Corene Branson Hunt

Corene Branson Hunt was called home to be with the Lord on July 18, 2022.  She was predeceased by her husband, Don; sons, David and Douglas, grandson, Eddie; brothers, Sherman and Alvin; and sisters, Bonnie, Earlene, and Gaynell.

Corene is survived by daughters, Donna Allison and Dee Dee Hunt; grandson, William; and great grandsons, Caleb, Brooks, and Bryson.

A letter found after her death written years ago says, “To those I love and have loved me. When I am gone, release me, let me go.  I have so many things to see and do.  You must not tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you gave me happiness. I thank you for the love you have shown. But now it’s time I traveled on alone. So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for awhile that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I won’t be far away, for life goes on. So if you need, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near. And if you listen with your heart I’ll be there. All my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and say Welcome Home! All my love, Mama. Peace at last.”

A visitation will be held at Cannon-Byrd Funeral Home on Friday, July 22, 2022, at 1:00 pm.  A Funeral Service will follow in the chapel beginning at 2:00 pm.  Burial will be at Greenville Memorial Gardens.

    Dee Dee,

    I am so deeply saddened to hear about your mother I know how much you loved her and adored her. There’s no doubt that this woman is in heaven and now she was reunited with her husband and your brothers so therefore she’s left you on earth to carry on her legacy. May the Lord comfort you and hold you deep to his heart for the days to come know that she is no longer suffering and she has a new body now.

    I love you my friend if you need anything from me or the family please reach out to me 864-275-5439
