She was a member Chi Omega sorority and the Gettysburg College Choir. She taught high school English in the Poco Mountain School District in Swiftwater, PA for 27 years. Elly was married to the Reverend William F. Wunder for 30 years, until his death in 1975. They raised six children in East Stroudsburg, PA, Amy Stabenow, Sally Snayberger, Molly Bell, Frederick Wunder, Jenny Galunic, and Nora Faul. In 1983 she married Dr. Edward T.
