Obituary of Kitch Spencer
On Sep 15, we lost a spunky, young at heart centurion, Kitch Spencer, who died peacefully at UH with family by her side.
She will now be reunited with her loving and devoted husband, Dick Spencer.
Kitch will be remembered for her adventurous nature and feisty, fun personality. Everyone knew that mom's greatest ritual was her daily iced capp. When Dick could no longer provide, Amanda, grandson Mitch, and granddaughter, Sam, would often jump in to deliver. Eventually, mom's devoted caregiver, Linda, became very good at recreating the sweet treat. Mom loved her sports and was very lucky to have enjoyed her last Blue Jays game with son, Rick, and daughter-in-law, Caroline on Sep 14. Her lively conversations were valued by all, and found her stepson, Marc (Bev), and herself staying up late while watching Johnny Carson. Mom also enjoyed conversations with granddaughter, Vanessa and learning about her education goals and aspirations.
Her sense of adventure and fun was vast. At 99,she went on a pontoon boat with granddaughter, Alix, rode a gondola with Jan, visited granddaughter, Carly's (Mike) startup company on the west coast, listened to Andrew's choir with granddaughter, Tannis (Andrew), and enjoyed a food truck festival with grandson, Spencer. Just last week, Kitch went to the Western fair with grand daughter, Kirby (Darcy) and great grandson and great granddaughter, Jack and Parker.
Mom's curiosity for family is boundless and she loved the many videos of latest great grandson, Arthur. Fridays with Kitch will be missed dearly, by daughter, Mickey, and her partner Sam, as this was the day they would pack up, grab an iced capp and head to the cottage for the weekend where Kitch enjoyed bonfires, and relaxing on the deck.
Kitch was inspirational for her positive outlook on life and the way she adapted to adversity. She will leave a deep hole as she was a great source of strength and stability.
Celebration of Life is to be held at Boler Mountain, 689 Griffith St, London, ON, Sun. Sept. 29 from 2 - 5 p.m.
