From Bill Fawcett's book:
JACK WALTON SPENCE was born on April 2, 1912 in Eagle Pass, Maverick County, Texas. After graduating from High School, he attended Rice University in Houston. Jack Spence married Clara Mae Carson in Eagle Pass, Maverick County, Texas on April 10, 1935. After he graduated from Rice (1936), they continued to live in Houston for 7 more years. Their two daughters (Carolyn Carson Spence and Elizabeth Melissa Spence) were born in Houston. By December 1942 it was apparent that he would be drafted to serve in the military during World War II, so they moved back to Eagle Pass and lived on Monroe Street across from her parents (Charles and Abbie Carson). After the war was over, Jack did not want to return to Houston. After his discharge (June 1945), he rejoined his family in Eagle Pass and worked for the Eagle Pass Frozen Food Products until the Style Shop, established by Clara Mae Spence, was well established. They both owned/operated the shop until their retirement in 1982. After that their daughter, Carolyn, and Jack’s nephew, Walter Fitch, continued to run the shop. Jack W. Spence died in Eagle Pass on Jan 19, 1995.
