Update Monday, October 3: Dr. Huntoon’s clinic is now closed for business though the office staff is still making and receiving calls from patients with any questions.
Reader Janna wrote to tell us that she had read in the Times earlier in the week that Dr. Jenefer S. Huntoon had passed away on September 21. Dr. Huntoon was a naturopath here in Wallingford, with offices on the SW corner of 45th and Interlaken. You can view her obituary from the Seattle Times here. A memorial service was held earlier in the week at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard.
I spoke with Camden, one of Dr. Huntoon’s assistants who told me that her passing was very sudden and unexpected. Dr. Huntoon had been working and seeing patients, and her passing was a great shock to everyone.
Camden also said that she and Shiree (another assistant in the office) have been making calls to patients letting them know of Dr. Huntoon’s passing. Though this was Dr. Huntoon’s private practice, Camden noted that “There are physicians who are making themselves available, so we are open and the staff is here to talk with patients.”
We wish all of Dr. Huntoon’s patients, colleagues, family, and friends our deepest sympathies.
