Terri Leigh Hunt-Porcaro
In loving memory of Terri Leigh Hunt-Porcaro of Kirtland, who joined her mother in Heaven on August 26. Her death was the result of cancer, which she fought bravely to overcome.
Terri was born on January 26, 1960, in Lubbock, Texas, as the third child of J.B. (Micki) and Patti Hunt. The family moved to this area in 1964, when her father began his career with Arizona Public Service. She graduated in 1978 from Kirtland Central High School and earned an Associate of Business degree from San Juan College. Terri also graduated summa cum laude from the University of D.C. with a Bachelor of Science degree in computer networking.
Terri was working in the health insurance field in Washington, D.C., when she met her husband, Edward Porcaro, who was a lawyer. The couple enjoyed a trip to London and many other fun adventures together. They lived in Washington, D.C., for several years before returning to Kirtland in 2015.
Terri had a lifelong love of animals and was excited when she purchased Doggie Day Spa in Farmington. She was so happy and so passionate there. She operated the business for as long as she was able to do so.
Terri will be remembered as a hard worker who was always proficient in whatever she tried. She was also skilled in woodworking, which was one of her favorite hobbies.
Terri was preceded in death by her mother, Patricia Hunt, in 1999.
Terri is survived by her husband, Ed Porcaro; her father, J.B. Hunt, and stepmother, Joyce Hunt, of Kirtland; one sister, Marjorie Hunt-Smith (and husband, Paul) of Sedona, Arizona; two brothers, Michael Hunt of Porter, Texas, and Larry Hunt (and wife, Christine) of Farmington. There are also two nephews, Steven Hunt (and wife, Lynsi) of Farmington and J.B. Hunt IV (and wife, Naomi) of San Tan Valley, Arizona; and, one niece, Bianca Hunt of Farmington.
Terri was loved and admired by all who knew her. She will be greatly missed. No services are planned at this time.
