On June 29, 2012, at 77 years, Rabia Carol Hunter peacefully left us to begin her next adventure. Rabia was a native San Franciscan, born to Inez and Jack Hunter. As a young girl she loved the outdoors, horseback riding and working as a camp counselor. At age 27, married and with two young children, she was diagnosed with cancer. Her successful battle against cancer motivated her to be, and do, more with “this wonderful life.” She raised her two children Suzanne and Alex Wierbinski, with unconditional love and lots of laughter. She sought truth in many spiritual paths, from Sufism to Hinduism, Buddhism to the Unitarian Church, focusing on the love, harmony, and beauty she found in each. Always ready for a new adventure, she traveled to India three times, lived at Lama Foundation in the San Cristobal Mountains, and developed many deep and loving friendships around the world. As a life long activist, she continually gave back to her community through volunteerism. Her most recent volunteer work included serving on the Advisory Board of the Area Agency on Aging (and Chair of the Legislative Committee), as a driver for Meals on Wheels, as a volunteer at the Charlotte Maxwell Complimentary Clinic for alternative healing for women with cancer, as a cook at Zen Hospice, and as a docent at San Francisco City Hall. Friends and family are invited to the celebration of Rabia’s life which will be held July 29, 1:30 p.m. at the Deer Park Villa in Fairfax.
