and friends. Mimi was a member of Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church where she was
active in various church ministries. She was a graduate of the University of Georgia where
she was a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority. On August 31, 1974 she married Hamp Hunter

found themselves moving from Atlanta, GA to Nashville, TN to Dallas, TX and to Greensboro,
SC. They are now blessed with two beautiful daughters and their wonderful husbands and two
precious grandkids. During her year long illness with cancer, Mimi was always filled with faith
and always maintained her kind, sweet and positive attitude. In addition to her parents she is
predeceased by her sweet sister in law, Diane Woosley, who was more like a sister and even
shared the same birthday.
