Dolores was a partner in the business, a published author and homemaker. She was an avid reader, enjoyed playing bridge with her friends and going out for ice cream.

Dolores is survived by her husband, Norman Spencer; her daughter, Melinda Spencer, her grandchildren, Grace Spencer Verrinder, Dana Williams and Damon Williams; her great-granddaughter, Krysten Williams, and her brother, Darrell Damon.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, April Williams, and brother, Donald Damon.
