Mamie Nell Gunter

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.

    I am so sorry about Mamie’s death. She has been my friend since we were in the 4th grade. A small group of us girls in the class of ’53 Carlisle were very close; ate out together often to keep tract of each others lives. My thoughts are with the family members during this sad time.

    We are so very sorry to hear about Mrs. Gunter’s passing. We’ve been friends with Melissia since 1982, but only got to visit with Mrs. Gunter on a couple of occasions, yet thoroughly enjoyed her sweet personality. Our hearts and prayers are with the entire Gunter family. May God provide peace and comfort to all family members during this difficult time. All our heartfelt love and prayers.

    We extend our sympathy and prayers to the Gunter family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance.

    Aunt Mamie was a beautiful person inside and out. She loved her Lord, her husband, and her family. She was a wonderful aunt and I have wonderful loving memories of her. I look forward to seeing her again one day where there will be no more goodbyes. Prayers for Melissia, Verl, and the grandchildren.

    Ms. Mamie was a very special lady and meant many things to many people. She will be missed . My Mom was glad to have her familiar face with her at Chambers. Prayers of comfort for the family.

  6. I have so many great memories of Mamie. Although she is my aunt, we were very close in age of just two years. She was my go to place for vacation every summer when I was a child. We finally moved from the country to Carlisle when I was a sophomore in high school. It was a lovely service today, and I,like you, can not be sorry she has gone to be with the Lord. I know you all will miss her but like you said, Verl, no more pain. My love and peace to you Verl and Melissa
