Myrtle was born in Scotland, NC, one of 16 children, to the late Sherman and Mable Lowery Hunt. She worked for many years as a seamstress in the textile industry but her work raising her family was most important to her. She will be remembered as a loving woman who spoke kind and understanding words and was generous with all that she had. She enjoyed listening to music, working puzzle books and most of all spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Trips to the beach were always the highlight of time spent together. She was a great cook, loved flowers and kept up with all goings on through social media. A light from the household may be gone but her family will remember her as a woman of great faith who leaves a legacy of working hard for what you achieve, keeping the family together and giving to others.
Myrtle is missed and survived by her children, Tonia Oxendine and fiancé, Ronald Brown, Lisa Jacobs and spouse Michael, Benny Locklear Jr. and fiancé, Antonio Griffin, and Derek Locklear, all of Raeford; grandchildren, Johnny and Joshua Jones, Talisha Brown, Michael, Nicholas and Selina Jacobs, and Shania, Della, Daylin, Delson and London Locklear; brothers and their spouses, Leon and Marty Hunt, Homer and Faye Hunt, Thomas and Linda Hunt, Eugene and Lynn Hunt and Alton and Judy Hunt; sisters and their spouses, Naomi and Gerald Locklear and Candice and Kenny Hardy; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by 8 siblings.
The family would like to thank the staff of Raeford Davita Dialysis Center for their care and making Myrtle feel so special during her visits. Floral tributes are welcome or memorial contributions may be made to Benny Locklear Jr., POB 1293, Raeford, NC 28376. Online condolences may be made to www.haneslineberryfuneralhomes.com.
