Florence was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. She will be remembered and wholehearted missed by her family who she raised and supported through all walks of life.
There’s no denying that time spent at Florence’s house was a special time with memories of chit chat and her spoiling her great-grandchildren.
As per her wishes, there will be no services. All who wish to honor her life are invited to hang a bird feeder this summer at their home and post memories or final words on her Facebook page.
