Winifred (Winnie) (Reynolds) Hunter 1948–2023


Born May 25, 1948 in Germany while her father served in the US Army. Died on Veterans Day, November 11, 2023.

After returning to the States, she lived in Three Rivers, Massachusetts. She relocated to the Pacific Northwest where she raised 2 daughters, Christine and Kathleen.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Ethel Reynolds, brother Timothy and sister Debra. She is survived by the love of her life, Bill Dunham, siblings Eddie, (Janice), Linda (Ron), Donald (Evon), Ruth (Ron), Marie and many more extended family.

She moved to The Mountain (Mt. Hood) in 1994 and became a non-flatlander (what mountain folk call Portlanders). Winnie had 3 main job titles which were housekeeper, bartender and home caregiver. She worked all over The Mountain including Timberline, The Resort at the Mountain and just 2 miles from our house, the Brightwood Tavern. Winnie did not know a stranger and she loved to visit with everyone — you might call her a social butterfly. She also loved to cook, especially desserts. Winnie also loved camping, fishing and motorhome trips with her best friend, Billy.

Winnie died of natural causes with her life partner, best friend and love of her life by her side, Billy. She will be deeply missed.

A celebration of Winnie’s life had been planned for January 20, 2024 but due to the extreme Arctic blast which covered so much of the Northwest, it has been postponed until March 2024. Please check the March edition of the Mountain Times for details.

The Family suggests memorials to Mt. Hood Lions Club, 24730 E Woodsey Way, Welches, OR 97067.
