Ms. Spangenthal was brought up with an affinity for the fine arts and cultures of Europe. Her most important values in life were family first, love, pride and respect. She was an avid reader, a history buff, a connoisseur of classical music and fine crystal and bone china. She was a teacher of sales psychology and an ethics coach. 

As a young woman who survived World War II, she had a remarkably unique perspective on life. She was a lifetime member of the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary, Department of France. 

Ms. Spangenthal had an incredible life that words could not describe, the light of her life was her family. Cooking for the family, fine woodwork and pottery, gardening, birds, traveling, visiting museums and the ocean were some of the things that always brought a smile to her face. Her smile and her presence was a gift, just being around her brought joy to your life.

A private memorial service was held by the family.
