Dorothy Lee Hunter

Dorothy Lee (Lewis) Hunter Age 79 of Vanceburg, KY, was called home by the Lord, on Friday, November 9, 2018.  Her most recent home had been in Circleville, OH at the home of her son, Rusty.  Affectionately known as Dottie or Dot, she was born on October 21, 1939 to Elmer Dale Lewis and Nannie Belle Ratliff Lewis.

Dottie has been reunited in heaven with her husband, Howard David Hunter, who passed away July 11, 1981.  In addition to Dave and her parents, she was preceded in death by one brother, Elmer “Buddy” Lewis and three sisters, Hazel Faulkner, Carla Lewis and Helen Ruark.

Her greatest joy in life were her four boys! She loved to recall all the things that boys do and how much she loved being their mom.  She was a fiercely loyal and loving.   She is survived by Jeffrey A. Hunter of Portsmouth, Brian & Crystal Hunter of West Portsmouth, Rusty & Lisa Hunter of Circleville, and Kelly & Cathy Hunter of Sciotoville; one sister, Loreen Free of Hebron, KY; seven grandsons, 6 step-granddaughters, and a host of great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.

Dottie was a member of the Vanceburg Christian Church and Vanceburg Historical Society.  She enjoyed making “corn cuddlers” to keep us all warm and soothe our aches away.  She declared her affection through poetry and was an avid reader of the Bible. Word puzzles were never in short supply around Mama Dot. And at the last, she was serenaded home by Bluegrass and Gospel music, her favorites.

Friends may call Monday from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and one hour prior to the services on Tuesday at the funeral home.  Interment will follow at Memorial Burial Park.  Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be left at
