October 12, 1942 – October 4, 2011

Dianna Fay Spor, 68, of Orrick, Mo., passed away Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at Ray County Memorial Hospital. Dianna was born in Carrollton, Mo., on October 12, 1942 to Merrile and Dorothy (Smith) Keltner. She graduated from Excelsior Springs High School with the class of 1960. On June 4, 1961, she was united in marriage to Robert Wayne Spor. To this union was born two sons, Rodger Wayne Spor and Stephen Blaine Spor.

Dianna had lived most of her life in this area. She was a cook for the Orrick School District from 1982 until 2008. She loved cooking and taking care of all the kids. She most enjoyed the time she spent with her children and grandchildren. Dianna wanted to be a farmers wife from the time she was a young girl. She loved taking care of others and her many dogs and cats. She always put others before herself, which is why she was so loved. She is going to be greatly missed.

Dianna was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Marilyn Shade, and her son, Rodger Wayne Spor on April 16, 2006.

She is survived by her husband of fifty years, Bob Spor of the home; son, Stephen Spor and wife, Shelly; and her six precious grandchildren, Nicole Marie Spor, Shelby Leann Spor, Dakota Eugene Spor, Shelby Dawn Spor, Shance Alan Spor and Clorissa Holt-Spor.

The family will greet friends at Gowing Funeral Home in Orrick from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, October 8, 2011, with funeral services immediately following the visitation at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be at a later date in Missouri City Cemetery, Missouri City, Mo.

Memorials are suggested to the Ray County Humane Society in her memory.


My sincere sympathy goes out to the Spor family for your loss of this very sweet lady you called wife, mom and grandma. She was always friendly and fun to visit with. Since her retirement at school she has been greatly missed and now that she has been called to her heavenly home, she will be missed even more. May God’s blessings be upon you all.
