Obituary

JENNIE FLORENCE BOWERSOCK SPACHT, age 100 was born March 11, 1918 on her parents’ farm outside of Buckland, Ohio. She was 1 of 8 children.  She served the Lord throughout her life, and was called home 9:00 a.m. Saturday, April 21 at Otterbein-Cridersville.

She enjoyed helping her husband Leonard in his pastoral years by visiting parishioners, the sick and shut-ins and members of the congregation. After his death she spent her time with family and friends in Ohio and winters in Arizona and Indiana with her children.  She especially enjoyed playing games and watching sports, notably her beloved Buckeyes.

She is survived by her sister Norma Green of Buckland and 3 children: Maurice Spacht of Phoenix, AZ, Nancy Tompkins (Jim Mills) of Green Valley, AZ and the Rev. Randall (Linda) Spacht of Whiteland, IN.  Besides her children, she also has 9 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and 8 great great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, The Rev. Leonard A. Spacht, her mother and father Louis V. and Carolyn F. Zerkle Bowersock and 6 siblings.

Her motto in life was to serve others… she did it well. Please join us in a celebration of her life at Bayliff & Son Funeal Home, Cridersville Thursday from 2-4 and 6-8, with the next day viewing at 10 and services at 11 at Bethlehem Christian Union Church, National Road near Buckland.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial contribution to Bethlehem Church or to your favorite charity.

Jennie and Leonard Spacht were great friends and encouragers throughout the years whenever we saw them. At the time when we were preparing for training to enter the ministry, they were invaluably used by God lending their helpful wisdom. What a role model Jennie was of a loving pastor's wife!

I just learned of Jennie's passing this morning. Jennie and my Mother, Virginia Fry, were lifelong friends. I can't be certain, but I suspect that their friendship developed as members of the Buckland High School women's basketball team back in the 1930's. My Mother passed six years ago. Clearly Jennie lived a wonderful and caring life and is in a better place now. My condolences to her children and family members. Bob Fry 4/28/2018
