It is with great sadness that the family of Diana M. Howard Spencer, 64, of Farmington, NY announce her passing on July 30, 2023.
Diana was born on December 3, 1958, in Las Cruces, New Mexico to Margaret (D’Agostino) and Franklin Howard, who predeceased her. They soon moved to Watertown, NY where Diana was raised with her four inseparable siblings: Rosemary Scudera, Cheryl Schloop Hansen, Franklin Howard II, and David Howard.
In 1986, Diana married her husband of 34 years, Craig V. Spencer who also predeceased her. Together they lovingly raised two children in Watertown, NY before relocating to Port Charlotte, FL where she became a dedicated member of D3 Church.
Diana is survived by her children, Christopher Day (Anna Day) and Melissa Gonzalez (Juan Gonzalez, Jr.); her grandchildren SRA Nikolai Wakey, Dasani Prideaux, Alexci Gonzalez, Juan Gonzalez III, Caiden Day and Madison Day, and many loved nieces and nephews.
While we grieve Diana’s loss, we are choosing to remember her in a way that honors her sweet spirit. We invite you to join us at a Celebration of Life Ceremony taking place at Rochester Cremation, 1118 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY on Saturday, August 19, 2023, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you do a kind deed for someone else, or donate to an animal shelter, as it is what Diana would have done with her great affection for people and animals. She was a woman of strong faith and lived a life serving others so please help us continue that kindness in her honor. Anytime you hear a wind chime on your journeys through life, we hope that you think of Diana, smile, and know that she is with us in spirit and peace.
