PLAINFIELD, NH — Susan Jean Spencer passed away on November 22, 2018 at the age of 64 surrounded by her loving family. Her death was sudden and unexpected.

Susan was born on November 17, 1954 as the first child of Roberta (Wyman) and Robert William Germeroth in Flushing, New York. She taught science at The Kildonan School in Amenia, NY from 1980 - 1996. Susan received her RN degree from the New Hampshire Community Technical College in Claremont, New Hampshire in 2007 and worked in the field of nursing, including hospice care, prior to her retirement. She enjoyed working at Prospect Woodward until moving to her new home in Plainfield, NH. Caring for others was important to her and was the reason she became an organ donor.

In addition to her love of family, Susan found great joy and happiness in gardening. She especially loved spending time in her recently built greenhouse.

On January 4, 2016 Susan and Winston Francis Spencer, Jr. were happily joined in marriage. They were in the process of renovating their home in Plainfield, New Hampshire when Susan was so suddenly taken.

In addition to her loving husband, Susan is survived by her two children, Megan (Hill) Wright of Hopewell Junction, New York and Justin Hill of New York City, New York; her mother, Roberta Jean Wingerson of Nelson, New Hampshire; her granddaughters Annabelle and Caroline Wright of Hopewell Junction; her sister Phyllis Gail Marinoff and husband Keith of Keene; her brother Robert William Germeroth, Jr. and wife Beth of Nelson and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Susan was predeceased by her father, Robert William Germeroth.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Nelson Congregational Church, UCC in Nelson, New Hampshire.
