Marion Hunter was a validated American supercentenarian who died in 2016 at the age of 110.
Marion Hunter was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, on 27 September 1905. Hunter attended prestigious schools and graduated from the University of Minnesota with an English degree. Though she never had a formal career, she supported her family and remained intellectually engaged. While her childhood dancing dreams were redirected to academics, she continued dancing with her husband, whom she met in high school.
Hunter and her husband built one of Edina’s first homes south of 50th Street, and she lived there for 76 years. They helped found the Edina Country Club while raising two daughters. After surviving breast cancer, Hunter volunteered at St. Barnabas Hospital and actively participated in The Woman’s Club for over 50 years. Remarkably, she kept a daily diary from her late teens until she was 106.
Hunter passed away in Bloomington, Minnesota, USA, on 2 August 2016, at the age of 110 years, 310 days. She was survived by her two daughters, six grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
