Dorothy Lou was born on June 10, 1939, in Trout to the late Samuel and Dessie (Lewis) Sizemore.
She married Glen Hunter in 1958 and was the mother of six children. She worked tirelessly as a homemaker and dedicated her life to serving as the pillar of her family. She was a lifelong member of Trout Baptist Church and a talented song writer and an a cappella singer filling many surrounding churches with her beautiful voice.
“A stranger is only a friend you haven’t met.” – words she often shared and lived by. She gave honest advice, was quick witted, but greatest of all, she loved unconditionally. She enjoyed a well kept house, gardening, playing Yahtzee, working puzzles, decorating for every holiday, and hosting crowded family get togethers. Cooking “enough food to feed Cox’s army,” as she would say, was one of her many talents. At Dorothy’s table, everyone was welcome and there was always room for anyone needing a meal.
In addition to her parents and infant daughter, Donna Gay, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Ray, Dale and Don Sizemore; two sisters, Naomi and Lottie; and daughter-in-law, Charlette Hunter.
She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Glen; daughter, Terrie (Barry) Grimmett of White Sulphur Springs; son, Michael (Pam) Hunter of Crawley, and son, David (Kathy) Hunter of Cornstalk; daughter, Teresa (Ronnie) Shuck of Danese, and daughter, Tonia Hunter (Wanda Seal) of Crawley. She also leaves behind seven granddaughters, Stephanie Worley of Bluffton, SC, Brittany Radford of White Sulphur Springs, Erica Whitt, April Herndon, and Ashley Butler, all of Crawley, Amanda Cannon of Cornstalk, and LaTasha Owens of Frankford; and 16 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by half-brothers, James and William “Tucker” Sizemore, Hugh “Jumbo,” Randy and Jerry Baldwin; and half-sisters, Lesa Fitzgerald, Delta Thomas and Jenny Sizemore.
A funeral service was held Wednesday, June 23, at Wallace & Wallace Funeral Home in Lewisburg. Visitors were received before the service. A private burial followed at home at the family’s private cemetery.
