Dorothy was born March 6, 1934 in Clarksville to Victoria Nunley & Alta Mae Humphrey. She married her first husband, the late Lee Dale Gilbert in 1946 and to this union 12 children were born. She married her second husband, the late Delbert Hunter in 1979. She loved sewing, fishing, hunting, cooking and enjoyed spending time with her family & grandchildren. Above all, Dorothy loved serving the Lord; her faith transcended through her personality making her the Godly woman the bible speaks of in Proverbs 31, “charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” She will be missed, but her memory will forever live on in the hearts of all who knew her well.
