Obituary

Emma Frances Strevils Spencer 80, passed away on November 10 at 1:15am at Hopedale Medical Complex Nursing Home.

She was born Feb 24, 1942, in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Gladys Frances Burkhead and Thomas Ray Strevels. She married Gary Spencer on January 9, 1960. He survives. Also surviving are her brothers Ray (Jane) Strevils and Randy (Bernadine) Strevels, her sisters, Janice (Mike) Carson and Wanda (Ken) Ballard, her children Thomas (Nancy) Spencer and Yvonne "Dee" (Terry) Wilson, three grandchildren Nicole Wilson, Alan (Ally) Wilson, Kristin (Jared) Wilkes, five great grandchildren, Evan, Lexi, Alaina, Reed, and Elijah, many nieces and nephews, and step grandchildren and step great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her in-laws, one brother and one sister.

Frances worked almost her entire working life at Methodist Medical Center, from where she retired. She was active in the local Medical transcription organization, the Peoria Motorcycle Club Women’s Auxiliary where she was treasurer and from where she ran the Judge’s Food Stand for many of the famous races held there. She enjoyed many evenings playing bingo with her mom and sisters.

Emma enjoyed her life living with the love of her life, Gary and her many dog pets. She got her motorcycle license and she and Gary had many travels far away as well as daily drives. Gary and her children wish to thank the Hopedale Medical Complex Nursing home, Dr Phil Rossi and Compassus Hospice for their excellent loving care of Emma during the last months of her life. They will never know the comfort the family had knowing Emma received excellent care during her stay. Her children also want to thank Gary for being her primary care giver for the last two years. He lovingly gave of himself to make sure her every desire was met. A private family gathering will take place at a later time.
