Loralie Ann Hunter, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away unexpectedly on Friday April 23, 2021, at 71 years old.
The daughter of the late Rex and Clara (Gordnier) Cronk, Loralie was born on April 8, 1950 in Battle Creek, MI. She married Larry Bass in 1968, together they had Troy Bass, Daniel Bass, and Michelle (Bass) Bush. Their marriage later ended. She married Ross Hunter on November 7, 1998, however their relationship began in 1985. He preceded her in death on April 10, 2021.
Loralie's infectious personality touched everyone she met, including the stranger in front of her in line at the grocery store. She always made sure to be the first person to call friends and family on their birthdays, often singing over voicemail if they didn't pick up their phone. No stray cat went hungry at her house. She was a loyal and compassionate person who never hesitated to help a friend in need. Everybody loved her. Anyone who was lucky enough to meet Loralie, has a fun or hilarious story about something she did or said in their presence. She shared a special relationship with her grandchildren and was so proud of their individual personalities and achievements.
She is lovingly remembered by her children, Daniel (Kelly) Bass, Michelle (John) Bush; grandchildren, Kenneth Bass, Sara (Jake) Esselink, Joshua Bass, Hailey French, Brynlee Bass, Clayton (Kayla) Beers, Rachelle Beers, Christina (Jeff) Lipscomb, Jane Bush; six great-grandchildren.
