Oh how happy her parents Willie and Pearl Hunter were on August 9, 1970, to add a new bundle of joy to their family. A bouncy baby girl they named her Sharon Lynette Hunter. Sharon brought so much joy into their lives and to all the lives of all who knew her. She attended Hamlin ISD from Primary through High School where she graduated in 1988. While in Hamlin High school she was a proud member of the marching Green band. Sharon loved band competition. After graduation she moved to Big Spring and attended Howard College where she obtained her Cosmetology License. Sharon lived in Arizona where she worked at La Petite Academy and Abilene where she worked at Day Nursery of Abilene, but always would return back to Hamlin- home; There’s No Place like Home” Sharon was a Pied Piper Football Fan and enjoyed following the team. Although she never had children of her own she loved them and was honored to be affectionately called “MOM” by Octavia McGee. She raised Octavia and her brothers Kyson and JaCalvin McGee. She also helped her mother Pearl to raise Dawntavia Ghant. Sharon was the first and only 13 year old to compete in Progressive West Texas Baptist Congress in the Young Adult Speakers Tournament (17 to 25) her topic “Don’t Judge Me Accept Me” She spoke with confidence and assurance and convection. She could still quote that talk to this day. Although they couldn’t let her win and compete at the State Competition, she clearly was the winner! Sharon enjoyed laughing, joking, cooking, having fun and BINGO! Even on her worse days she would always say something to make you laugh and feel better. She was an encourager. She was not a complainer-”IT IS WHAT IT IS” She was on dialysis 15 1/2 years. Sharon was diagnosed with heart disease and only given a 5 year life expectancy by doctors, BUT GOD blessed her with over 20 years to grow and bless the lives of others. Sharon had a number of other health issues, but she never let it keep her down, “keep moving is what she’d say. I’ve got stuff to do.” On any given day you could put a smile on her face with her favorite ground beef and cheese burrito from LaPopular on Pine and a coke cola please. She loved her babies, her dad, her sisters and brother and those nieces and nephews and family, the simple things in life. Sharon had no problem speaking her mind and letting you know exactly how she felt! “HUH” So she would say “don’t be crying for me I’ve done all I could and now I can rest. Do something crazy, fun and SMILE as you think of me! I love you all... NET aka “KIM”
