LOLITA LEAHY SPENCER GANLEY
January 13, 1917 - November 17, 2010
Although this year has provided me with many great memories of adventurous travel & fun with family & friends, I will remember 2010, as a year of great personal loss. In all my 58 years, I have never said a final goodbye to so many special people in such a short period of time.
Lolita was the common denominator of our extended Naples family. She was the reason that most of us made the move to paradise after she moved here in the 80’s. She was the “glue” that held together what’s left of Daddy’s side of the family. I have admired her gentle, southern style my entire life. Lolita was my idol! She had no daughters; & my relationship with her was more like that of a mother. I relied on her for motherly advice since I lived so far away from my own. And when I no longer had one, she took on the role of mine.
I will miss her presence; but take great comfort in the fact that she has found peace for her mind, body & soul once again. Until we meet again…..
