SPENCER, Whilimene “Wilma” “Willie”


Gone to be with our Lord, Wilma left us suddenly at home in Sudbury, Saturday, March 13th, 2004. Born and raised on a farm in Echo Bay, Ontario, she later moved from Detroit, Michigan to Sudbury to care for her ailing sister until her death, thence raising her two small nieces and nephews. Attending mass every day, Wilma was a devout Roman Catholic belonging to our Lady of Hope Church and life time parishioner of the former St. Clement’s Church. She was a member of the CWL and truly loved our Lord never failing to say three rosaries daily. Wilma was an avid gardener who loved her flowers and watching birds. She was also a huge Toronto Maple Leaf’s fan and enjoyed Saturday outings dining with “Her friends at Swiss Chalet’s South End.” Wilma was a selfless person, always willing to give whatever was needed. She was a proud retiree of the Sudbury Public Library. She always thought everyone was the “nicest, kindest person.” She will be sorely missed.
And He Came Himself To Meet Me
In That Way So Hard To Tread;
And With Jesus Arm To Lean On
Could I Have One Doubt Or Dread?
