Obituary for Melvia Sullivan (Hunt)

Melvia Sullivan (Hunt)
1926 - 2021

Melvia Sullivan (Hunt), passed away peacefully Tuesday June 22nd, 2021 from natural causes, surrounded by loved ones in Spring Glen Utah. Melvia was born to Moroni and Delta Hunt. She was one of many children. (Sylva is still alive)

She married Mr. Donahue and they had a daughter Susan (William) Strong of Alaska. Mr. Donahue was killed in the Castlegate mine accident shortly after they were married. Melvia met Larry Sullivan married in Salt Lake City, Utah and had four more children; Mary (Chris) Gosdis, Salt Lake City, UT, Betty Ann (Jack) Cooper, Spring Glen, UT, Larry Jr. (Doug) Sullivan, East Carbon, UT and Mark Sullivan, Spring Glen, UT. Melvia has many many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren whom she loved very much! I know everyone loved going to grandma and grandpa’s house.

Melvia was a care taker of others her whole life. She believed “the greatest thing you needed to learn here on earth is to love and forgive. Nothing else matters, as long as you love one another.”

Melvia didn’t want to have a funeral, she wanted a celebration of life and to have her ashes spread with her husbands.
