Obituary of Helen E. Hunter

Helen E. Hunter, 95, of Morris Plains, NJ passed away peacefully at her home with her family by her side on August 30, 2020. Born in Basking Ridge, NJ, Helen resided in Morris Plains for most of her life. Helen graduated from Bernards High School in 1943. Helen’s world revolved around her family, dear friends, volunteerism, and her faith. Helen worked at the Lyons, NJ VA Hospital from 1943-1952 and volunteered as a Eucharistic Minister at Morris View Nursing Home for over 30 years. Helen was a parishioner of St. Virgil Church for over 50 years where she was a member of the church choir for over 25 years and was heavily involved in church activities and volunteer work through the parish. Helen participated in many senior activities such as the Red Hats, St. Virgil’s Prime Time, and the Monday Seniors. Helen thrived when she was involved in her volunteer work and spending quality time with her family and friends. Helen was an avid reader, gardener, enjoyed Broadway shows, cooking, and loved to travel. Her travels brought her all over the world – from Australia to Taiwan. Helen is survived by her beloved children, Mark P. Hunter and his wife, Bridgette, Robert J. Hunter, Jr., Gregory J. Hunter, Brian J. Hunter and his wife, Gislaine, Kathleen M. Hunter and Michael P.
