Bruce Scott Spencer- age 80, of Hendersonville passed away June 20, 2014. “Angel of healing, body and heart, working for God and willing to start”. This is the inscription on Bruce Scott Spencer’s grave marker. She was born on February 7, 1934, in Eight W Virginia, to Aura and William A. Scott of MacDowell County, West Virginia. She lived a very full and active life. On June 20, 2014, she was called to heaven to serve her Lord, Jesus Christ. During her 80 years on this earth, she left her mark on her family, friends and all who came in contact with her. Always a Christian, Bruce Scott Spencer re-affirmed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior on March 16, 2008. Her two daughters joined her in the Baptismal also re-affirming Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and creating a spiritual bond that will endure forever.

Family remained very important to Bruce during her entire life. She shared stories about her childhood, relating the closeness and love that she had for her mother, father and two sisters. She married Robert Dean Spencer on March 17, 1956. Together, they raised three children, William (Bill), Deborah and Lisa. Bruce instilled in her children, the values that she grew up with. These included love of family, loyalty to friends, love of animals, a strong work ethic, the importance of education and the importance of treating all people with respect and kindness. Bruce had a tremendous love for her grandchildren, great grandchildren, daughter-in-law, son-in-law and other people who were significant in her children’s lives.

As an adult nurse practitioner, Bruce spent her professional life helping others. This extended into her personal life as well. She never met a stranger, had an amazing sense of adventure and a great sense of humor that allowed her to make friends wherever she went. She was happiest when she had her entire family around her, including close friends that she considered to be family. We can take comfort in the knowledge that she is not only joining Jesus Christ in heaven, but also reuniting with her mother, father, husband and grandson who preceded her in death. We can also take comfort in the knowledge that although she will be greatly missed, she has been reborn to begin a new adventure in heaven and to serve God in her afterlife.

She was preceded in death by her husband Robert “Bob” Spencer; grandson, Chris Spencer and parents, William and Aura Scott.
She is survived by her son, William (Vicki) Spencer; two daughters, Debbie (Joe) Abraham and Lisa Spencer (Henry Gregory); grandson, Alex (Whitney) Spencer; two great-grandchildren, Bo and Kaylee Spencer and numerous friends whom she also considered family.

    my dear Bruce we spent much time together as room mates in preperation to become RNS at Stuart CircleHospital in Richmond. There are many precious memories, some good and some not as plesant. I am so thankful for our friendship and especially thankful for the visit from you and Lisa. I am sorry I did not get to meet Debbie but feel that I knew her because of the special love she had for her family. God has another special angel in his care now I know you are in his care. I am sorry we did not have more time to share our lives. I love you and cherish the times we had together. Love from your Roomate. Barbara Lee

    Financial advisors are just ciioossmmned sheep herders and that is all. Money cannot come from nothing, so if you made it then somebody lost it or will lose in the future, and that is the only thing guaranteed. Don’t be a sucker and believe everything these sweet talking fools in suits tell you. Major market collapse is coming, and at that point a lot of people will lose everything, and the advisors will be like deer in headlights along with their ruined clients wondering what happened.
