She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, meme, and great-grandmother. Sherry was born May 7, 1934 in Lawton, Oklahoma to Lee and Eula Hunter and was raised in a loving home with her brother, Howard and sister, Sandy. Sherry graduated from Lawton High School and Camron University, where she obtained an associate’s degree, in Lawton, Ok. She met the love of her life, Archie Hunter, while he was stationed at Fort Still, OK. They were married on February 25, 1956 in Lawton.
Shortly after being married Sherry and Archie moved to Texas and then settled in his hometown of Roscoe. She was an active member of the Roscoe First Baptist Church and the community. She greatly enjoyed sharing her ‘plain ole stories’ with everyone she met, especially her family. Countless people enjoyed the harvest from their garden and she gave endlessly to people in need, friends, neighbors, and was known as a “good cooker”. She was a fan of the Plowboys, and spent thousands of hours traveling with Archie to support students and their activities, even long after their own children had graduated. She worked for the Roscoe, Snyder, and Pacific Railroad, and the Nolan County Farm Bureau for most of her professional career.
Following Archie’s death in 2011, she moved to Stephenville to be closer to her family. She will be missed greatly in our hearts, but remembered with joy by those that had the fortune to meet her. She is survived by her daughter, Dr. Sandy Graham and husband Hal of Stephenville; sons, Art Hunter and wife Netia of Crawford, and Dan Hunter and wife Nancy of Austin; sister, Sandy Lair and husband John of Lakeview, AR; sisters-in-law, Alma Hunter, Geet Hunter, Audrey Hunter, Mae Hunter, and Sue Sanford; grandchildren, Ashley Van Winkle and husband Anthony of Krum, Alexis Lyn Hunter of Washington, DC, Addison Hunter and wife Vicki of Stephenville; great-grandchildren, Arlie Van Winkle, Liam Hunter; and numerous nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Howard; son-in-law, Johnny Johnson; and her husband, Archie.
