ago at the grocery store that she would shop at. She was one of my favorite customers. I always enjoyed having her come through my checkout line. It hurt my heart to hear of her passing. I will miss our conversations about life and so forth. Thank you for being one of my favs Sharon! You will be truly missed!
