Marian M. Spangler was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She died Thursday December 2, 2021, at Masonic Village, Elizabethtown where she was a resident. Marian was the proud wife of the late H. James Spangler who died in 2005. Marian was born in Landisville, the daughter of the late Clarence C. and Erma (Bowman) Bard. Marian graduated Mount Joy High School, class of 1946 and was employed at the former Gerberich-Payne Shoe Factory in Mount Joy and the former AMP, from which she retired. Marian was a faithful member of Ruhl’s United Methodist Church, Manheim. In her retirement, Marian spent time keeping-up with life-long schoolmates, doting on her granddaughters, and committed to community volunteer work. She enjoyed reading, learning to use the iPhone, and her greatest joy -- spending time with family and friends.

Spangler and her spouse Santiago Latorre; three great-grandchildren Elizabeth, Isabelle, Rose, with another great-granddaughter due in February; and dear friend, Mary Martin.
