Mrs. Levinna M. Hunt
The funeral service for Mrs. Levinna M. Hunt
was held in the First Methodist Church yesterday morning at 11 o’clock,
conducted by Dr. H.E. Murkett, her pastor, and Dr. Alto A. Brown, president of
the University of Chattanooga. Mrs. Hunt was 93 years of age and the
oldest member of the First Methodist Church.
In the year 1855 she was united in marriage to Alexander Hunt, in Brie County, New York, and removed with him to Iowa, where they lived for fifteen years. They returned to New York for a brief time and then came to this city. Mrs. Hunt has resided on Lookout mountain for fifty years. during the last seven years she has been tenderly cared for in the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Nolan.
Mrs. Hunt lived a long, useful life, endearing herself to many people in the city. When yellow fever drove many of the inhabitants from the city she turned her home into a house of refuge and took as many as possible to reside with her. With her husband she established the Sunday school on the mountain, holding the sessions in her home.
Whenever a Christian duty was presented this noble woman responded and gave all her time and strength.
