Marie Delores Hunter, 77, passed away peacefully July 1, 2014 with family by her side. She was born in Fargo, ND on May 13, 1937 to the late Henry and Delores Brattensborg.

Marie grew up in Fargo, ND and met her husband Charles while attending North Dakota State University. They have been married for 55 years. She dedicated her life to being a loving wife, mother and grandmother, traveled worldwide supporting her husband's 37 year career with Boeing, building loving and stable homes each place they resided. They retired to Lake Havasu 14 years ago and she enjoyed having her children, grandchildren, relatives and friends visit.

One of Marie's favorite travel experiences was the Safari trip to Africa, and seeing the giraffes. She maintained connections with her Shanley High School Potluck Club friends and enjoyed their times together. She loved the challenge of crossword puzzles and watching the multitude of hummingbirds that frequented the feeders in her yard.

Marie is survived by her husband Charles Hunter; son, Roger Hunter of Renton, WA; daughters Joan Hunter (Jorgan Light) of Renton, WA and Patty Kindsvater (Kent), of Enumclaw, WA as well as four grandchildren (Brett, Kurt, Lars and Annika).
