She continued actively counseling, sharing the Gospel, cooking, and hosting folks in her home.

She is survived by her two sons, Richard Hunt (Margaret) and Josh Hunt (Missy); and two daughters, Marti Nelson (Carl) and Mary Vosburg Ritscher (Stu). She is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

This Obituary Has 7 Condolences

  1. What a wonderful Christian mother you had Richard and the rest of your siblings what a perfect example of Gods Love to all of you and others. Isn’t it fantastic knowing where she’s at now. May your heart be filled with all those great memories of time on earth with her ❤️

  2. We are so sorry to hear of your mother’s death. Your parents were so close that it is good they went to glory almost together. But we do offer our sympathy to all of you as to the hole they leave in your lives. Wayne and Jeanne Maness

  3. We loved your parents so much. We send our sympathy and ask the Father above to comfort you as you grieve. Your parents showed us how to take every opportunity to love on people and courageously share the truth of the Lord’s gospel.

  4. Dear Hunts family,

    We will greatly miss Walter and Aliene’s love, lessons, cooking, hospitality, Bible Studies, and Fellowship for the Internationals at their home. We will cherish their voices, kindly faces, and smiles forever.

    We are so grateful to Walter and Aliene for all they had taught and shared with so many of us and for so many years, especially for the earlier years when my sister and I studied in Lubbock, TX. We will always treasure the wonderful time, friendship, and love of Walter and Aliene.  May God bless you all.

    Love and prayer,

    Kesheng Yu, Kehua Anderson, and the family

  5. What a legacy! It’s so sad to loose our parents. You have loved them well. May the Lord comfort your hurting hearts and make His presence known to you in a very special way.

  6. We treasure our memories of Walter and Aliene during our time together with them on Mindanao during the 1980s. Aliene at one meeting at My Carmel gave our son Micah a peso coin for his new jeans because as she said “Every little boy needs a jingle in his pocket” Prayers for the family as you grieve but with hope. Life well lived for Christ.

  7. Knowing the life your mom and dad lived, makes this easier to write. Tom and I are from Clovis NM. Your folks were instrumental in our leaving Clovis to attend Wayland Baptist College in the late 70s to honor his call to music ministry.
    We have fond memories of your parents and their love for Jesus. Praying you feel contentment even in loss. May each day bring you sweet memories.
