A 1942 graduate of Annandale High School, Arlayne spent most of her life nearby, except for one year in Pensacola, Fla. Arlayne married Charles E. Hunt Aug. 26, 1949. They estab- lished a home and farmed south of Kimball. In 1957, they moved to St. Nicholas to raise crops, cows, and kids. In 1966, ,they bought a farm outside of Fair Haven on Hunt Road, and they lived there until moving to assisted living in March 2010. Arlayne enrolled at St_ Cloud Nor- mal School (now St_ Cloud State Uni- versity) in 1943. After a year of college, she was granted a special teaching license because of a desperate teacher shortage because of the war. She taught in a one-room schoolhouse for three year.s, grades 1-8. Her salarywas $75 a month, and her duties included cleaning the school, drawing water, and chopping wood. Her next teach- ing job was the Fair Haven School, grades 1-4, at a monthly salary of $125, without the cleaning and chop- ping duties. She taught at Fair Haven for a year. Later, two of her students' sons would marry her daughters. Many years later, after her children were all in school, Arlayne recaptured her teaching dream by providing one- on-one and small-group mentor- ing for students in the Kimball Area Schools. She was named "Outstand- ing Lay Person in Education" in 1980. After retiring from the school system, Arlayne could be found telling her favorite story, "The.Giv- ing Tree," to many of the visitors at the Twin Barn Farm. On several occasions, Annandale's Pioneer Pallbearers were Ben's eight Park's one-room school house was filled with her grandchildren as she held school for a day. She often hosted afternoon "teas" of root beer and goodies for her grand- children followed by an art lesson or scavenger hunt. Arlayne loved the arts: acting writing, painting, creating, and per- forming; in fact, she gave her first performance when she was 3. She served as a 4-H leader for many years providing her children with many opportunities to grow and lead. She wrote and directed many of their Share-the-Fun skits, and she provided creative ideas for their booths and demonstrations. She received the Gold Clover award in 1976 for her leadership, as well as the "Friend of 4-H" award in 1986. Aflayne was a talented seam- stress, enjoyed reading her Bible, and was an active member of her church. As a nature lover, she enjoyed walks in the woods, gardening, and she loved birds. Aflayne was a loving wife, a friend to so many, a wonderful m0m, and an amazing grandmother; she will be missed by many. Aflayne was preceded in death by Charles Hunt, her hus- band of 62 years; brother James Marquardt; sister Shirley Wills; son Richard Joseph Hunt; daugh- ter-in-law Lanette Hunt; and son- in-law Dave Nelson.
