Idamae Sloan Hunter

FORT WORTH – Idamae Sloan Hunter, 89, died Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, one week shy of her 90th birthday.

Service is 11:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in Mount Olivet Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Mount Olivet Cemetery. Visitation and a reception will follow from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at Mount Olivet.

She was born in Ponca City, Okla., and grew up in Enid, Okla. She attended Southwestern Bible School and gave piano lessons while studying Theology. She was a talented pianist who would play from written music but had much more fun playing “by ear.” After graduating from college she moved to the Fort Worth area, where she played piano for her church. It was there that she met her husband, Clovis L. Hunter. Some of her children’s fondest memories are of her playing gospel music on the piano or playing the piano along with their rock and roll music.

Idamae’s father taught her to operate a linotype machine and with this skill she pursued a career in publishing. She had a long, full life while always being very supportive to her family. She had many stories to tell about living through the depression.

Survivors include her daughters, Clovis Wetzel, Linda Whitehouse and husband, Floyd, and Betty Hunter; grandchildren, Brad Wetzel, Stephanie Elder and husband, Rick, Jennifer Horton and husband, Lance, Adonis Bitar and wife, Dawn, Anne Stith and husband, Kyle, and Heather Sanders and husband, Cam; and 12 great-grandchildren. 

Idamae was preceded in death by her husband, Clovis L. Hunter; her parents, Arthur P. Sloan and Lena Orvig Sloan; three sisters, Alice Huddleston, Agnes Davis and Juanita Sloan; and a brother, Albert Cecil Sloan.

Her memory may be honored by a gift to the James L. West Special Care Center at 1111 Summit Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76102.
