Delois’s Life Story….

Delois Hunte Carr was born in Arkadelphia, AR on May 3, 1946, to the late Joe S. Hunter and Eather Mae Williams Hunter. As a child, she attended Williams School and graduated from Peake High School in Arkadelphia. She chose to further her education and became a graduate of Henderson State University in Arkadelphia where she received a bachelor’s degree in accounting.

Delois was now ready to start her life’s journey. She moved to Detroit, MI where she lived with her aunt and uncle, Irene, and Henry Garland. She established her career with DTE Gas Company and retired after 25 years of dedicated service. The love of her life, Nick Carr, Jr., whom she met while back in Arkansas soon moved to Michigan, and they were married. They chose to move back to Arkansas and Delois became a member of Piney Grove A.M.E. church in Arkadelphia and joined the Zenobia Jones Missionary Society. Nick and Delois shared in many years of wedded bliss until God called him home.

Delois's favorite pastime was to read. She also enjoyed spending time with her loveable dog, Max. On Monday, March 1, 2021, the Lord called Delois home to rest. She was preceded in death by her husband, Nick Carr, Jr., and her brother, Verdell Hogan. She leaves to cherish her memory: her sister, Evern Browning, of Arkadelphia, AR; one niece, Heather Browning; two nephews, Dennis Joseph Browning (Andrea) and Tony Hogan (Donna); two great-nieces, Jade Benning Browning, and Ava Browning; two great-nephews, Trey Hogan, and Dalvin Hogan; two special friends, Lily Young and Charlie Thomas, Jr.; her beloved pet, Max and a host of other family and friends.
