Pence, Clauzell Lee (Hunt)

Clauzell Lee (Hunt) Pence, the sole surviving child of Harrison and Lula Hunt, born September 4, 1908 in a log cabin on the Hunt farm, Dutch Creek community, 8 miles west of Danville, AR. She departed this life September 2, 2003 at Mitchell s Nursing Home in Danville, two days short of her ninety-fifth year. As a young lady, she was not only adored by her parents, but as a teenager, she had the distinction of being chosen the prettiest girl at the Yell County fair, an honor for which she did not even realize she was being considered. For this honor, she received the coveted 2.00 prize, a nice prize in those early days. After attending Shark School on Dutch Creek, she was married to Gilbert Sylvester Pence, October 3, 1926 in Danville, Yell County, AR. After an early life together in both Arkansas and Oklahoma, the couple established a permanent residence in Norman, OK, where they lived until returning to Danville in 1970, where her husband preceded her in death February 2, 1972.

She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend, giving birth to nine children seven boys and two girls, Zelma June and Billie Joan, both now deceased. She was a devoted Christian, having been baptized into Christ in July of 1940. She loved to work with her hands much of which was done for others. She could crochet, tat, sew and especially quilt. As a result of her love for handiwork and others, over the years, she created scores of quilts, giving them to family members, friends and orphans (between 1976 and 1989, she made and sent at least 46 to Southern Children's Home in Morrilton, AR). She also did a good deal of quilting by commission. She was a faithful member of the Danville Church of Christ. In her last years, however, ill health prevented her attending services.

Survivors include seven sons, Gerald Lloyd of Noble, OK, Merrill Theo, Kenneth Wayne, Travis Vaughn and Wyatt Hunt all of Danville, AR, Leslie Maurice of Kissimee, FL and Philip Bryan of Las Vegas, NV and 27 grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

Service was September 6, 2003 at the Danville Church of Christ with Merrill Thomas Pence officiating. Interment was September 8, 2003 at Sunset Memorial Park in Norman, OK by Cornwell Funeral Home of Danville, AR.
