On January 17, 1950, the Lord blessed Rebecca Laborah Hunter with a baby girl, Ella Jean Hunter (Teadie). She was the fifth born of eight siblings. Just as the Lord gave her, He called her back home on April 7, 2018. Ella was a kind, thoughtful and loving person. Family and friends called her, “Teadie”. Ella accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at the Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church.
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Ella attended L. L. Campbell Elementary School, Kealing Jr. High, and graduated from the original L. C. Anderson High School in 1968. She enlisted in the U.S. Marines and later furthered her career with the City of Austin Police Department as a 911 dispatcher. She retired in June 2000, after 23 years of loyal service with APD. She then began her employment with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at Austin Bergstrom International Airport Security
Ella was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend of those who knew her. She loved having family outings, playing cards, doing crossword puzzles and an avid “Dallas Cowboys” fan. Her team”always on the road to the Super Bowl”. A woman with a caring heart and beautiful spirit, always making you laugh. She will truly be missed.
Ella is preceded in death by her mother and brother Wilmer Franklin Hunter.
