Ruth Elizabeth Hunt, 96, died on April 9, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. She was born September 18, 1920 to the late Trubert and Ethel (Towne) Bancroft.

Ruth met Norval Hunt in Sheboygan where they worked together. Norval went to World War II and upon his return they married on June 19, 1946. They went on to raise three children, John, Paula, and James.

Ruth’s family remembers her as a “spitfire” - she was feisty and wasn’t afraid to be honest with anyone, although she was also very warm, good-natured, and funny. She loved holidays because she could spend them with her family; she also enjoyed watching Cubs baseball, playing cards, swimming at the “Y”, and playing with her cats.

Ruth is survived by her children: Paula Robison, John Hunt (fiancé Kathleen Steinbrecker), and James Hunt; granddaughter: Dr. Sara Robison; and brother: Harold (Marleen) Bancroft.

Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, Norval Hunt; parents: Trubert and Ethel (Towne) Bancroft; sisters: Helen (Athniel) Jaschob, Hazel “Peg” (Ellsworth) Schuette, and Bernice (Gerald) Jost; and brother: Roy (Marge) Bancroft.

Funeral services will be at 12:00 pm at the Wieting Family Funeral Home of Chilton (411 W Main St) on Saturday, April 15, 2017 with the Rev. Bob Laubenstein of First United Church of Christ in Green Bay officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home at 10:00 am until 11:45 am on Saturday, April 15, 2017.
It was such a joy to visit with Ruth and she will be greatly missed. Prayers to the family.
