Mrs. Marie Spencer Reddeck, 98, of Trinity died Friday, June 17, 2022, at Randolph Hospice House.
She was born March 10, 1924, in High Point, a daughter of James Ross Spencer, Sr. and Nonnie Morris Spencer.

She was involved in improving her community as a member of the Archdale-Trinity Woman’s Club and received the Clubwoman of the Year award three times as well as the Juanita Bryant Citizenship Award in 1990.
