Leanora M. Spicer Fund

Leonora Spicer’s bequests to the Hamilton Foundation, Salvation Army, Scott Mission, United Church (for medical missionary work) and Red Cross exemplify her lifelong concern for the disadvantaged.

Born on a farm near Lowville, she trained as a Registered Nurse at the Hamilton General Hospital and worked there until she married Harry S. Spicer, remembered as a successful Hamilton investment counsel.

Mrs. Spicer also supported the Royal Botanical Gardens creating arrangements for their sales and providing funds to develop a sheltered garden, known as “Spicer Court”, at the south entrance of the Headquarters.
