Shrewsbury – Jean G. (Marsden) Hunt, 86, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 3, 2023, with family by her side.
Jean leaves behind three children, Laurie Corkery and her husband Michael of Millbury, Paula Hunt of Chelmsford, and Lucian Hunt and his wife Dawn of Millbury; two sisters, Fay Bahmermann and Judi Tyler both from Shrewsbury; brothers Jay, David, Kim, Doug, and Tom Marsden, eight grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her loving daughter Kathy (Hunt) McFarlin brothers Wallace and Rand Marsden, and sister Carol Caefer.
Jean was well known for her compassion and love, which she expressed in the spirit of service in everything she did. After raising her family, Jean earned a nursing degree. Her compassion moved her to work as a psychiatric nurse at Worcester State Hospital where she served until retirement in 2004.
Jean was one of the founding members of Shrewsbury First Baptist Church, currently known as Chapel on the Hill. She loved shopping, swimming, church activities, and spending time with family and many friends. With love, Jean opened her heart and her home to many people over the years, offering welcome and wisdom to all. She was deeply passionate to enable children to attend summer camp weeks, vacation bible schools, and encouraged others through example and kindness.
We invite family and friends to a celebration of life service on Saturday November 18, 2023, at 12 noon in the Chapel on the Hill, 145 Memorial Drive (RT 140) Shrewsbury, MA 01545. A remembrance and fellowship meal will follow nearby.
