Eunice was born at home in Emerson, Idaho, to Gilbert Lenz Hunt and Carol Marie Nelson Hunt; she was 87 years old. She was the eldest daughter of four children. Eunice attended school in Emerson/Heyburn, Idaho, and received her bachelor’s degree from Utah State University in home economics. She later earned her master’s degree from Utah State University in home economics. On August 21, 1952, she married her sweetheart, Robert Allen Pixton in the Salt Lake Temple. Teaching was her passion – she taught home economics at Hillcrest High School for 25 years. She served as a temple worker in the Jordan River Temple and later, the Draper Temple together for 14 years. In 1993-94, she and her husband served a church mission to the Baton Rouge Louisiana Mission.
