Isabelle Juanita (née Jackson) Hunter was born to Alexander Jackson and Luzetta Mae (Fields) Jackson in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania on February 16, 1927.
She graduated from Chambersburg Area Senior High School in 1944 and provided support to the war effort.
Living in Boston, Mrs. Hunter worked at Council of Elders in Food Service. After retirement, she began a vocation of volunteerism that spanned nearly 30 years. She served at The Salvation Army, St. Francis, the Cambridge Senior Center and the United South End Settlements (Harriet Tubman House) and throughout the community at large.
Through her volunteer works, Mrs. Hunter gained many friends, and was said to be well-liked by everyone who had the pleasure to meet her.
At Susan Bailis Assisted Living, where she was a resident, she loved to play the piano and sing, and engaged in all the activities the living community had to offer.
Mrs. Hunter was a member of the Platnum Singers group. She also loved watching movies, attending exercise classes and getting her hair and nails done. And we’ll never forget all her lovely array of sunglasses and penchant for fancy attire.
Mrs. Hunter was preceded in death by her husband George Hunter and daughter Lillian. She leaves behind a loving daughter, Juanita Isabelle (Hunter) Pless and her husband Wilbert, grandsons Richard Baderinwa and Wilbert Pless, a great granddaughter Maya Baderinwa, a dear and trusted friend Heidy, as well as a host of other cherished family and friends.
