Eleda Alberta Eastman Spencer Stacy returned to her Heavenly Father July 26, 2001 in Bountiful, Utah, at the age of 99.

She was born March 7, 1902, in Woodruff, UT to Alberto Lincoln and Mary Train McDonald East-man. She married Howard Harris Spencer of Ran-dolph, UT July 5, 1919. Their mar-riage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple. In 1923, they moved to Pocatello, ID. Six children were born to this union. She married Morris Stacy Sept 18, 1954. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many positions. She was a visiting teacher for 75 years. She was a member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Desert Rose Camp, and in recent years has been numbered among the last true daughters of a pioneer. Her children, including two Stacy daughters and their families, were the center of her life. A witness of the remarkable progress and changes of a century, she leaves a rich heritage for her family.
