Kristi Gayle Gunter of Athens passed peacefully to her eternal home with God Saturday morning surrounded by family and beloved friends.
She was a member of Pepper rd church of Christ.
Kristi was born  March 1, 1972 to Michael R. and Wanda G. (Ball) Gunter at Decatur General hospital.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents Benton & Betty Ball and Ellis & Syble Gunter.
She is survived by her parents, one brother Jason (Bobbie) Gunter Tampa, Fl. nephew Ethan (Kylie) great nephew Mason Jack. Survivors also include three children Haley Blair Lovell, Bryna Marie Croley, Gunter Layne Croley and three grandchildren Laura Leigh, Benton and Sierra.
Beloved aunts, uncles and cousins.
Two fur-babies Suki and Oliver.
Kristi was formerly employed by Florence Police Dept., Athens Police Dept. and Hemsi/Medcom as a communications specialist. She also worked at Browns Ferry Nuclear plant as a security officer.  She retired earlier this year from Athens/Limestone 911 center as shift lead in  communications.  Kristi was a stickler for details and was passionate about her job helping all those who called for assistance.  
Kristi taught Public Safety Telecommunicator 1 for APCO and the Alabama Fire college and other North Alabama agencies including the Limestone County Career Technical Center.
As passionate as she was about doing her job to the best of her abilities it paled in comparison to her love and devotion for her three children. As a single mother she spent countless hours first at the softball fields with Haley and Bryna then with Layne at the basketball court or baseball field.
Kristi never met a stranger, a friend to all and generous to those who needed her time and love.
Per Kristi's request no services will be held.
Memorials can be made to Clearview Cancer center or Kids to Love foundation for foster kids.

Momma, I love you and thankful to have had you as my mother. I’ll take care of Suki and Oliver. I know you always worried about them. I love you. I miss you dearly. I know I will see you again some day but for now, I miss you. I miss calling you to tell you about my day and asking if you want anything from the mexican restaurant. I promise to notice the little things in life and to not be so anxious about school or work. I love you. Thank you for being the best mom.
