Cheryl Spencer — obituary

Spencer, Cheryl

Passed suddenly but peacefully in her sleep during the early morning of April 10th, with her husband by her side. Survived by her loving & adoring husband Colin. Survived by sister Heather (Pieter) of Harrowsmith and her parents Edward and Yvonne of Perth. Cheryl was born in Toronto but quickly made it back to Ottawa. Her love of horses started early with her running down the street as a toddler to see horses. She completed her BA (Economics) at Carleton University and was also an accomplished equestrian rider. Always wanting to learn more she recently attained her real estate licence. When starting work after university, instead of buying a car with her first pay cheque, she bought a farm in Newburgh where she ran horse camps and lessons and influenced many young girls’ lives at Raspberry Ridge Farms. She relocated the animals (and herself) to the Almonte location just over 2 years ago to be with Colin. Cheryl never turned away any 2 or 4 legged creatures that needed help. She will be always remembered as a loving nurturer and whose greatest passion was helping others. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Almonte Civitan on Saturday April 21st from 2pm to 5pm. If desired donations may be made in her memory to LAWS (Lanark Animal Welfare Society). In lieu of cut flowers please give a plant or a tree that we may plant in her honour in one of her many gardens at the farm or at the cottage in Haliburton.

“She leaves us rich in memories.”
