Ellen Spencer, In Memoriam

Friday, January 22, 2021 1:33 PM | Anonymous

Dear Friends,

Sadly, it has come to our attention that former UUWF Executive Administrator Ellen Spencer passed away earlier this month. Ellen was a vital and consistent part of the UUWF leadership team for almost four decades.

During an interview in 2007, she said that she worked with the UUWF because, “I need to feel that what I am doing with my life is somehow helping make some small part or parts of the world ‘better’ … closer to a place where the innate worth and dignity of every person is not only recognized and celebrated, but nurtured and helped to flourish.”

Ellen retired from her work with us in 2014 and focused on travel and writing since then. In a world that can use all the people it can get who share her commitment to service, she will be missed.
