King – Mary Louise Spencer, 88, of King passed away at Rose Tara Senior Living surrounded by her loved ones. 

Mrs. Spencer was born on February 2, 1932, in Rockingham County, to the late John Garrett and Mary Jones Chumley.  She was a homemaker that loved caring for her family and others; she never met a stranger.  She was of the Primitive Baptist Faith.

Left to cherish her memory is her daughters: Debora Parrish (Mark), and Judy Tuttle; daughter-in-law, Teresa Spencer; grandchildren: Brandy Wilder, Krystal Ryggs, Kayla Willis, James Spencer, Dakota Parrish, April Tuttle, and Kimberly Tuttle, along with seventeen great grandchildren.

A special thank you to Rose Tara for not only caring for Mrs. Spencer, but for being like family.
