Mrs. Lucy Mae Hunter LeGrande 96, was born in Dalark Arkansas February 6, 1926 to the late Joe and Estella Hunter. Lucy transitioned from labor to reward on Friday March 25, 2022 resting peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones.

Lucy accepted Christ at an early age. She attended First Baptist Rockport church for many many years serving on the Usher Board.

Lucy loved to care for others before caring for herself. She spent many of her years as a housemaid, caregiver and a nurse(LPN). She loved raising her children, the neighborhood children, grand children and many many more children in her lifetime. Her heart was pure as GOLD and would give the shirt off her back. She loved everyone she met and never met a stranger.

Lucy was preceded in death by her husband Joyce LeGrande, 4 brothers and 5 sisters, one great grandson Keith Joyce and a great great granddaughter Laioni Davis.

Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me”.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we’re together again.
