Lenox — Miss Laurie Jean Hunter, 25, formerly of Lenox, died yesterday at her apartment at 302 Forest Hill Ave., Richmond, Va, of apparent natural causes.

Born in Springfield, she was the daughter of Robert R. and Jean Roberts Hunter of 234 Stockbridge Road. She came to Lenox as a young girl.

She was a medical librarian at Medical College of Virginia, which is part of the Virginia Commonwealth University.

Miss Hunter was valedictorian of the class of 1969 at Miss Hall’s School, a magna cum laude graduate of Carleton College in Northfield, Minn. in 1973, and received a master of science degree in 1975 from the University of North Carolina.

Besides her parents, she is survived by three brothers, Robert R. Hunter Jr., a student at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Jeffrey A. Hunter, a student at the University of Delaware, and Gregory S. Hunter with the U.S. Army at Fort Knox, Ky., and her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Roberts of Northwood, N.H. and Boynton Beach, Fla.

Funeral Services will be at the Church-on-the-Hill here with Burial at Northwood Cemetery in Northwood, N.H. at a date to be announced. The Roche Funeral Home in Lenox is in charge.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations in her memory be made to the scholarship fund of the Berkshire Athenaeum.

    I knew Laurie freshman year. I have thought of her often over the years and am sorry I didn't get to know her better at Carleton.

    I remember having dinner with Laurie many times in Goodhue during sophomore year. She was easy to talk with, very welcoming -- and an extremely diligent student. In particular, I was amazed at her dedication, working over papers for classes, fully caught up in the subject for days on end it seemed. At the same time, she had a warm sense of humor. I, too, wish I had gotten to know her better, especially because she was one of the first to pass away from our class. She was a classmate I would have looked forward to seeing again at reunion.
