Josephine H. Spence Obituary
Josephine H. Spence
Feb. 26, 1931 - Sept. 8, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Beloved Mother, Grandmother, and Gigi, Josephine Spence, 81. Born in Wilder, Idaho, to Joseph and Iva Clem. She married her First Love, Pat, both 17, in 1948, and later settled in San Pedro raising their two daughters, Patty and Kris. Jo accomplished many challenges, but was most proud of opening the first frozen yogurt shop in San Pedro, "Rainbows End Frozen Yogurt." She later volunteered at San Pedro Peninsula Hospital for 10 years. She was preceded in death by the "Love of Her Life" Pat, in 2002. She is survived by her daughters, Patty Jo (Christopher) Davis and Kristine (Nick) Lusic; 5 grandchildren, Jessica Carlson, Adam Davis (Katie), Nicholas Lusic (Laura Jo), Ryan Lusic (Jenna) and Andria Kordic (Steve); 10 great-grandchildren and one sister, Alma Keith of Boise, Idaho and her family. Our sincere appreciation goes to Emerald Isle Assisted Living for their 8 years of loving care to Mom, to Dr. Rahini and the 2nd floor nurses and staff at Little Co. of Mary/San Pedro Hospital and Trinity Care Hospice for their care and compassion during her final days. A memorial service is planned for Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at Green Hills Memorial Chapel with interment to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Trinity Care Hospice, 2601 Airport Dr. Ste. 230 Torrance, CA 90505, in memory of Josephine Spence. Please sign the guest book at Daily Breeze.com/obits.
