Rochella Darlene Spencer

SPENCER-Roxy obit

Rochella “Roxy” Darlene Spencer, 75, of Rushsylvania, passed away Friday, Oct. 9, 2015, at her residence.

She was born in Lima on Nov. 21, 1939, a daughter of the late Hubert “Jim” and Grace Arlene Craig Williams.

On June 29, 1957, in Allen County, she married Dwight Spencer and he preceded her in death June 28, 2015. She also was preceded in death by a sister, Coranita Longbrake; a brother, Randall J. Williams; and a brother-in-law, Robert Straker.

She is survived by children, Lynzetta (Mark) Leatherman of Bellefontaine, Jeff (Debbie) Spencer of Rushsylvania and Kimberly “Kim” (James) Bycynski of West Mansfield; grandchildren, Danielle, Landon, Curt, Alexa, Sydney, Lauren and Spencer; great-grandchildren, Lydia, Lane, Lance, Lacey, Preston, Whitney, Abigail, Annemarie, Sophia and Claire; one sister, Beverly Straker of Rushsylvania; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and many close friends.

Roxy attended Calvary Baptist Church in Bellefontaine. She worked as a licensed practical nurse in Mary Rutan Hospital for 32 years, primarily working in the obstetrics department. She enjoyed going shopping and loved the time spent with her children and grandchildren.

She was a fan of any sport or activity that her grandchildren participated in. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband and family to various locations throughout the years.

Roxy was the “wind beneath her husband’s wings,” and that bond is what allowed them to give so much back to the community in which they lived and served.

Pastor Jeffory Willetts will officiate a funeral at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14, at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home, 321 N. Main St., Bellefontaine, where visitation from 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13. Burial is in Harper Cemetery in rural Bellefontaine.

Memorial contributions may be made to Universal Home Health & Hospice, 701 S. Main St., Bellefontaine 43311.
