August 30, 1934 – June 13, 2019
Marlene passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family and the love of her life David A. Hunt, MD, just short of their 34th wedding anniversary. Her last days were blurred by Alzheimer’s Disease which she had battled for a number of years, but ultimately succumbed to cancer. Marlene is survived by her husband, David A. Hunt, MD., her children, Jay Steinmeyer (Maura) of Incline Village, NV, Loraine Steinmeyer of Reno, NV and Sandra Baluch (Michael) of Omaha, NE. Her step children, Elizabeth Hunt of Vienna, Austria, John Hunt (June) of Reno, NV, Carolyn Hunt of San Rafael, CA, Richard Hunt (Melinda) of Albuquerque,NM, and Robert Hunt (Deanna) of Carson City, NV. She was the Nana of 18, whom she loved dearly and Great Nana of 6, the joy in her last days.
Marlene was a light in the room. She was an advocate of family and lovingly supported them in all of their life adventures, selflessly. She was there at a moment’s notice for anyone in need and gave her all in bringing joy to others. At times, she gave more than she should have, but that was typical. If you ask, there are many children who are now adults who considered Marlene a second mom that guided them as needed at points in their lives. Marlene never met a stranger and was an instant ally to all whom she loved. Her light will burn brightly within the hearts of all she has touched.
Marlene will be missed greatly by her family and friends far and wide throughout the world! She is gone from this earth but will forever be remembered for her love and spirit! Please consider donating to the Alzheimer’s Association in search of a cure in her memory,
