Gloria Joan Hunt was born on June 13, 1934, at the Old Cheyenne Agency to Jack and Jennie (Annis) Hunt. She was the third oldest of eleven children. Her dad never liked any of his children’s names so he called her Jo. The kids in school always called her Hunts a Bear! She grew up on the family ranch southwest of Eagle Butte. It was four miles to the country school Joan and her siblings attended. They rode horseback to get there and back. She went to high school in Eagle Butte and graduated in 1952. Following high school, she attended summer college in Spearfish and received her teacher’s certificate. She began teaching in Gillette, WY, at a country school. She spent two years there before returning home.
