Sharon Lee (Hunter) Holt

LONGWOOD, Fla. — May 8, 1935 - March 28, 2013

Sharon Lee (Hunter) Holt passed away peacefully at her home in Longwood Florida on March 28 at the age of 77.

She was born to Don and Gretchen Hunter on May 8, 1935 in Wichita, Kansas, but moved at a young age to Clinton, Iowa, which she always considered her true ‘home town’. In 1957 she moved to Florida where she married Hank Kmieciak, and began a long and dedicated career as an OR nurse. In June 1970, she remarried her old Clinton high-school sweetheart Lynton “Bill” Holt, who preceded her in death almost exactly four years to the day. Funeral services are taking place April 4th at Annunciation Catholic Church in Altamonte Springs, FL.

Sharon was a warm, outgoing woman who loved to be around other people. She had a beautiful voice and adored music. In her younger years, she was active in local choirs and occasionally sang on the Clinton radio station. She also loved traveling, seeing a great deal of the US helping to promote the Holt’s Hobbies toy soldier business that she ran with her husband and, later in life, much of Europe as well on numerous trips.

Sharon is survived by her sisters Bette Lamberti, Susan Domorski and Mary Ellen Rivera; her children Karen Holt, Steven Holt and Kathleen Seaton; grandchildren Tessa Francavilla, Justin Barfield and Alicia Seaton; great-grandchildren Jaylin Pizzaro, Gianna Francavilla, Vincent Leon, and Elijah, Sierra and Amaya Barfield; nine nieces and nephews: and 12 great-nieces and nephews – by all of whom “Nonnie” will be greatly missed.
