Wilma Brentlinger Spacer died early the morning of March 13, 2019,
following a one-day illness. Born April 13, 1925, she spent her
childhood in Union and Champaign counties and worked as a civilian
secretary at Patterson Field during the War. She became well-acquainted
with Warren at not the first but only following the second telephone
company Christmas party in which they danced. In Lima she ran the
household to an accountant’s clear approval, cooked very well, and
skillfully made elementary-school clothes for both Lee and Beth. She
supported her husband in his self-employment when others didn’t and
completely took care of him until his end from Alzheimer’s. Eight years
after becoming a widow, she found a way to genuinely marry a second good
husband, William Spacer, who also predeceases her. Her grandson Chris
has traveled 120,000 miles to visit her each of the last 20 years. She
greatly aided both her children in adulthood with their various problems
predominantly through a quiet flexibility that was overwhelming to those
who could discern its subtlety. She seldom complained and remarked at
the end that she had had a good life. Her children were her highest
calling, always.
