Charlie Hunter Obituary

A baby girl was born to Dorothy Mae Bosley Hunter and Charley Hunter on January 16, 1948  the day after her dad had passed. Charlie Mae was named after both of her parents.


Both parents, her brothers Roylee’, Charles and Eddie Joe Hunter, sisters Johanna , Christine Hunter, Gearline Ruff and Antoinette Hunter  preceded her in death,


Charlie was educated in Kansas City Kansas attending Dunbar, Northeast and Sumner high school.


In 1966 Charlie started a career that would expand over fifty plus years, working at Kansas City Feather Company making pillows, cushions and upholstering for hospitals. Later she started working for Jim Dar Enterprise until her health began to fail.


Mom you where a superb cook I'm going to miss your baked beans, potato salad, 7~up cake and your famous homemade banana pudding.


Charlie loved planning events for the family picnics at Wyandotte Lake. She would bake and have garage sales to raise money to take the kids to Worlds of Fun.


Mommy joined Mt Olive Baptist Church in 1988 under the leadership of Pastor Charles Morgan. Charlie enjoyed attending Sunday School, Bible Study and Nourishing Baptist Class. While at Mt Olive she began teaching Sunday School for the teenagers. In 2003 she joined Guiding Star Baptist church under leadership Pastor David Lee, where she continued her routine with her studies. This time she began teaching the Women's Sunday School Class which she enjoyed. But it was really exciting when the men were apart of the class. She knew Brother Owens and her brother Cornell Hunter were going to disrupt the class. She also served as head of the culinary team. My mom loved her church family and her Pastor. As her health begun to decline she was no longer able to attend church.  She never forgot her love for the Lord. Often we would hear her call on Him, even after her mind began to deteriorate. I could still hear her trying to pray.


Charlie leaves to carry on her legacy 2 daughters; Bridget Cunningham, of the home, Andrea Cunningham, Atlanta, GA.; 3 grandchildren that she loved unconditionally, Calandra Wright, Atlanta, GA., twins Jayda Cunningham, of the home and Jaylen Cunningham, North Carolina, 2 sisters; Dorothy Ruth Hunter, Texas, Gearldine Hunter (Willie), Kansas City, KS.,  3 brothers; Cornell Hunter, Jerry Hunter, and  Javelle (Theresa) Hunter all of Kansas City Kansas, sister in law; Evangeline Hunter, of Kansas City Kansas, best friends; Henry Calhoun Sr. and Eugene Tucker, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
