She was born March 6, 1939 in White Oak, Kentucky to the late Finley and Hattie (Griffiths) Frederick. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother and was dedicated to her family and her faith in the Lord. Her family, most especially her grandchildren, were the center of her life. All the memories she shared with her family will long be remembered and cherished.

Shelva was a member of Brookwood Way Church of Christ. She was Native American, her Indian name was "Stillwater" and loved making native beaded jewelry and crafts. She was very artistic and was an avid reader. Shelva enjoyed new experiences and enjoyed going out to dinner, traveling and spending time with her family. Her little dog, Chico, was the apple of her eye and one of her "children".

She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Oscar Spencer; daughter, Lynne Spencer of Mansfield; son, Brad Spencer of Los Angeles, CA; two grandchildren, Myles Buchanan of Mansfield and Mayan Spencer of Los Angeles; a sister, Joan Johnson of Mansfield; a sister-in-law, Jean Frederick of Mansfield; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, William "Bud" Frederick and an infant brother.

The family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Ontario Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 100 S. Lexington-Springmill Road.
