Shores, Norman Richard  
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and he delighteth in his way." Psalm 37:23 Norman Richard Shores of 1664 Crowley Hollow Rd., Towanda, passed away at his home on Friday, March 27, 2015. Norman was born the youngest of five children to Walter and Louise Robinson Shores in Sheshequin Township. When Norman was three weeks old, his mother, Louise, passed away. He was brought to the home of his uncle and aunt, Pothier and Mable Shores. In this home, he was raised as a son and called them Mother and Dad. Their daughter, Barbara, was his sister. Norman graduated from Towanda High School in 1949. While in high school, he participated in school plays, choral groups, basketball, and was very active in the FFA. He received the FFA Keystone Farmer degree. Norman excelled at the state level of FFA competition in farm record keeping. Upon graduation, he joined his father, Pothier, on the dairy farm. On July 17, 1954, he married the love of his life, Glenda Mae Capwell at the Wyalusing Presbyterian Church. While still farming, he started buying and selling tractors on a very small scale, one or two at a time. After his father passed away in 1965, a decision was made to sell the dairy and enter the farm equipment business full time with new franchises for David Brown, Ford Tractors, and also Gehl and Lamco farm equipment. Norman loved people and selling, and the business grew rapidly in the 1970s. Norman won many trips from sales accomplishments that he and Glenda enjoyed. During this time, he also served as tax collector for Sheshequin Township. In 1978, Norman wanted to return to selling just used farm equipment. He discontinued the new franchises and continued in the used market with his son, Mark. In 1997, he decided to retire from the farm equipment business. At age 17, Jesus Christ became Norman's Savior and Friend. He continued all his life following Jesus and enjoyed leading young people, teaching Sunday School, and serving in leadership positions in the church. He started and ended his day reading God's Word. Norman always said, "The principles found in God's Word were his best guidelines for running a business." He was a member of the Independent Baptist Church, Towanda. In 1980, Norman and his wife purchased property in Wysox that became Shores Short Stop. This venture spurred a love of ice cream that remained with him to the end. Norman had great joy with his large family, and in spite of the large number, he could make each member feel special. He did this with his big smile and ready laugh, mixed with little words of wisdom whispered to them. Norman is survived by his best friend and helper of over 60 years, Glenda, who lovingly cared for him through his 14-year struggle with Alzheimer's disease. She gave him, and the family, the special gift of Norm being able to enter eternity peacefully from his own home. He is also survived by five sons, Kurtis Shores (Marilyn) of Iowa, Glenn Shores (Patti), Mark Shores (Rebecca), and Scott Shores (Laura) of Towanda and Timm Shores (Linda) of Florida; 28 grandchildren, Kelly, Holly, Ty, Bethany, Benjamin, Jacob, Delia, Angela, Caleb, Anna, Kendra, Moriah, Richard, Ryan, Rachel, Raya, Renee, Randall, Amber, Autumn, Glenna, Rob, Jenny, Chris, Ashley, Thomas, Nick, and Julie; 26 great-grandchildren; brother, Lavern (Helen) Shores; sister, Frances Lewis (Ross); half brother, David Shores (Teresa); sisters-in-law, Marge Shores, Betsy Swan, Sue Watson and husband Richard; many nieces and nephews including special nephews, Joe Thurston and Jerry Shores who spent their high school years in Norm and Glenda's home; and special caregiver, Pennie French. Besides his parents, Norman was predeceased by a grandson, Titus Shores; sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and Owen Thurston; brothers, Llewellyn and Edward Shores; and brothers-in-law, Sidney Lewis and Dr. Kenneth Swan. Interment will be private at the Hornbrook Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the Independent Baptist Church, Towanda, with Pastor Donn Hauser officiating. The family will receive friends in the church fellowship hall after the memorial service. The family suggests that contributions may be directed to the Independent Baptist Church, 109 Cherry St., Towanda, PA 18848 or to the North Rome Christian School, 3376 North Rome Rd., Rome, PA 18837, in Norman R. Shores' memory. Memories and condolences may be expressed by visiting www.bowenfuneralhomes.com .

Spencer, Irene M.  
On Friday, March 27, 2015, Irene Mae (McNett) Spencer, eldest daughter of Loren and Edith (Myrick) McNett, passed away quietly at Troy Community Hospital, just five days before her 98th birthday. She was born in Leolyn, Tioga County at the home of her grandmother, Armenda Landon Griswold, on a hill known as Jacob's Ladder. She graduated Canton High School with the class of 1936. She worked at many jobs during her life, including a cannery, a dairy, pipefitter's assistant, a home for mentally and physically challenged children, as a school teacher in Rock Hill, Md., the former Crowe Nursing Home in Canton as well as the former Belmar Manufacturing Co. in Canton where she was employed for 25 years. On March 4, 1947, Irene married Willis J. Spencer, and they settled in the Spencertown section of Union Township. There they ran a diversified 72-acre farm and shared 53 years until Bill's passing. She was the quintessential farm wife, taking pleasure in the planting of crops and caring for animals. Irene continued to live at the farm, milk her cow, collect her eggs, work her vegetable garden and apple orchard and preserve the fruits of her labors until very recently when her health would no longer permit it, and she relocated to the Sherwood Retirement and Personal Care Home. Irene accepted the Savior in 1936 at the Newelltown Seventh Day Adventist Church, later transferring her membership to the Canton S.D.A. Church, where she taught the children's Sabbath School class for many years. Irene was a very outgoing and friendly person, who had a knack for remembering the names and the slightest details about everyone she met even just once. She always made you feel welcome and treated you like family. She lived by the philosophy that there are no strangers, only friends that we haven't met yet. Although she never had children of her own Irene had several "adopted" children and grandchildren. Her staunch, (sometimes stubborn) independent streak, coupled with her insurmountable faith in the Lord, sustained her life for nearly a century. Irene is survived by her sisters Delores Meyer of California and Lenora Stackhouse of Williamsport, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, and her extended "adopted" family. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Stanley McNett, and special great-nephew Dustin McNett. Visitation will be 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31, at Morse & Kleese Funeral Home, 94 N. Center St., Canton. Service will be at 3 p.m. Interment will follow in North Union Cemetery.
