Obituary and Arrangements for Kathy Hunter

The Department is saddened to learn that Kathy Hunter, wife of past president Lee Hunter, passed away after a courageous fight with cancer. Kathy was an active member of the Cabin John Park Ladies Auxiliary and was a  major supporter of the department. She was a majorette in both the 1970s and 1980s, and at one point was the most decorated majorette in the state of Maryland. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hunter Family at this difficult time and the department stands ready to assist them.
