Obituary
Nancy Elliott-Gunter

Nancy Elliott-Gunter (56), Passed away on August 12, 2016 after a courageous battle against cancer. Nancy was a kind-hearted and sweet spirit who lived her life with love.

Nancy was born in Washington D.C. and spent the majority of her life in the Alexandria area. She was a 1977 graduate of Fort Hunt High School and 1981 graduate of Virginia Tech. She made many friends working as a technical writer at a variety of companies over the years, including Northrop Grumman, the Library of Congress, Avectra, Aether Systems, Computer Based Systems, Inc., and TimeLife Books. Those she leaves behind remember her for her wonderful baking, the way she spent time genuinely caring for others needs, and for her devotion to her family.

Nancy was a beloved daughter, aunt, niece, sister, and most recently, wife. After 23 wonderful years together, she married the love of her life, Larry Gunter, on May 21, 2016. Larry was her constant support and remained by her side until the very end.

Nancy is survived by her husband, Larry Gunter, her mother, Jean Elliott, her sister, Susan Elliott, her brother, John Elliott (Ginger), nieces Ashley, Anna and Mary Liz, and nephew John Robert.

A memorial service and reception will be held at the Mount Vernon Unitarian-Universalist Church in Alexandria on Sunday, August 28 at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts in Nancy’s memory may be made to DC Cares where Nancy valued opportunities to serve others.
