Nancy Lane Hunt, age 72, of Harrisburg, was received in our Lord’s arms on Thursday, October 15, 2020.
The family will receive friends from 11am to 1pm Tuesday, October 20, at Wilkinson Funeral Home. Please join them at 1pm as they gather in the chapel to celebrate her life. She will be laid to rest at Carolina Memorial Park in Harrisburg.
Nancy was born in Roanoke, Virginia in December 1947 to the late Martha Bright and William Hardy Lane, Sr. She attended West Mecklenburg High School, and was a data entry operator at Toledo Scale, and Belk Services. Nancy later moved to UNC Charlotte where she worked in the payroll department until she retired. Nancy led by example and instilled a strong work ethic and shared her love for playing games with all of her children.
Nancy was devoted to helping others and she was an active church member and volunteer who shared her love and light with everyone she met. She loved her church family and dedicated many hours and much love, supporting Parkwood Baptist Church and the Sunday services provided to Kannapolis Transitional Rehab Center. She also attended Harrisburg Baptist Church. She was a welcoming smile to everyone who joined the PinkPals Breast Cancer Support Group. She also served as a volunteer at Atrium Health Cabarrus.
Her life is a living example of this verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
Nancy loved spending time with her friends every week and they enjoyed trips to the mountains, beach, and all around town. She was organized and a planner and always picked out the best place for lunch after bible study, and of course she always had her game bag in the trunk, ready to liven up any gathering. She had a contagious smile that will definitely be missed by all who knew her.
Nancy is the loving and devoted wife of Elmer Hunt, and cherished mother of Jessica Lee (Tim); Michelle Hildreth and Jim Driggers (Bre); adored Nana to grandchildren, Josef Hildreth (Kelly) and Jonathan Hildreth; great grandchildren, William Dean and Adalyn Grace Hildreth; step-mother to Paul Hunt (Sandy); grandmother to Heather Hunt Almond (Jeremy); Jake Hunt (Channing); Ally Hunt Hutchens (Kyle) and Andy Hunt, and great grandmother to their little ones. She is also survived by her dear brother, William (Bill) H. Lane Jr. (Judy), and her sister, Bettie Ann Turner and many nieces and nephews.
