Mamie Nell Gunter, 86, of Hazen, was born September 11, 1934 in Lonoke, Arkansas to the late Geedie L. and Madie Duke Lenderman. Mamie passed into eternal glory on November 7, 2020. She was preceded in death by her high school sweetheart and husband, Leon in 2011.
For several years, Mamie worked at the Lily crop duster plant in Carlisle, building fiberglass wings and fuselages for the yellow crop dusters. She worked her way up from seamstress to manager at the Kellwood clothing plant in Lonoke before coming home to the farm north of Hazen. As was her nature, she later chose to care for others as a CNA for Carelink.
She loved working in the yard, designing her flower beds, landscaping, decorating, and always changing things around. She never met a plant she couldn’t grow or a room that she couldn’t redecorate. She loved her pets, her family and friends and a good laugh. A friend to all, she especially loved her grandkids and great-grandkids.
Mamie will be remembered by her daughter, Melissia N. Gunter of Greenbrier, Ar. And son, Verl R. Gunter of Midland, Texas; grandsons, Clay, Seth, and Josh Gunter; eight great grandchildren, Cade, Cole, Gage, Halle, Lane, Austin, Addie and Mason all of Midland, Texas, and a host of friends and family.
Funeral services will be held 2:00 P.M., Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Calvary Baptist Church in Hazen, Arkansas. Visitation will be at 1:00 P.M. prior to the service. Burial will be in the Hazen Cemetery.
