Carol Lois Hunter, 73, of Knox City passed away Tuesday, June 25 surrounded by her loving family. She was born Nov. 9, 1945 in Tucson, AZ to William and Johnnie Holder. She and Johnny Hunter were married Sept. 26, 1997 in Lubbock.
Carol retired from PCCA in 2003 after 38 years. She wrote the program and her name is on the patent for the electronic transfer of bales of cotton.
Carol was the matriarch of the family and wore many hats, including friend, adviser, mentor and caretaker. She hosted countless family gatherings and celebrations. She loved fiercely and unconditionally and made her daughters-in-law feel like daughters. She doted and bragged on each and every child and grandchild and her greatest pride came in their many accomplishments. She loved her friends, shopping in QVC and knew the value of good “old fashioned” face-to-face visits. Her heart belonged to God and her faith was endless.
She was preceded in death by her father W.T Holder, her mother Johnnie Brown, her step-fathers B.W. Tartt and W.A. Brown, her brother Larry Holder and her sister Charlotte Sageser.
Carol is survived by her husband Johnny Hunter; children Mike Shipman and wife Jenni, Mark Shipman, Sam Hunter and wife Andrea and Tony Hunter and wife Kendra; nine grandchildren; brother Garry Holder and wife Rita; sisters-in-law Karen Holder and Judy Hunter; and a host of family and friends.
Services were held Saturday at the First Methodist Church in Munday with Shannon Waters officiating. Arrangements were handled by McCauley-Smith Funeral Home.
