Nancy Gantt, 80, of Harrisburg passed away peacefully on September 29 at the Colonial Park Care Center. Born September 22, 1930 in Harrisburg, she was the 2nd daughter of John and Ethel Arnold. She was predeceased by her sisters Phyllis Moyer and Kathleen Powers.
Nancy graduated from John Harris High School in 1948. She was a devoted, life-long member of Zion Lutheran Church in downtown Harrisburg where she served on the vestry, church council and alter guild and was a member of the fellowship class. She worked for the Bell Telephone Co. of PA from 1948 to 1958 and later worked for Pomeroy's and the Bon Ton in Colonial Park from 1974-1994.
Nancy was the very loving wife of Willard B. Gantt, whom she married in 1956. She is survived by her daughter Kimberly Hill of Horsham, PA, son Michael A. Gantt of Granby, CT, son-in-law Michael Hill, and daughter-in-law Deborah Gantt, and she is also survived by grandchildren Sean Hill, Kristen Hill, Abigail Gantt, and Michael J. Gantt, as well as nieces Stacy Hannigan of Colorado and Pamela Lytle of Harrisburg and their families.
Nancy had a very caring soul and was loved dearly by family and friends. She enjoyed travel, but found the greatest pleasure in the simple things: hand-in-hand walks with her husband, holiday gatherings, visits with the family and friends, baking and decorating special birthday cakes, gardening, craftwork, and feeding her backyard birds and chipmunks.
A brief service will be held at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, Annville, PA, on Friday, Oct. 8th at 2:00 p.m. A memorial service will be held for Nancy at Zion Lutheran Church, Harrisburg, PA on Sat. Oct. 9th at 10 a.m.
