SPENCER, Ind. – An elderly couple from Spencer died just one day apart last week.

The family of the couple held a joint memorial service Monday at West Parrish & Pedigo Funeral Home.

David was a Baptist minister and had served five churches across Indiana and Illinois. He was also a member of Freedom Baptist Church.
