October 13, 1956 - November 22, 2021
HUNT-GIBSON, ANNEMARIE Age 65, passed away on November 22, 2021 at her home in Sterling Heights, MI, after a 22 year battle with breast cancer. Annemarie never allowed the disease to control her life, instead, always remained committed to living life to its fullest—her strength and resilience knew no bounds. Annemarie was born on October 13, 1956 to Homer and Eileen (nee Gignac) Hunt in Grosse Pointe, MI. She was a sister to six beloved siblings: Kirk (Joanne), Sheila, Al (Janice), Keith (Kathy), John (Echo), and Celeste (Werner). She met the love of her life and husband of over 40 years, Fred, while both were Michigan State Troopers assigned to the Bay City Post. It was love at first sight for both. The couple had three children—Gabrielle (partner Kent), Garrett (wife Gabby), Jordyn (husband Kevin), and stepson Jason. It was no secret the true loves of her life were her grandsons—Hudson, Landon, and Grayson, who affectionately called her “Gigi.” Annemarie spent over 31 years with the Michigan State Police, retiring as a Captain/Commanding Officer of the Criminal Investigation Division for SE Michigan—the Division's first female commander. During that time Annemarie also graduated from the prestigious FBI National Academy. Upon retirement, the Detroit News said it best, “Trailblazing State Cop Retires.” Not being one to sit around, retirement was short lived. Annemarie went on to work as Deputy Inspector General for the Detroit Public Schools and later, as Manager of Corporate Investigations for DTE Energy. In what little spare time she had, you could find Annemarie doing what she did best and enjoyed most: shopping for home décor, transforming her house for every holiday, and ensuring her yard was always an outdoor oasis. Her family is confident she kept several stores in business throughout the years. Annemarie's love and light will never be replaced, but instead carried on through her husband, children, grandchildren, and all of those fortunate enough to have known her. "To the world Annemarie was one person, but to her family and loved ones, she was the world." A celebration of Annemarie's life will take place at Wujek-Calcaterra & Sons, Inc. 54880 Van Dyke (Shelby Township) on Friday, December 3, 2021. Memorial visitation will be held from 5:00pm to 9:00pm with Sharing of Memories at 7:00pm. Flowers may be sent to the funeral home or donations can be made to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute—in memory of Annemarie (www.Karmanos.org/giftofhope).
