Edith was a dear friend to myself and my late husband Pat Clark. We shared a lot of laughs at the Chinese restaurant. She was a classy special person. She touched a lot of peoples lives. The Amish community will also miss her smiling face and drop off of ice cream to the children’s school. Heaven received another angel...... Edith Zigler Spencer!!

The Earth has lost one awesome lady. I first knew Edith as Dr. Green’s dental nurse when I was a growing up. Always had a special place in my heart for both Eugene and Edith. She was always on a pedestal for me and I counted it a blessed pleasure to be able to work with her. I loved her experiential stories and insights. She was so wise and compassionate. And now, for all eternity, she and Eugene will be pain-free, and full of joy together praising their Savior. Looking forward to our reunion in Heaven. Let His peace reign over you as we begin a new year.
