Notes for Margaret Ross CANNELL
Margaret Ross Cannell Spencer "Peg"
Peg Spencer, of Wilmington, DE, ended her journey at the age of 82 on July 15, 2008 in the comfort of her home.
Peg was a gracious woman who treated others with respect and kindness. She always put the needs of others before her own, and took joy in celebrating the accomplishments of her family. Peg was born and raised in Philadelphia, and graduated from the Friends Central School in Wynnewood, PA. She spent much of her time at her parent's bed and breakfast in Maine where she developed a love of animals and the outdoors. An avid gardener and bird watcher, Peg's native plant gardens and bird feeders provided her with much pleasure. She was a compulsive reader, had a lifelong interest in history and was a guide at the Hagley Museum and Old Town Hall in Wilmington. Peg was active in the Society of Mayflower Descendents in the State of Delaware and served on the Board of Directors and as Junior Membership Secretary. She and her husband Walter often went to elementary schools in the fall to talk about the Pilgrims and their trip to America. She was very artistic and often spent time on early American crafts including spinning, weaving, knitting, making hooked rugs or working on bronze powder stenciling projects.
She is survived by her husband of 52 ½ years, Walter; son, Brint of Wilmington; daughter, Libby Walker and her husband, George, of New Castle; daughter, Mary Lauer and her husband, Vaughn, of Oak Hill, VA; 6 grandchildren; Ross Brinton and Katherine Marie Spencer, Margaret Elaine and Anne Elizabeth Walker, and Melissa Dawn and Matthew David Lauer, and her sister Ruth C. Keinath of Westbrook, ME.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to VITAS for the services they provided.
A visitation will be held for family and friends at the CHANDLER FUNERAL HOME, 7230 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE on Wednesday, July 23 from 9-10:30 am, with a memorial service following at 10:30 am. Burial will be private.
