Obituary of Pauline Hunt

Please share a memory of Pauline to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Pauline (nee Colorio) Hunt, 82, passed away peacefully at her home in Glastonbury, CT on Sunday, February 27. 

Pauline was born in Worcester, MA to Mary and Anthony Colorio. The eldest of eleven siblings, Pauline was raised in a loving home with her extended family ever-present, including her dear cousin Shirley. She graduated from Sacred Heart High School 1957.

Pauline retired from Aetna Life and Casualty Insurance. She courageously moved her family to Connecticut in 1976 for better opportunities within Aetna’s Hartford office. Soon after, she met her beloved husband of 42 years, Peter Hunt, and moved to Glastonbury. 

 Pauline and Peter shared an infectious humor and playfulness. Throughout their marriage, they enjoyed traveling around the world together, spending weekends at Amston Lake, and visiting Florida with Pauline's favorite Uncle Frankie. In retirement they maintained an enviable social schedule. Pauline particularly enjoyed participating in Eastern Star. 

Pauline also loved spending time with her grandchildren, she could often be seen in the audience of school plays and concerts, dance recitals, and graduations. Her grandchildren looked forward to every opportunity to spend the day at “Nonnie’s house,” where they could always find treats in the cookie jar and learned important life lessons–like how to brew Nonnie’s perfect cup of coffee.

In addition to her husband, Peter Hunt, Pauline is also survived by her daughters and their husbands, Suzanne and Peter, Sharon and Bob, and Sandra and Thomas, as well as her step-daughters Laurie and Terry. She is also survived by her siblings Dominic, Stevie, Jimmy, Maryanne, Ann, Michael, Dennis and David, and her cousin Shirley. In addition, she is survived by her grandchildren Camile, Samantha, Christina, Avery, Joey, James, Jenny, and Jessie, and great-grandchildren Noel, Victor, Michael, Alexander, and Greyson. She is predeceased by her sister Janice and brother Tony.
