Today's obituaries

Date published: 12/29/2012


In 1953, she sailed on the S.S. Liberte to Europe for an eight-month grand tour. Onboard ship, she met her husband. They were married in 1954 and settled in her husband's hometown in northern England, where their daughter, Gillian, was born in 1955. In 1956, they moved to Virginia, where her husband was named health director of the Rappahannock region. Their son, Tony, was born in 1958.

In addition to raising a family, Mrs. Spencer was active as a Girl Scout leader, a PTA president, and a volunteer with Women in Community Service and the Job Corps. In the mid-60s, she was featured doing charitable work in a documentary produced by the U.S. Information Agency. She was extremely generous in her financial support of charities.

Mrs. Spencer adored her grandchildren, and though she was gravely ill, she was determined to live long enough to meet grandson Charlie Spencer, who was born Nov. 1, 2012. In the last weeks of her life, she enjoyed spending time with him and granddaughter Josie.

In accordance with her wishes, Mrs. Spencer's remains were cremated. A memorial service will be held on a date to be determined.

The family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Ladysmith Volunteer Rescue Squad, Box 186, 18287 Jefferson Davis Highway, Ladysmith, Va. 22546.
