Lucy (Ellis) Spence


Lucy (Ellis) Spence

The passing of Lucy Ellis Spence, 94, of Springhill, occurred at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Sunday, March 8, 2020 after a brief illness.  Born in England, Lucy was a daughter of the late Arthur and Blanche (Rogers) Ellis.

Lucy had worked for the Eaton's Order Office for many years prior to marrying.  She was an active member of All Saints Anglican Church, Springhill, and a faithful Christian.  

A beloved wife and mother, she is remembered lovingly for her kindness and compassion, for her devotion to family, and loyalty and concern for friends.  She is remembered fondly for her encyclopedic genealogical knowledge and knowledge of the community, her dedication as a homemaker and for her love of dogs.

Lucy will be dearly missed by her husband of sixty-six years, John "Jock" Spence, of Springhill; her son  Brian Spence, of Parrsboro; two sisters-in-law, three brothers-in-law, as well as several nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by a brother, Arthur, two sisters, Alberta and Gertrude, and seven of her brothers and sisters-in-law.
