April 24, 1999

Jennifer H. Luey, a Federal Hill resident and former preschool teacher, died at her home Thursday of heart problems related to diabetes. She was 29.

From 1995 until she left in September to raise her son, Mrs. Luey had been on the faculty of the Downtown Baltimore Children's Center. Earlier, she taught at Bethesda Lynnbrook Children's Center.

"She was a young, progressive teacher who had wonderful ideas and believed that children learned through play," said David Robinson, director of the Downtown Baltimore Children's Center.

"Everyone here has been so affected by her death -- children, teachers and parents. She was such a caring and nurturing person," he said.

The former Jennifer Hunter was born and raised in Washington. She graduated from Holton-Arms School in 1987. She attended the University of Vermont and earned a bachelor's degree in English literature from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1991.

Mrs. Luey married Charles E. Luey in 1996. She was a communicant of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Redeemer.

She enjoyed entertaining, swimming and collecting books.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. today at St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Mount St. Alban's, at Wisconsin and Massachusetts avenues in Washington.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Luey is survived by her 6-month-old son, Matthew Chase Luey; her parents, Allan A. Hunter Jr. and Helen-Louise Hunter of Bethesda; and three brothers, Keith A. Hunter of Fairfax, Va., Brian S. Hunter of Pittsburgh and Allan A. Hunter III of Bethesda.
