Hunt, Carrie (1 DEC 1866 - 9 JAN 1916)

Last Sunday morning the many friends of Mrs. Frank J. Hunt of Abbotsford received the sad intelligence that the estimable lady had passed away at 6:45 that morning. Mrs. Hunt has been in poor health for the past three years, but it was only in the last few days that the ailment, with which she was afflicted, reached the stage when it was impossible to tell when it might take a turn for the worse. The last day or so, with the exception of a bad spell, no and then, she seemed to be about the same, and when the final summons came, the passing out of this life was without a struggle.

Cad (Carrie) Tennant was born at Fitchburg, Dane County, Wis., Dec. 1, 1866, being 49 years, 1 month and 8 days of age at death. When quite young she came to this vicinity with her parents, who settled on a homestead in the town of Holeton (Marathon Co., Wis.). They were among the first settlers, having driven through from Grand Rapids with an ox team. For many years she lived with her parents at the farm home, which was a meeting place for young and old for miles around, and many a pleasant afternoon or evening comes to the memory of those who partook of their hospitality. Cad always did a great deal towards making these occasions enjoyable. In 1889 she came with the family to Abbotsford, which has been her home ever since. On July 29, 1898, she was united in marriage to Frank J. Hunt, who still survives her.

Mrs. Hunt will be greatly missed by the family and her numerous friends. She was very kind-hearted and was always concerned with the comfort of others. She was strictly a home girl, and thought a great deal of her family. Her father and mother, Richard C. and Mary Tennant, died in 1912, a few months apart, which was a loss she keenly felt.

She leaves, besides her sorrowing husband to mourn her loss, four brothers: E.E. Tennant, Seattle, Wash.; Frank W. Tennant, Glendive, Mont.; A.D. Tennant, Forsythe, Mont., and M.E. Tennant of this city.

The funeral was held at the home in Abbotsford at 1 o’clock Wednesday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the family lot in Colby Cemetery.
