It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Elvira Spencer, on Tuesday, Sept 12, 2017 at Glace Bay General Hospital.
Elvira was a lifelong resident of Dominion before spending her last few years at Seaview Manor in Glace Bay. She was the daughter of the late Ena (Lynk) MacLean and Neil MacLean and last surviving member of her family.
She was predeceased by her husband, Eldon Lyle Spencer; her daughter, Shirley and grandson, Darrell, in infancy.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Ena Spencer (Paul Cowley), Collingwood, ON, Mendel (Margaret) Spencer, Kanata, ON, George (Sharon) Spencer, Lingan, NS, Sandra (Gerald) McNamara, Lower Sackville, NS, Theresa (Duane) MacKinnon, Calgary, AB, Mary (Bill) Madore, Kingston, ON, Darrell (Annette) Spencer, Glace Bay, NS; her grandchildren, David, Stephen, Matthew, Leanne, Shauna, Julianne, Bryan, Renee, Eldon, Kevin, Nicole, Holly, Ashley, Breanna and her great-grandchildren, Ava, Aela, Alexis and Alexander, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017 from 2 p.m. until the time of the funeral service at 3 p.m. in the chapel followed by a reception. Lay Minister, Martha MacDonald officiating. Interment will be held at Homeville Baptist Cemetery, Homeville, South Head.
Special thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff at both Seaview Manor (especially Kelly with whom Mom developed a fond friendship) and the Glace Bay General who cared for Mom. There are many memories that we children have of our Mom but the love for her family, her infectious laughter, hilarious sense of humour, and quick wit were remarkable and will stay with us forever. Rest well, sweet mom, your work on earth is done.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Elvira’s memory.
