Margaret ‘Maggie’ Holley Hunt

SALISBURY — Margaret “Maggie” Holley Hunt passed away on Jan. 7, 2021, at the home of her daughter, with family by her side after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Maggie was born on May 27, 1936, in Sharon, to Elizabeth and Marshall McLane.

She was a proud Raggie from Mount Riga in Salisbury, where the family resided. The family had many hard times and the siblings found strength in each other. Maggie graduated from Housatonic Valley Regional High School.

She married Howard Hunt and together they raised their children in Fishkill, N.Y. Later in life, they became snowbirds, spending winters in Port Orange, Fla. 

Maggie and Howie were always up for a good time. She took every opportunity to travel, attend plays and concerts and just spend time with people. Maggie never found someone she couldn’t strike up a conversation with and people were always in awe of her beautiful blue eyes. 

Maggie adored her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Margaret was predeceased by her parents, and siblings Mary Elizabeth, Marshall “Brud,” Katherine “Kay,” and Barbara “Babs.” She was also predeceased by her husband; her children Maxwell and Louise; and her grandson Brett Hunt.

She is survived by her children Jeffrey and his wife, Colleen, Gary, Melanie and her husband, Lance Kepler, Randy, Tim and his wife, Karen, and Stephanie and her husband, Andy Gheen; her siblings, Rod and Michael; her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who loved their Nanny. Maggie had a special place in her heart for her many nieces and nephews.

Per Maggie’s request, there will be no services. She will be buried in Fishkill Rural Cemetery by her daughter Louise.

Kindly consider donations to High Peaks Hospice, 454 Glen St., Glens Falls, NY 12801, who provided compassionate care to Maggie and her family through this most difficult time.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Tunison Funeral Home, 105 Lake Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
