Patricia “Patty” Kay Hurt, 60, of La Junta passed away on December 21, 2020 at the Bent County Healthcare Center of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on February 27, 1960 in Monte Vista to E. Ross & Berneice Lou (Grett) Hurt.

Patty was an alumna of Western State in Gunnison, CO where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. She made her home in the Arkansas Valley for the last 35 years and had a fruitful career, most notably serving the City of La Junta as Finance Director. Her wholehearted commitment to her work and her community are reflected in the admiration of her peers and neighbors. She was active in the Boy Scouts, Koshares, and numerous other service organizations throughout her lifetime where she greatly contributed to the growth and development of our communities and children.

Patty will be profoundly missed by her children, grandchildren, and family. Her generosity and strength of character will be fondly remembered. The last years of her life were marked by courage in her struggle with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. She persevered through harrowing trials and her spirit is finally at peace. May she rest well knowing we will carry her unyielding love on in our hearts and memories.

Patty is survived by her two grandchildren, Thomas Avila and Lyra Hurt; her three children, Kara (Tom) Hurt-Avila; Nathan and Eric Hurt; her siblings, Kathy Burnsed, Shirley Cannon, and Rick Hurt; her father, Ross Hurt and stepmother, Diane Hurt; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
