Patsy R. (Pat) Hunt, born April 29, 1927, died September 6, 2006 as the result of a long illness. Services will be held at the Barnes Funeral Home in Midwest City on Monday September 11, 2006 at 2:00 pm. Interment is at Arlington Cemetery. Pat was a long time resident of Midwest City, having established the family home here in 1953 with her husband Charles and three children, Brady, Doug and Ellen. She was proud of her many accomplishments, having worked tirelessly for the development of the Midwest City community in many of its early institutions, both behind the scenes and in leadership capacity. She was one of Midwest City's first planning commission members, and was active in a number of political campaigns, boards, committees and groups for the development of our schools, government and community. Pat, a natural leader, loved her work in PTA which spanned a quarter century, holding many offices in the Mid-Del organization, as well as having had the honor of representing Oklahoma nationally as the state-wide PTA president in 1973-75. She cherished the scores of friendships she developed through PTA over the years. Pat was distinguished in all her endeavors. After her husband Charles' death in 1980, she became a realtor. She and long-time friend, Jean Johnson, established Tinker Country Realtors, and over the next twenty years, she served as its President and became its sole owner. Pat was honored to be elected President of the Mid-Del Board of Realtors in 1991 and awarded the Realtor of the Year in 1999. She was one of the first women in Oklahoma to earn the prestigious credential of Certified Residential Specialist. She was a mentor to many and a friend to all in the real estate profession. Pat enjoyed service to her fellow man as a realtor and as a human being. She treated all with equal dignity and worked tirelessly to insure that a person could obtain their first home no matter their status in life. She was particularly proud of those she helped into their first homes. Pat loved the arts. She was instrumental in creating the Allied Arts Association of Midwest City. Over the last dozen years, Pat was particularly fond of volunteering for the annual Guthrie Jazz Banjo Festival and was its Volunteer of the Year in 2000. She was loved by banjoists across the nation. She was also instrumental in establishing the National Four-String Banjo Hall of Fame Museum in Guthrie where she concentrated much of her volunteer work over her last years. Pat was preceded in death by her parents Roscoe T. Healy and Harriet V. Healy, as well as her husband, Charles R. Hunt, March 1, 1980. She is survived by: two sons, Brady R. and wife Kay of Midwest City, John Douglas and wife Patti of Oklahoma City, and a daughter, Ellen P. Hunt of Denver, Colorado; four grandchildren, Christopher, Kathryn, Charles and Daniel; and a brother John S. Healy of Kermit, Texas. She will be missed by her community, those whose lives she touched with her unselfish service, and, most of all, by the family she loved and who loved her.
