Kaye Ann Hunter, 67, passed on December 1, 2018. She was born on April 27, 1951 to Walter Leroy Willes and Una Mary Jenks.

Kaye’s mother was a seamstress and cook and her father was a carpenter who built each house they lived in. So, they built and lived in many houses in the Alameda area of Pocatello. She attended Green Acres Elementary, Alameda Jr. High and Highland High School.

After her lengthy pursuit, Kaye married her high school sweetheart, Todd G. Hunter on August 18, 1970 in the Idaho Falls, Idaho Temple.

Kaye worked at home as a day care provider for over a decade. She then worked for the Teen Parent program at the Roosevelt Center. She also was a Teacher’s Aide at Washington Elementary working with autistic children. She worked there until health problems required her to change to Green Acres Elementary. Those health problems eventually forced her to take an early disability retirement, which saddened her greatly.

Kaye was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in several callings. She was excited about a temple coming to Pocatello so she could attend. Kaye loved to sew and was an excellent seamstress. She sewed clothes for her children, things for scouting, doctors and many special requests. She also loved to cook and bake, took up cake decorating, and made wedding cakes for her kids and others. She also made candy and shared her creations with everyone. Kaye loved craft projects and was always working on them. There was rarely any time that she didn’t have a project in her hands and many waiting to be finished.

Kaye is survived by her husband/caregiver, Todd G. Hunter, Pocatello, ID; daughter, Michelle (Dave) Otis, Tualatin, OR, son, Jason Hunter, Hockley, TX, daughter, Sandra (Eric) Millard, Pocatello, ID, son, Shawn (Jessica) Hunter, Blackfoot, ID, son, Ryan (Aisha) Hunter, Fruitland, ID; sister, Roylene (Fred) Stewart, Twin Falls, ID; 9 grandchildren, another grandchild on the way, and 1 great-grandchild.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Barbara Rich; niece, Karen Rich; and sister, Janet Keller.

A viewing will be held on Fri. Dec. 7 from 5-7 pm at Colonial Funeral Home, 2005 S. 4th Ave. Pocatello, ID.

Funeral services will be on Sat. Dec. 8 at 2 pm at the LDS Chapel, 954 E. Walnut St. Pocatello, ID, with a viewing for one hour prior.

Interment will follow at Mountain View Cemetery, 1520 S. 5th Ave. Pocatello, ID.

To the Family,
I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss.
It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your loved one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your loved one is up in heaven.
I found what God promises in the Bible helpful. At Acts 24:15 it says “And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead.”
This promise has consoled me when my father died. Hopefully, it can provide some hope and comfort to your family.

My deepest condolences to the Family on the lost of your dear loved one may you find comfort in God’s promise that He will do away with death forever and wipe away the tears from all faces (Isa 25:8)

I extend my deepest sympathies to the family.  When a family member dies, our pain and grief can be unbearable. May the God of all comfort (2 Cor. 1:3, 4) give the family the strength and comfort in this time of need. God promises that death will be no more (Rev 21:4). As we wait on that promise to be fulfilled,  may the God of comfort give you the strength to endure.

I am so sorry and my condolences to Todd, Sandra, Renae, Jan, and the rest of the family for your loss. My apologies for not attending. I just found out today about Kaye's passing.

Kaye was a wonderful, caring, loving, understanding, and compassionate co-worker, assistant, and friend. She always had kind words to say about anyone and saw the positive in everything. She will be greatly missed! We lost touch through the years, but I never lost touch of the memories we had! My daughter and I send our prayers and love!
