Mary Allen Cooper Hunter

In loving memory of our precious Mother, Mary Allen Cooper Hunter, who passed into God’s loving arms, on August 6th, 2019. Mary was born in Epps, LA on October 15, 1936, to EJ Cooper and Hazel Wallace Cooper. She grew up in Bossier City, LA, graduating from Bossier High School. Just shy of age 17, she married Virgil Ray Hunter, and embarked on her life as an Air Force wife and a few years later, as a Mother. Together they had four children, Mary Virginia (Ginny) Hunter, Jodie Anne Hunter, Brian Ray Hunter and Amy Clarice Hunter. Eventually, they settled in Sarepta, LA, where they raised their children. She was a wonderful wife, Mother, sister, niece, aunt and friend. She loved to garden, sew, cook, fish, camp, travel and serve others. Most of all, she loved God. Everyone that knew her, loved her kind, funny, strong, independent spirit. In 1972, she was drawn back to school. She became an LPN and spent her entire nursing career caring for the elderly and disabled, first in Homer, La, then Mead‐ owview in Minden, La, and finally retired from The Glen, in Shreveport, La. After her retirement, she remarried, John Golden, of Karnack, TX, and her next 25 years were spent doing the things she loved most, fishing, gardening, traveling and spending time with family every chance she had. She hosted the best tea parties ever, and loved teaching her grandchildren to bake. She is survived by her husband of 33 years, Ray Hunter, her 4 children and their spouses, Ginny Sciortino
