They enjoyed over 50 years of marriage, had four lovely daughters and raised over 20 children in their extended family. Family was important to Eldora; she rarely missed a Hunt family reunion. Eldora loved tending to her flowers, especially Hydrangeas. She was the queen of giving and collecting Hallmark cards.
