Sue Alice Hunter – Bedford
September 28, 1926 – July 25, 2017
The Hunter family grieves the loss of Sue Alice (Thomas) Hunter, 90 years of age.
Sue was born to parents, Ralph and Jessie (Williams) Thomas. She was raised alongside six brothers and sisters in the Pinhook area and graduated in 1944 from Shawswick High School.
In 1947, she married Wilmer C. Hunter and moved to the Mundell community. Together they raised seven children while also caring for Wilmer’s aging mother, Ida and brother, Winton. Their home was a busy place, but the door was always open to visitors. Sue was a great country cook, often feeding twenty or more on Sundays. As a member of the North Bedford Church of Christ, she was an encouraging example to young wives and mothers.
Sue was active in her community as well. She was longtime treasurer of the Flatwood Neighbors Club and a charter member. She was the classroom “Grandma” to Mrs. Carolyn Tincher’s first graders at Heltonville Elementary for many years.
She will be greatly missed by her children, Walter (Cindy) Hunter, Tom, Sudie, and Keith Hunter, of Heltonville, Don (Marilyn) Hunter, and Dwight (Ramona) Hunter, of Bedford, and Kevin (Mary) Hunter, of Bloomington. Also surviving are many grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; one brother, Dale (Norma) Thomas; and two sisters, Jane (Don) Turpen, and Nancy (Tom) Fletcher.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Wilmer C. Hunter; brothers, Don Thomas and Harry Lee Thomas; one sister, Betty Ooley; one daughter-in-law, Sue Ellen Hunter; and two grandsons, Billy Hunter and Howard Dwight Hunter.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at the Ferguson-Lee Chapel of Thorne-George Family Funeral Homes, with Brother Walter Hunter officiating. Burial will follow in Mundell Cemetery. Visitation will be Friday, 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the funeral chapel.
