On Monday, October 4, 2021, Heaven gained a special Angel, Loma K. Gunter, 70, of Glen Morgan, West Virginia.
Born on July 4, 1951 in Beckley, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late George Waine and Lanzy Jane (Massie) Ransom.
Loma was a retired BellSouth operator, dispatcher, and later became one of the first women lineman. Alongside her sister, Brenda Webber, she was the co-owner of Rick’s Fried Chicken in Shady Spring.
She was preceded in death by her parents, an infant daughter Lanzetha Suzanne Thompson, her son Jerry Lee Gunter Jr, four brothers Arnold Darryl, Bobby Eugene, Donald Ray, and Dallas Wayne Ransom, and four sisters Polly Ann Ransom, Betty Jean Ransom, Ina Fern Lilly, and Brenda Carol Webber.
Survivors include her husband Jerry Lee Gunter Senior; two brothers, George Robert and his wife Wanda of Cool Ridge and Ronnie Dean Ransom Senior of Cool Ridge; one sister Tammy Sue Pack and husband Harold of Fitzpatrick. She also leaves behind her one and only granddaughter, Joslyn Nicole Scarbro-Gunter, who was the highlight of Loma’s life. We must not forget her fur babies, Tank, Baby girl, and Tempi, who miss their mama very much. Also left behind to mourn are many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A very special thanks to two of her caregivers, Karen Scarbro, who was like a daughter to Loma, and her nephew, Cody Pack, who both gave freely of their time to help care for Loma and husband Jerry.

held at the Rose and Quesenberry Peace Chapel in Beckley on Saturday, October 9,
