Mary Kaye Hunt, age 76, born May 23, 1942, celebrated her glorious home going to Heaven on November 9, 2018. 

Mary Kaye joyfully joins her father, mother, brother, sister, former husband, family and friends in Heaven. Her children, Allison, Amanda, Kristen, and Matthew cheered her Home going with love, respect, honor, peace, and compassion.

Mary Kaye graduated valedictorian from Rockford high school, was a cheerleader and hospital volunteer. 

Taking care of her family was her first priority, after Jesus. She was an excellent executive secretary for the family office of Curt Carlson-Carlson companies, Plymouth MN; employed with Carlson companies for 20 years.

 After retirement she wanted to remain busy-she was a loved part time receptionist at Clarebridge of Plymouth -adored by residents, families, and staff.

The light of Jesus shone through Mary Kaye . That pure light lit up ever place she went, and every heart she touched. Her faith in the Lord Jesus was unwavering.

Mary Kaye enjoyed long summer drives. rainbows, and sunsets. In the spring, she enjoyed seeing the maple syrup buckets on the trees. Autumnal colors and sparkling white snow brought joy to her heart. She liked snowmen, and cardinals too!

Mary Kaye was beautiful inside and out-her bright smile and lovely face were a gift from God. The gentle love of Jesus was evident in her love for people.

Her favorite scripture, Romans 8:28, “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose”, was an encouragement to her children and others. Mary Kaye spoke this verse frequently-it uplifted all who would hear.

She will be missed dearly by many, many friends, a loving family, and her children. Mary Kaye ran her race well, and is in the arms of Jesus. We will see her again! Hallelujah!

    So sorry for your loss. Mary and I were classmates at Rockford. I spent lots of time at her parent’s home.

    We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Mary Kay. We met her at Clarebridge when our mother was there. She was a delight and we just loved her. Even after our mom’s passing,we would call and catch up with Mary Kay. She was a wonderful, caring, warm friend and she will be greatly missed. Heaven just got a beautiful angel. Our sincere sympathies to her family.
    RIP Mary Kay. The Stimson’s

    I graduated with her sister Georgie. I spent lots of time at her house. Went to calif to see her when I was 15 with Georgie. Mary was a beautiful person always smiling. She is with her family now.

    Mary Kaye was the receptionist at Clarebridge when my dad went into memory care. She had a presence that encompassed everyone with such love. I felt as if I had known her forever. She made the sadness of watching and interacting with dad and the others afflicted with dementia a reality that could be faced and embraced with kindness, humor and dignity. And, all through that, she endured such personal pain; her arthritis, her need for surgeries on both legs. Still she met each of us with that brilliant, warm smile. She’d ask about our families. She gave such genuine enveloping hugs. Others, whose parents and spouses had passed away at Clarebridge Care would still come back to visit and experience her compassion and her infinite good nature. What an amazing listener she was. Once, she told me that she would have liked to be a singer sitting atop a piano. Maybe she’s doing that now. How blessed I was to have her friendship. Oh, I will miss her!

    Matt and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mary Kaye was one of a kind, so loving and compassionate! We enjoyed many laughs together along the way. She had the gift of Encouragement for the many lives she touched. I can still see her with the residents gathered around her desk at Brookdale Clare Bridge. Even though they may have been deep in the stages of various forms of dementia, I am sure that they could sense her love! Mary Kaye was a very remarkable person who will be deeply missed by many, including me. God bless you, Mary Kaye!
