Marilyn Spencer was an early ET nurse at the Cleveland Clinic and worked closely with Norma Gill-Thompson and Dr. Turnbull. She was the fourth person Norma trained. Marilyn and Norma were instrumental in organizing the IAET (precursor to the WOCN). She was active in the WCET, and served as its president, helping to establish ET schools in Japan and India. She led Project Share, to ensure ostomy supplies were sent overseas to underserved patients. She was also a prolific writer on Enterostomal Therapy topics. Marilyn began her ET career as an LPN, and became a BSN when this was required by our organization. She served as an integral member of the WOC school at Cleveland Clinic and had a hand in educating numerous individuals from the 1970s through 1990s. Marilyn served as team leader for the ETs at Cleveland Clinic in the late 20th century, encouraging all to maximize their potential. She served by example, giving exemplary patient care, publishing, and working in professional organizations for the betterment of all ETs (WOC nurses). A distinguished member of the Mideast Region of the WOCN®, many will remember her as a mentor and strong advocate for patients and WOC nurses. She passed peacefully at Cleveland Clinic on July 17th, 2018 under the care of the WOC nurses she mentored.
