Nancy Ann Spencer of Lake Kiowa passed peacefully from this life and entered her eternal home on December 9th, 2020.
Nancy was born on July 17th, 1933 in Wichita Falls, TX to Marvin and Virginia Edgmon and graduated from Wichita Falls High School. Shortly thereafter she met the love of her life, Joe Spencer and they married on August 20th, 1951 in Wichita Falls. They raised two sons while Joe’s career with Whites moved the family from Irving to Houston, Atlanta and Richardson. After retirement, Joe and Nancy settled in Lake Kiowa Tx and were soon embraced by an abundance of neighbors and friends in the community and their Church, First Baptist, Gainesville. After Joe’s passing, Nancy continued to enjoy her bridge club, the Kiowa Women’s Club and lunch with friends.
Known lovingly as Fancy Nancy, she filled many roles and commanded a mighty presence with her signature style, vivacious personality and love of family. She had the gift of gab, never met a stranger and will be remembered for her storytelling and laughter as well as her generosity, but perhaps the most defining role of her life was that of Nannie! She adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren with a love and creativity that gifted each of them with memories they will cherish forever. However, the most important gift she is leaving her family is the legacy of her faith which carried her through every season of life. She intentionally rose early and began every day reading her Bible and spending time in prayer. That began a conversation that lasted throughout her day as she spoke to and depended on her precious savior, Jesus Christ and we rejoice knowing that her faith has now been made complete!
Having been preceded in death by her beloved husband Joe, Nancy is now enjoying the blessing of a reunion in heaven with him and all of her loved ones who have welcomed her home.
The family would like to thank the staff at Wesley House Assisted Living for blessing Nancy with their loving care.
