Mrs. Geraldine Tyler Hunt was born March 6th, 1945 in Fairmont North Carolina to Reverend Claimon Tyler and Grace Bullard Tyler. She passed away on February 24th, 2022. 

Like many, she grew up farming in the Fairmont community where she learned how to work hard as well as the value of a dollar. She grew to be a beautiful young woman. 

She married Vernie Clinton Hunt, Sr. and moved to Winston-Salem,

NC where they raised their family. 

Geraldine was a devoted mother and grandmother and was fiercely protective of her family. She was a PROUD member of the Lumbee Tribe and welcomed everyone into her home with her charm and grace. She loved to laugh and is remembered for her beautiful smile. Geraldine loved the beach and she was always ready to go. 

 She was a wonderful cook and always had plenty of food for any guest in her home. 

She was preceded in death by her mother, Grace Tyler and two brothers, James “Bud” Tyler and Talmon Tyler. 

Geraldine leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Vernie Hunt, Sr. of the home; her father, Reverend Claimon Tyler; three sisters, Evelyn Oxendine, Mary Hunt and Bertha Hunt; one brother, Claimon Lee Tyler;

her children, Merinda Swaim (Jason), Veronica Thornton (Kelly), Melissa Adams (Derek), Vernie Hunt Jr.:  her grandchildren: Armando Swaim, Jason Swaim jr, Emily Bah, Julie Carter, Lyndsey Plumeau, Blake Thornton, Savannah Willoughby, Marissa Willard, Shayla Black, Grace Hunt, Tyler Hunt; her great grandchildren, Bryce Swaim, Grayson Swaim, Isabella Swaim, Amaya Swaim, Adrianna Swaim,
