Diana Marie Scott Hunt
Diana Marie Scott Hunt, Dee, departed for her heavenly home at 5:24pm on Thursday, January 11, 2018 after a valiant, 20+ year battle against multiple sclerosis. Dee is survived by her husband, soul-mate, and caregiver of 41 years, Robert Marshall Hunt. They made their lifelong home in Hoges Chapel near Pembroke, Virginia. Left to cherish memories of their precious mother are her children: Michael Scotty Scott (Gena) of Dublin, Hilary Hunt Newby (Randall) of Wytheville, and Kara Elizabeth Hale (Jason) of Crockett. Seven grandchildren will miss their Nanas (or GranDees) unconditional love here on earth: Ryan Newby, Emmerson Scott, Virginia Grace Hale, Scarlett Hale, Audrey Hale, Daisy Hale, and great-grandson, Aavin Burns. Diana is also survived by her loving brother Morgan E. Scott, Jr. (Terry) of Salem, a nephew, Reno Scott, and niece, Nora Bryant (Mark) and their children. 1 John 4:7 states Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. Dianas life was an example of this directive. She never spoke harshly or judged, but reached out in love to everyone she ever met, including the hundreds of children she served in her 22-year tenure as speech pathologist for Giles County Public Schools. Her heart for people and children will live on in so many whose lives she touched. The family would like to thank her wonderful caregivers Rhonda Perry and Jennifer Truelove for their devotion to and love for Miss Dee. Also, the family has gratitude for the staff of Lewis Gale Medical Center in Salem, VA for their top-notch, compassionate care for Dee and her family in her final days. The family will receive friends on Monday, January 15, 2018 at Givens Funeral Home in Pearisburg from 5-7p.m., with a memorial service immediately following. Anyone who wishes to honor Dee and her fight may make memorial contributions to The Multiple Sclerosis Society at www.nationalmssociety.org. The Hunt family is being served by Givens Funeral Home, Pearisburg, Virginia.
