Matilda Myria Spence

November 18, 1953 — April 3, 2023

After a short illness, Matilda Spence entered the Spirit World on Monday, April 3, 2023, at the age of 69 years.

She was predeceased by her daughter Valentina “Tina” Spence; siblings Albert, John George (Emmerine), Johnny, Eli, Jemima, Virginia, Walter and Edna Fisk along with her parents Caroline Gray and Andrew Spence.

Matilda loved spending time with her family.  She especially enjoyed going for walks and sitting outside watching her babies play. She loved listening to music and often played the guitar.  One of her best qualities was helping others.  She was kind and sweet and always talked up a storm to anyone she encountered.

Thank you to all the doctors and nurses for all the help, support and care they gave our mama bear.

We will miss her dearly.
