Saint Hunna

Hunna

Saint Hunna (Una) (d. 679) is a French saint. She was the daughter of a duke, and later married Huno of Hunnawetyer. She devoted herself to serving the poor of Strasbourg, France. She provided them baths, earning her the name "the Holy Washerwoman".

Her son was baptized by Deodatus of Nevers and was therefore also called Deodatus. Her son is also venerated as a saint.

Veneration

Hunna was canonized in 1520 by Pope Leo X. Her feast day is celebrated on April 15.
