Betty Jane “Jay” Hunt

Hunt, Betty Jay


Goodbyes are not forever.  Goodbyes are not the end.  They simply mean we’ll miss you, until we meet again.  Betty Jane “Jay” Hunt, 61, of Circleville, Ohio passed away on April 11, 2017 in Circleville.  She was born April 13, 1955 to Thomas and Julie Lutz.  Jay loved searching for treasures at thrift stores and yard sales, playing the video game Destiny, visiting the ocean, and being with those she loved.  She was an avid fan of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and True Blood.  Those who had the honor of being a part of Jay’s life know that she was a talented and amazing cook, a joy to be around and always made visitors feel welcome.  Jay touched our hearts and lives by being a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother, compassionate daughter, sweet sister, and caring friend.  After battling a brief illness, God called her beautiful soul to Heaven.  She is survived by her husband and soulmate of 41 years, Kenny; sons, Cory and Chad; daughters-in-law, Susan and Jennifer; five grandsons, Austin, Lane, CJ, Elliott and Aiden; and beloved dog, Chloe, all of Circleville.  In addition, she is survived by her mother, Julie Weaver; four sisters, Becky (Doug) Amerine, Connie Davis, Dorothy “Dot” Mogan and Sharon “Kay” Lagore; three brothers, Thomas “Tucker” Lutz, Herb Lutz and Mike (Melissa) Lutz; and several nieces and nephews.  The family is honoring Jay’s wishes in her passing by not conducting a funeral.  In lieu of flowers, the family would be honored with your attendance at the memorial benefit at Noon on June 3, 2017 at the Circleville VFW.  Arrangements entrusted to Ohio Cremation & Memorial Society.  Please visit to leave the family an online condolence.

    Chad, Jennifer and the rest of the Hunt Family,

    As we learned about Jay’s health although we only met her a time or so I couldn’t get her off of my mind. Many prayers for God’s will for her although we never want to let our loved ones go sometimes God’s will is different and He needs them. My heart is broken for the family.

    I know how quickly an illness can rob us of so much. I know how illness and loss can help put our priorities in order as we walk beside my loved one as they face a terminal illness. Even if the walk is short or long there will never be enough time. So hold on to those you love. Forgive a little easier, hug a little more often, say I love you so much it begins to feel like the Waltons saying goodnight. Because in the end each other is all that’s important and when a piece is missing we pull together the best we can to try and fill that gap so we get a little closer and remember the one we love.

    Our sincere and deepest sympathies for you all.

    My condolences to the Hunt family those precious in God eyes he keeps in his memory to awken to perfect health draw close to God and he will draw close to those broken hearted and crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18 James 4:8. Isaiah 33:24.

    Jay was an amazing lady, and a great deal of fun to be around. The way her and Kenny would bicker with one another always made me laugh. I’ll miss her and her cooking a great deal. Thank you for everything, Jay.
