Marie-Therese Josephine (Mouth) Spotts Obituary
Marie-Therese Josephine Mouth Spotts, 87, of Columbia, SC, and formerly of Hillsdale, MI, passed away January 6, 2018. Born on April 25, 1930 in St. Avold, France, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Catherine Bourgeois Mouth. Marie-Therese "Mimi" served as a translator for the US Army office located in Metz, France. It is through her work that she met her husband of 63 years, Donald Elery Spotts, who was stationed in Metz as a Lieutenant with the US Army Veterinary Corp. Donald and Mimi were married in 1954 in Metz, France and spent a few years in Armada, MI before moving to the family farm in Hillsdale where they raised their six children. Following Donald's retirement from veterinary practice, they moved to Melrose, FL and subsequently Columbia, SC to be closer to family.
Mimi is survived by her husband, Donald; her six children, Michael (Tammy) Spotts of Columbia, SC, Josette (Andres) Resto of Las Vegas, NV, Donald (Melissa) Spotts of Lexington, SC, Eric (Patricia) Spotts of Pocatello, ID, Nicole (David) Ringenberg of St. Louis, MO, and Monique Spotts of Miami, FL; 11 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her two sisters.
