Nancy Carol Hunt

September 17, 1956 ~ April 10, 2022 (age 65)


Nancy Hunt, age 65, of Mystic, passed away Sunday, April 10, 2022 at Wayne County Hospital in Corydon, Iowa after a very brief illness.

Nancy was born on September 17, 1956 in Detroit, Michigan, the daughter of William Booth and Valerie Kae (Fenior) Hunt.  She graduated from Cambridge High School with the Class of 1974.  During high school, Nancy worked at the family restaurant as a waitress in Cambridge, Illinois.  She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, doing yard work and watching her hummingbirds.  She loved animals, and will be missed by her 2 dogs, Dozer and Shrek.  Nancy had a passion for playing cards with her comrades at Doggs RV Park when she was camping.  Nancy was united in marriage to James Lee Medlock, and to this union, two children were born, Sarah and Crystal Medlock.  The couple later divorced.

Left to cherish Nancy’s memory are her soul mate of 41+ years, Dennis Dove of Mystic; her children, Sarah Medlock of Centerville and Crystal Medlock (Buddy Garr) of Ottumwa; her step children, Ginger (Jason) Burgin of Mystic, Gidget (Scott) Arnold and Haley Dove; grandchildren, Millie Murphy, Kolton Wray, Tyler Garr, Jake (Megan) Barber, Josh (Kylie) Barber, Sammie Arnold; and three great grandchildren, Anniston, Karsyn and Ronnie.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, William Booth and Valerie Kae Hunt; a brother, Steve Hunt; and a grandson, Zachary Barber.

We want to thank all of the staff from EveryStep Hospice, Wayne County Hospital, as well as all of the other organizations that came into her home for personal and medical needs through her bout with her illnesses.  All of us loved her dearly, and there will be a great void in our everyday life, but we will carry her spiritually in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

Per Nancy’s wishes, cremation has been accorded.  A Celebration of Life dinner will be held from 1-4PM, Saturday, April 23, 2022 at the Pale Moon in Centerville.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be written to her partner, Dennis Dove, and may be mailed to Lange Funeral Home and Crematory, ATTN: HUNT family, 1900 South 18th Street, Centerville, Iowa 52544.  Condolences may be shared online at or on our funeral home Facebook page.
