Obituary Condolences

Marjorie (Hood) Kunberger Marjorie (Hood) Kunberger passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, Bradenton, FL. She was born on Nov. 15, 1923, in Cook County, IL, to Sam and Irene Lafferty. Marge grew up in Kenilworth, IL, and graduated from New Trier High School. She met her husband, Harry M. Hood Jr. on a blind date, and married secretly in 1943 during Harry's service in the Navy. After Harry's death in 1974, Marge married Harry Kunberger from Inverness, IL in 1980. Both the Hood and Kunberger families were blessed to have such a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother in their lives. All who knew Marge described her as kind, gentle, caring, intelligent, giving, cool - instantly likable. She discovered her talent as a painter, was curious and opinionated (yet always polite) and loved dining, shopping and "surfing the web." Marge is survived by one sister, Clella Daetwyler (Bob); six children, Harry M. Hood III, Tom Hood (Susan), Richard Hood (Cindi), Donna Spear (Stuart), Sue Andrews and Dave Hood (Jan); five stepchildren, Lynn Maher (Ray), Jim Kunberger (Jane), Chip Kunberger (Betsy), Beth Dowsett (Dale) and Bill Kunberger (Lane); 12 grandchildren, Jen Sleece (Scott), Nichole Wilson (Tim), David Spear (Heather), Laura Spear, Braxton Hood, Kim Hedges (Alex), Richard Hood, Jeffrey Hood, Brandon Hood, Dan Hood, Shannon Hood and Tom Hood; seven great-grandchildren, Gavin, Lyla and Sadie Spear, Sara Wilson, Lily Hedges, and Hannah and Eric Sleece; 10 stepgrandchildren, Jeff Kunberger (Tanya), Jason Kunberger, Chris Maher (Katy), Kelly Maher, Laura Kunberger, Mark Kunberger, Lee Dowsett, Willie Dowsett, Katie Kunberger and Kyle Kunberger; and two great-stepgrandchildren, Alex and Anna Kunberger. She was preceded in death by her grandson, David Hood.
