Veola Spencer Dogan was born to Howard Montgomery and Fannie Mae (Johnson) Spencer on February 14, 1936.
Veola was the fourth child of five siblings. She developed her nurturing and loving demeanor while taking care of her ill parents before they passed away at a young age. She valued and loved her family. When she began her own family, she stayed home with all six of her children to care for them. When her children got older, she worked at Proctor and Gamble for over 20 years. She started as a production worker and worked her way up to Project Manager. After retiring, she decided that she wanted to further her education. She loved the Lord’s healing touch and wanted to become a Christian counselor. She combined her love of her faith and her love for education and enrolled at Cincinnati Bible College. When she was 60 years old, she received her Associate of Arts in Christian Vocation. In addition to the Lord and family, she also enjoyed cooking, gardening, and being outside in general. On August 25, 2022, she was called home after a long illness.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her two brothers, John Howard Spencer and Floyd Gilbert Spencer, and her sister, Ruth Louise Young. She is survived by her sister, Ethel Whitehead, her daughters, Pamela (Alando) Chambers, Cynthia Dogan, and Andrea James, her sons, Ronald Dogan, Gerald (Marjorie) Dogan, and Edward (Karen) Dogan, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
