Maggie Nell Hunter was born June 6, 1959 in Tuscola, Mississippi in Leake County to the late Dewitt Robertson and the late Alice Ruth Brisker Robertson.
Maggie was 8 years old when her parents moved to Indianapolis, Indiana. She attended School 12 and Wood High School on the Southside of Indianapolis.
Maggie professed her faith at an early age. She became a member of Christway Missionary Baptist Church, Pastor Ray Hudson. As an adult, Maggie later became a member of Refuge Temple Revival Center under the leadership of District Elder Paul C. Otis where she was baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost in April of 1982. Maggie received her Missionary license July 30, 1986 from Pastor Otis at Refuge Temple where she served. She was ordained October 8, 1997 to preach the Gospel of Christ under Bishop Tidwell, Temple of God in Gary Indiana.
Maggie married her companion, as she fondly referred to him, Elder Charles Hunter June 23, 1984 at Refuge Temple where they both served faithfully. Maggie later left Refuge Temple in August of 1991with her companion, when he accepted his calling to start a new church; Church of Jesus Apostolic Church. They started the new church in their basement then moved to their current location at 2611 W Annette St. Maggie served with her husband until her death. They traveled preaching and teaching the word of God. Maggie actively taught, preached and counseled alongside her husband. Maggie was a beloved preacher, teacher and first lady. Maggie had a newsletter that she sent out monthly to sisters near and far in a hope to provide encouragement, direction and clarity. Maggie was a praying and fasting Woman of God. She embodied praying without ceasing. Her voice was like a trumpet, full of urgency and anointing. Probably from many long nights of crying out before God for her family and loved ones. The anointing was always heavy on her whether speaking, singing or preaching. She loved God above everything and witnessed of his goodness every time you spoke to her. She loved her husband, children and grandchildren. She spoke of her grandbabies often with love and hope. Maggie was a people person and seldom met a stranger. Both saved and unsaved; stranger and friends would call her to pray for them at any given time. Maggie was born under the sign of Gemini and had two sides. One was Sis Maggie and the other Mother Hunter. One was laid back, sweet kind and empathetic to all she talked to. The other was strict and swift with rebuke if you seems not to hear her many warning concerning your soul. She would cut you then mend you back together before hanging up. Maggie was a great storyteller.
Maggie worked for a short time as a CNA at Northwest Manor Nursing Home. She later decided to stop working to raise her younger sister after the death of their mother.
Maggie departed this life December 4, 2020 Friday evening.
