Spencer, Patricia Harmer CARLSBAD -- Patricia Harmer Spencer went home to be with Christ on Saturday, April 13, 2013 after suffering a stroke. She was preceded by her husband, Charles in 1995; and is survived by her four children, Regina, Meredith, Greg and Tom; her son-in-law, Dan; daughters-in-law, Laurel and Lori; nine grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. In addition to her love of family and friends, Pat loved to volunteer for and support causes for which she was passionate, especially helping the hungry and supporting the families of our Marines. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all of the people she loved and served throughout her 83 years. Pat often remarked that she enjoyed an overwhelmingly blessed life. Pat wanted people to celebrate her life rather than mourn her passing. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be sent to the Patricia H. Spencer Memorial Fund at Food for the Hungry (1224 East Washington St, Phoenix, AZ, 85034- 1102). Interment will be private with immediate family members only in accordance with her wishes.
