Chlora Lou was born July 18, 1930, in Coushatta, LA to William Leslie Hunter and Chlotielde Rawls Hunter. She went home to be with her Lord and Savior on August 23, 2021, in Martin, LA. She was a retired social worker for the state of Louisiana in Red River Parish for the majority of her adult life.

The family matriarch, she loved and is loved by her children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Remembered by all for her love of crocheting, gardening, cooking for the family, and her children and grandchildren s 4-H projects.
