Spellman’s widow dies

— Barely a week after the death of former Republican Gov. John Spellman, his widow has passed away.

Former First Lady Lois Spellman, 91, died last Wednesday, Jan. 24, nine eight days after her husband died on Jan. 16.

“Trudi and I are saddened to hear of the death of Lois Spellman,” Gov. Jay Inslee said after her death.

“Our state is better for the life and work of this gracious, loving and kind woman. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Spellman family. Losing Lois so shortly after the death of John is heartbreaking.”
