Jamie Nicole Hunter

It is with sad and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter Jamie Nicole Hunter, on March 20, 2017 at the age of 30 years. Jamie had a heart of gold and an infectious smile.

6 Condolences for “HUNTER, Jamie Nicole 1986 – 2017”


  • “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
    The words above were essentially the one I often used to encourage you… And now… the word ‘apart’ above takes on a whole new level.
    It was love at first sight when we connected in our birth father’s death years ago. Remember, in my whole life, I have only held a few jobs in all of Lethbridge. Wasn’t it crazy how we first met while you were on shift at the exact same job I had when I was younger, at the same small hotel desk and for the same owners?!! Not only did we share the same fathers’ genes, we obviously shared some personality attributes. In many ways, I am a much older version of you, … Really, part of me died with you, while at the same time, part of you stayed alive in me.
    To your honour, Jamie, you had a huge easy WARM SMILE, you seriously ROCKED any front desk RECEPTION job you had. You had this RARE SWEETNESS about you, it was one of my favourite things about you, that, and your VIBRANCE. Oh, and how you LOVED COFFEE! LOL. You even figured out that you needed 10 cups of decaf to really get your one.
    Under your sweetness and brilliant smiling shell, you battled almost every demon inside. I too battle some of those same demons. I understood so much of you, even though we did not grow up together.
    I shared with you, that without Christ Jesus our Saviour, we can’t beat those demons on our own. Oh, how I prayed and hoped you would believe in yourself and God, that you’d accept you were enough, as you were, to claim your birthright alongside me as redeemed daughters to the perfect King that takes complete care of his precious princesses.
    Jamie, your hurting is over now, especially that deep hole your beloved dad (step) left in you when he suddenly died. But, no more pain for you now, that gives me much peace. I loved on you in good and tough moments, because I wanted to, you were valuable, you mattered. I truly loved you. I am and will always be proud to say, “Jamie Hunter was my sister”. I was in you and you are in me. Even though we are now truly ‘apart’, we really will, always be together… – Love your sister, Samantha.

  • With a saddened heart, thoughts go out to family and friends of Jamie as she was a young life that was taken from this world way to soon. One that had so much meaning to herself and to others. She will be greatly missed.

  • Jamie, you truly had the heart of gold and tried so hard to have a positive outlook on life no matter what hardships you endured. Your smile was truly infectious and I will always miss it. I wake up every single night at 2am calling out for you since you left. I know you’re not gone and that you are still with me but I just feel so empty right now. I know you’ve finally found your peace and you’re no longer hurting or struggling. I’ll never forget how close we were and how you told me that I was your rock. I’ll also never forget sitting on my couch brushing your beautiful long hair delicately brushing the knots out and telling you how beautiful you truly are. We’ve had our ups and down just like sisters do, but even through your troubles you were an angel in my eyes and still are! Rest in peace baby sister. Look over us always and help the “turkeys” through their struggles and help me guide them to excellence! I love you to the moon and back my sweets. Until we meet again, “see ya later” as Rob would say!

  • Jamie,
    So I heard a rumour, didn’t think it was true… I googled your name…. Years have passed, but I think of you and Tammy often. I remember the sleepovers we used to have. And staying up all hours of the night watching movies. I remember traveling together to Calgary, we were both going to have our hearts checked, funny how something like that can create a bond. I don’t know of your struggles, but I know they were very real. I will always remember your smile and your gorgeous eyes!! You were so beautiful inside and out. I hope you have found peace and I pray that one day we will meet again. I pray that your mom and Tammy are the best that they can be. I will miss you…
