OBITUARY:

Jean Hunt (aka Gina) was a resident of Woburn, Massachusetts since the age of 4. She was raised on South Main St by John and Lucy Demasi. She graduated Woburn High School, Class of 1953. After school Lucy introduced her to Carl Hunt of Revere, Massachusetts. The two were married and moved to East Boston. Jean had one child, Paul Hunt, who was the light of her life. She and Carl eventually moved back to Woburn and raised Paul on Carter St.

Jean began working in the food industry as a waitress and bartender at Howard Johnson’s. She worked until she was in her seventies and finished her career at Jimmy’s Restaurant in Arlington. Jean enjoyed watching Paul play hockey through college. She liked to go to her cottage in Francistown, NH and camp ground in Rochester, NH. Jean stood behind Veterans, Democrats, and anything relating to Woburn.

However, Jean’s most treasured thing was being around her family. She would often just go sit down Lucy’s kitchen and hang out for hours. She enjoyed going out to lunch with friends and frequented Frannie’s in Winchester. She loved to spoil her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was unselfish, loving, and devoted to family and friends. She was a social butterfly, enjoyed being around people and loved to laugh. Anyone who had the chance to meet her knows we lost one of the good ones. She will be sadly missed.

Jean is survived by her beloved son, Paul Hunt and his wife Michele of Salisbury; her granddaughter Sarah Hunt of Ohio; her grandson Ian Hunt and his wife Nicole and her two great grandchildren Elina and Logan Hunt of Woburn.

Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend calling hours on Wednesday, June 15th at the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn from 4-8 p.m.
