Sylvia Satteson Hunt, 85, joined God's choir of angels on December 23rd surrounded by her loving family.
A resident of Hopewell Township for 57 years, Sylvia and her husband, Bob, recently moved to the independent living community at Twining Village in Holland, PA.
A Music Education graduate of West Chester State Teachers College, Sylvia retired after over 30 years as a music teacher in the Hopewell Valley and Lawrence Township School Districts. She spent many years teaching private piano lessons in her home.
She was a faithful member of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Pennington for over 50 years, where she served on the Vestry and the Altar Guild and sang in the church choir. She was a Healthy Bones program instructor and led the Tuesday Bible Study Group.
Sylvia had an avid passion for music, was a lover of birds and all wildlife and spent countless hours knitting and crocheting. Until recently, she was a member of a local bowling league and has one perfect game to her credit.
She is survived by her husband Bob with whom she just celebrated 60 years of marriage in October; daughters and sons-in-law Patty & Jonathan Holmes and Debbie & Mark Oschmann; son and daughter-in-law Ken and Lucia Hunt; grandchildren Shannon Dowling, Colin Holmes and Matthew, Brianna and Christopher Hunt; great-grandchildren Pandora, Lorelai and Audrey Leatherman. She was predeceased by her great-grandson, Aiden Leatherman.
Always a warm smile and an amazing woman of faith, she will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
