The year was 1947, applications were being submitted by the angels, to come to earth, obtain a body, and live a life. A sweet little angel’s application was approved to come to earth on July 7, 1947. The parents that were blessed to receive her, give her a body, and guide her through her childhood were Mateland Amos McBride and his beautiful wife, Merna Josephine Stanton, who were already blessed with two other angels, Shirley Kosht and Patty Averett.
December 1968 was an eventful year for her, because that’s when she met the love of her life, Rex Hunt, while they were getting their cars worked on at Peterson Motor in Ogden, Utah. What a blessing Rex received, the best thing that ever happened to him in his life. Wedding bells rang on November 1, 1969, when she walked down the aisle, and was given away by her father, so Kathy and Rex could dedicate their lives to each other, while friends and family looked on.
Rex and Kathy were blessed with their first little angel from Heaven, when their daughters, Tamra Gaye arrived on November 16, 1970. What a bundle of joy she was. August 17, 1974, is when they were blessed with another bundle of joy, Tiffiny Kathleen, was received with open arms. Then on May 7, 1979, Rex and Kathy were blessed with another bundle of joy when they received their son, Trenton Rex. A bouncing baby boy brought the family many hours of happiness and joy.
Kathy went to beauty school and worked as a hairdresser at the Bon Marche in Ogden, Utah before they met.
Rex worked at Hill Air Force Base and provided for the family, while Kathy was a devoted housewife and mother. In 1987, Rex and Kathy were sealed for time and all eternity in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Salt Lake Temple. All three children were sealed to them at that time.
Rex retired from Hill Air Force Base in April 2004 and went to work managing AA Access Storage facility in West Haven. The name was alter changed to Storage City, but everything else remained the same. Rex and Kathy enjoyed managing the facility for 18 years and met a lot of fine people and made a lot of good friends. Kathy started developing symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease and they had to leave the facility.
Rex and Kathy started taking dance lessons in 1989, and had a lot of fun on the dance floor. It was so much fun for them that they started teaching dance lessons in 1990. They met a lot of people on the dance floor and made a lot of lifetime friends. The Western Dancing, they taught included the Two-Step, Swing, Waltz, Cha Cha, and several Line dances and Round Dances.
Now is the time to thank all of our friends and family for the care and consideration they have shown for the care of Kathy. It’s good for you all to know that it didn’t go unnoticed, and for you to know as well it was greatly appreciated. Kathy has returned to her Father in Heaven, which is a better place to be. No more pain, suffering and discomfort. She had a wonderful time here on earth with Rex, and her friends and family, but it’s time to go back home. She’ll then board the craft that will take her back home on Saturday, September 23, 2023, after a short gathering of friends and family, for a final hug, kiss and final goodbye and good luck and wishes from 10 to 11 a.m. when the family will come together for a family prayer and close the final window of her life. Then we’ll go up to Lindquist’s Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch, 1718 Combe Road, South Ogden, where her final remains will be until we gather again at the greet calling of Jesus Christ.
Good Luck, Honey, our love and prayers will go with you and stay with you for time and all eternity, until we meet again to celebrate the new world. Your love and caring for me will stay in my heart and mind until the happy day arrives. I will always be your one true love.
