Florence Spears Obituary

With much love spread and many memories shared, our beloved Florence accept­ed her angel's invitation into the kingdom on Thursday, October 22, 2020 in Tren­ton, New Jersey. As a result, our hearts are less bright but we know the heavens are filled with extra doses of love, joy, peace and laughter. 

Florence M. Spears, born June 4, 1942 in Trenton, New Jersey to Carney C. Clem­ens and Minme I. Williams-Clemens. 

She was educated in the Trenton public school system, and she graduated from Trenton Central High School in the class of 1960. She was employed by General Motors Company in Ewing, New Jersey, Trenton Tech Tiles and Senior Care of Ewing. New Jersey. , 

In her leisure time, Florence was a fantastic cook and baker. Some of her other tal­ents included being a skilled seamstress, a gardener and an interior decorator and designer. She had a keen eye for trends and style, and she was a perfectionist at hairstyles, fashions and makeup. She was known by her family members and friends as a loving, caring, sharing and forgiving person. She was blessed with a happy go lucky attitude and personality. Florence was the kind of person you meet once in a lifetime. That is one of the many reasons why she was so loved. 

She was preceded in death by her parents Carney C. Clemens and Minnie I. Wil­liams-Clemens; her brothers George 'Shag', Leslie "Les", Charles, and Ronald Sr. Clemens; her sisters Gloria Bradley and Minnie E. Sapp-Clemens; her ex-husband Alton C.
