Irene Spurling

Irene Kindrick Spurling passed away on January 27, 2018, at age 80.  Her passion for living was evident in the love and care she extended to her husband, children, grandchildren, and many friends throughout her eighty years.  Although she was a devoted mother and grandmother, family wasn’t Irene’s only passion; she was a bookkeeper by trade, and was a voracious reader of all books.  She was a lover and student of history, particularly English and Scottish.  She was passionate about politics - she was not shy about her staunch Republican leanings.  She was passionate about sports - even in times of sickness, you could find Irene cheering her beloved Vanderbilt football and basketball teams.  She was passionate about her faith, as a longtime member of the Peyton Road Church of Christ.  She was a friend to the end, beloved by her family, friends, and caretakers, and will never be forgotten.  Her family extends a special thank you to Home Instead Senior Care and Kindred Hospice, who were there for Irene as her earthly journey concluded.  We rejoice that she is reunited in Heaven with her beloved husband of fifty-two years, James Spurling, parents Virgil and Hazel Farmer Kindrick, and siblings Tommy Kindrick, Avery Kindrick, Dennis Kindrick, Edwin Kindrick, Eugene Kindrick, and Lenice Potter.   

She is survived by her children, Jamey (John) Taylor and James “Kirk” Spurling (Amanda), and her grandchildren Jamey Marie Spurling and James Cody Spurling. 

A Memorial Service in honor of Irene’s life will be conducted by Brother Patrick Johnson at 3 pm, Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Sellars Funeral Home, Lebanon, TN.  The family will be receiving friends at the funeral home on Saturday from 1 pm until the service.  Sellars Funeral Home, Lebanon TN, 615.444.9393.
