Letha B. Spofford, 84, died September 1, 2016, at a Bangor hospital. She was born April 14, 1932, in Stonington, the daughter of Charles and Winifred (Shepard) Barbour.
Letha graduated from Stonington High School, class of 1950. She was the organist at the RLDS church for 50 years, a task she started when she was just 9 years old.
