Marsha was born on February 8, 1950 to Herbert Jerome Hunt Sr. and Lilly Marie Lohnes in Devils Lake ND. They moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1962. She attended Vocational High School where she met the love of her life Lee English. They were married in 1968 and raised four children in North Minneapolis. Marsha and Lee were married for 49 years until Lee’s passing in 2017.

Marsha worked in the folding carton industry as a machine operator for 35 years until she retired.

Marsha and Lee always looked forward to taking their family on vacation to North Dakota and Red Lake to visit all the family. They loved visiting, having a few, with a lot of laughs and great memories.

Marsha was a hard worker all of her life. When you were around her, you were a hard worker too. Marsha was honest to a fault, but always meant well. She just wanted the best for everyone. Marsha was very loving, cared so much and would do anything for her children and grandchildren.

She loved watching documentaries on true crime. Her favorites were “Unsolved Mysteries” and “Life Below Zero.” She liked doing crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, taking care of her plants and going shopping.

Marsha is survived by her son Nick English; daughters Tasha (Stash) Hanks and Tina English; grandchildren Lynsey (Andre), Sheldon, Skylar, Sophia, Carlos, and Baby Lee English; great grandchildren Alexis, AJ, Leeyah, Bezh; sisters Myra Hunt and Cheryl Hunt; brother Herbert Hunt Jr.; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and their families.
