Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Betty Jane Hunt (Brown, Winter) was borne on April 19, 1918 to El Nathan
Porter Hunt Jr. and Eva M. Yocey in Sioux City, Iowa. She was the first
child of eight, four boys and four girls. She grew up in a very nice older
home on the west side with enough room for the family, but only one
bathroom. After high school graduation from Central High, she attended the
Methodist Hospital Nurses’ Program and became a Registered Nurse. Not long
after she married Clarence E. Brown at Whitfield Methodist Church in Sioux
The newlyweds then moved to Michigan where they spent many years, living at
Orchard Lake, Michigan where they enjoyed life and raised a family on the
shore of Upperstraits Lake.  Betty did some private duty nursing and enjoyed
being a wonderful wife and mother. She belonged to Orchard Lake Community
Church where she sang in the choir and was Sunday School Superintendent.
After retiring to Leesburg, Florida and enjoying living there in a nice
retirement trailer village, Clarence died in 1977. Betty then married
Emerson Winter and after his death moved to Montrose, Colorado in 2000.
Betty resided at Spring Creek Chalet until her death on July 11, 2020. Her
time in Montrose, at the “Chalet”, was most enjoyable being in such a
wonderful and caring place, and having her family, Dennis Brown and wife,
Karla, of Ouray, and Sandra Brown and husband, Jeff, of Ridgway, able to
spend many enjoyable times with her.
Betty’s family includes grandchildren, Paul Russell of Telluride,
Kimberley Parker of Salida, David and Daniel Russell of Montrose, and great
granddaughter, Kamera Russell, daughter of David.
Surviving siblings include Shirley Milligan of St. Peter, Minnesota,
Robert Hunt, and Barbara Davis of Sioux City.
