OBITUARY: Agnes Lorraine Spencer

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Agnes “Lorraine” Spencer, 73, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, passed away Tuesday, July 12, 2022, after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer.

She was born April 25, 1949 in Rockingham to Ben and Agnes Dunn, who preceded her in death.

She lived in Rockingham until meeting and eloping with the love of her life Floyd Spencer Jr., her husband of almost 55 years. He was by her side as she went to be with Jesus.

Lorraine built a life around supporting Floyd as he served his country in the U.S Navy. She made raising two children and maintaining the home while Floyd deployed look easy because she took so much joy in it. She was a strong military spouse.

I don’t think anyone could argue that her greatest joy in life was being NaNa to her two grandboys, Calvin and Austin, and her furbabies. She loved them fiercely and they loved being spoiled by her time and love.

Lorraine had such a servant heart for her family and friends. She loved to express her love through her amazing cooking and doing for others selflessly. Not a holiday went by that someone didn’t request her macaroni and cheese or banana pudding! She loved all things Christmas and had such a green thumb. She loved for orchids to be at every turn in the house.

Above all, she loved and served the Lord. We all knew that she was always praying for us every single day and we have no doubt she is still doing the same in heaven as our Angel. In her final days, she would often recite Psalm 23 and now we can rest assured that she will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. We have all lived in anticipatory grief of this day for quite some time and we will miss our Sweet Lorraine but oh how we rejoice that she is in pain no more!

Lorraine is survived by her devoted husband, Floyd Spencer Jr; her children, Floyd (Kathryn) Spencer III, Kellie (Jeff) Meyer; and her grandchildren, Calvin and Austin Meyer.


A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 3-4 p.m. at Yates Funeral Home, 7951 S U.S. Highway 1, Port St. Lucie, Florida.
