Diana Lynn Hunt

Diana Lynn Hunt


Diana Lynn Hunt was born on September 8, 1946 in Chicago, IL, and passed away on June 20, 2018 with family and her dogs at her side.

Her early life was marked by struggle and hardship, which instilled in her a strong work ethic. She lived in numerous places across the country, including Reno, San Francisco, and Sedro-Wooley. Intensely proud and private, Diana was enigmatic. She was known by many, yet by few.

Much of her career was spent in the gaming industry, including a stint at Harrah's Casino in Reno, NV. Upon moving to Everett, she began working for the Tulalip Resort Casino, ultimately staying there for almost twenty years. Affectionately known as "Big Red", she was the small and fierce Assistant Pit Manager until her retirement several years ago.

A lover of animals, Lord of the Rings, and opera, Diana also read widely, including many sci-fi and mystery novels.

Though predeceased by her son, Michael Yancey, and great-grandson Joseph Michaels, Diana is survived by her husband, John, her daughters Carmen (Steve) Michaels, Michelle (Steve Harris) Rick, and Joanna (Jen Ham) Hunt, as well as eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
