MARJORY KING-HUNTER 1929 ~ 2023 The family of Marjory King-Hunter announce her peaceful passing on Jan. 8, 2023. She shared her final days with her loved ones by her side. Marjory Ethel Van Brunt was born in Hanna, AB, Oct 20, 1929 and grew up in the Sunnynook, AB area. It was at the little Sunnynook school that she met Larry King-Hunter, who many years later would become her best friend and husband of 59 years. They married in 1954 and began a nomadic life following the oil rigs. Their first daughter, Cheryl was born in 1957 and when their second daughter, Shelly was born in 1961, Larry hit the books and trained as a health inspector. With two small children in tow they moved to Hanna. Son, Wesley joined the family in 1964 just as Larry finished building the house they would call “home” for the next 40 years. Marj was kept busy raising their family for the next few years but when everyone was in school, she returned to work, and joined the staff at the Hanna Nursing Home where she enjoyed her time both with the elderly residents and with her coworkers. In 2004, they retired to Medicine Hat to live closer to family. Larry passed in 2014 and Marj eventually moved to Good Samaritans to make a home for herself where she had more help. She made new friendships there with staff members and fellow residents. Marjory was pre-deceased by her mother, Ethel Van Brunt; and by her beloved husband, Larry King-Hunter. Her memory will be cherished by her brother, Jim (Joan) Van Brunt; her children, Cheryl (Ray) Munro, Shelly Longmore, Wes (Eve) King-Hunter; her grandchildren, Joel (Carly) Longmore, Sean (Meghan) Longmore, Marco Longmore, Heather (Mike) Anderson, Taryn (Leighton) Ramsay, Cari (Parker) Munro; her great grandchildren, Cash and Munro Anderson, Bianca, Parks, and Wynter Ramsay; her dearly loved extended family and friends; her lifelong friend, Evie (Evelynn Stifle); as well as half-siblings, Ed and Bev. A memorial will be held in her honour at a later date. Memorial gifts in Marjory’s name may be made to Hector King-Hunter Pioneer Park, 5th St. W and 3rd Ave. W, 5 St W, Hanna, AB T0J 1P0.
