Obituary of Pauline Spencer

Spencer, Pauline Diana (nee England) Passed away at Mariposa House Hospice on Saturday March 4, 2023, at the age of 91 after courageously battling lung cancer. Beloved wife for nearly 67 years to the late Jack Spencer. Born in Portchester England, the youngest of six, the strength and determination of the "England Gene pool" remained steady throughout her life as she has always stayed true to her beliefs. Mum was so proud of her two daughters Sally Anne Spencer (Barry) and Joanne Bishop (John). She has been an amazing Nana to Thomas and Alex Bishop providing support and counsel in a way that only a grandparent can do. Pauline’s determined spirit will be missed. She was never afraid to stand up for herself, be involved in the community, change directions, or give an opinion. Her family, friends and her garden were the source of her joy and inspiration - unless you phoned during Coronation street - then you could wait! Her friends Mary, Craig, and other neighbours kept her safe and sane throughout the pandemic with regular grocery runs and socially distanced happy hours! (Sally and Joanne are forever grateful). She valued friendships to her very core. A special thank you to Dr. A. Barnett and his team for their outstanding partnership in her care and the amazing staff and volunteers at Mariposa House Hospice. In keeping with Pauline's wishes, cremation has taken place. She and Jack will be interred together at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Mariposa House Hospice through the Simcoe Funeral Home, 38 James St. E. Orillia (705) 327-0221. Messages of condolence are welcomed
