She is probably Steatoda grossa, a False Black Widow. They try to stay out of view by living in dark spots. They don’t see well, so it doesn’t hinder them. She’s not dangerous to people nor pets. She IS a great predator of insects and other spiders. She’s also called a Cobweaver, she makes true, “cob webs.”
