She was the 10th of their 12 children,Angie married her high school sweetheart, Cline "Bud" Spencer on August 22, 1953 and went on to create a large family of their own. They settled in Essexville, Michigan in the fall of 1973. Angie and Bud strived to give their children experiences they themselves never had, and instilled a work ethic in them that they all use to this day. Angie enjoyed numerous activities throughout her life. She was a voracious reader, a crossword puzzle fanatic, and a family champion Scrabble player. Although she could not golf for the last several years, it was a game she loved to play, especially with her mom and sister Dolly. Angie gave each of her children a small part of herself throughout her life. Her love of family. Her gentle and caring nature. Her love of laughter. Her lifelong friendships. Her ability to put a smile on her face at all times. These lessons were delivered by her each day. Now we get to carry them forward. The torch has been passed, and it is our job to keep it glowing for the next generation. Although we will miss her dearly, we know she is in a better place. Angie is survived by her children, David (Leta) Spencer, Donna (Gregg) Grobbel, Martin (Angie) Spencer, Paul (Lisa) Spencer, Kevin (Camie) Spencer.
