Lorraine Patricia Spencer

Lorraine Spencer passed away peacefully at home on November 14, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on December 31, 1932, she spent most of her early years in North Attleboro, MA where she attended high school and met her husband of 58 years, Alan Spencer. Lorraine went on to study at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro and became a Registered Nurse. Lorraine and Alan married in 1955, settled in the Federal Way area and raised four children, Keith (Debbie) Spencer; Dale (Margaret) Spencer; Lisa (Steve) Klein; and Tim (Stephanie) Spencer. She worked at Riverton Hospital and Highline Medical Center, usually on the medical floor because she liked to see people get better and go home. Lorraine and Alan were avid sailors, cruising up and down Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Gulf Islands. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends at Twin Lakes Golf & Country Club and going to all of her grandchildren’s special events. Alan and Lorraine traveled the world with family and special friends. She is survived by Alan, her kids, and her 11 grandchildren: Lisa, Melissa, Laura, Jenna, Alyssa, Zachary, Danielle, Kori, Spencer, Kara and Kyle. Everybody loved Lorraine, how full of kindness, love and joy she was. Her sense of humor stayed with her to the end. We were all so lucky to have her in our life. In lieu of a funeral there will be a Life Celebration to be scheduled later. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Franciscan Foundation at www.fhshealth.org/Support-Franciscan/.
