Ruth Clarke Spencer 1916 - 2010
My mom, who was 93 years old, passed away peacefully this morning just after 3:00 AM. We had a wonderful Christmas with her, and the next day she went to the hospital with pneumonia. After a stay there she went to a nursing home across the street, and has been there for two and one-half months. She has never been sick a day in her life, and so we are so thankful that she passed away peacefully. My sisters and I were talking today about all that she has given us. Our mom was the most selfless person we have known, and she sacrificed so much for all of us. She was gentle, and quiet and humble, and imbued us all with these qualities. This is a snapshot of my mom, with my sister Karen back in 1946. Isn't she beautiful?
