Alma Lucille Hunnicutt

August 23, 1922 - May 6, 2023

      Alma Lucille “Lucy” Boren Hunnicutt, of Decherd, passed May 6, 2023. She was 100 years and 9 months. She was born August 23, 1922 in the Capitol Hill Community.  Lucille graduated from Franklin County High School in 1941. She worked at the Farmer’s Home Administration, Patton’s Clothing Company and Camp Forrest.  While at Camp Forrest, she met her husband, Edward Hunnicutt. They were married sixty-six days after their first date and were married for 70 years. Lucille served her community as a member of the Capitol Hill Home Demonstration Club, Capitol Hill Elementary School, the Franklin County Beautification club, and was a fundraiser for the Capitol Hill Community Center.  Lucille was a devoted and faithful member of the Capitol Hill and Winchester Churches of Christ. In addition to her family, community, church, she loved to cook for her family and anyone else who would stop by the house at dinnertime! Her generosity and hospitality were her trademarks. Her meatloaf dinner, peach cobbler, and homemade ice cream are famous among family and friends. She was a lifelong learner and avid reader of novels, nonfiction and most importantly the Bible. She also loved to plant flower gardens and was very talented at arranging flowers. As she had more time, she especially loved watching all the sports of the Tennessee Vols and the Atlanta Braves. But most of all, Lucille loved holding hands and kissing her (who she called her boyfriend)... Edward! They were the picture of “true love.”  Lucille was preceded in death by her husband, Edward Lee Hunnicutt, Sr., her parents: Thomas Clay Boren and Thelma Starnes Boren, one brother: Chester, a son: George Thomas (Tommy) Hunnicutt, granddaughter: Sheri Stokes, and great-grandson Todd A. Stokes, Jr.  Lucille is survived by one son: Edward Lee Hunnicutt, Jr.(Linda), three daughters: Sandra (Mike) Roggli, Deborah (John) Gravlee, Sheila (Gary) Crump, and one sister-in-law: EllaFair Mathis. Mam-maw was loved by her thirteen grandchildren: Steve Hunnicutt, Karen (Kent) Bowen, Michael (Julie) Roggli, Tim (Anna) Roggli, Leigh Ann (Todd) Cyphers, Chris (Shelia) Gravlee, Ashlee Gravlee, Lauren (John) McCray, Andrew (Zoe) Geisenhoffer, Cameron Hunnicutt, Ethan Hunnicutt, Stacey (Chad) Horner and Stuart Keele, and her eleven great-grandchildren: Jacob Hunnicutt, Marlena Stokes, Stuart & Abbigail Roggli, Garrett & Corbin Cyphers, Elizabeth & Emma Roggli, Serena Gravlee, Kal Bowden, Brook (Robby) Ragan, & Braden Pickerel.  The family would like to thank Lucy’s caretakers: Barbara Cable and Jane Farmer for all the special and loving care they gave our Mom.

The Memory Wall

Bill Wallace 

Have known Lucille and Ed Hunnicutt and family since 1965. Count them as one of the finest families I’ve ever known. Have been good friends for all these years and considered them family. They encouraged me as a fledgling preacher and we kept contact over the years and miles. My great love and sympathy for her family. Sorry I cannot be there to share In memories and her great memorial service. A great woman of God has joined the heavenly family. Bill Wallace
