  • I’m so lucky to have met this beautiful woman I love you and aren’t no words or emotions on our feeling rest in heaven aunt flo

  • We have known Florence for a long time as a colleague and friend – when we had our first child, she flowered her love on him and became his ‘adopted grandma’! We are indeed blessed to have known her and will miss her warm smile.

  • Flo was such a wonderful presence in our lives, my children and I were blessed to know her. Flo’s strong faith was an inspiration, and her love of family, gardening and animals, especially her cat waiting by the window, bring a smile. A life well lived, now resting with her heavenly Father.

  • As the woman that got me hooked on chocolate covered raisins when I was in kindergarten, I will be forever grateful. Through the years, in and out of my life always leaving me positively encouraged. Our loss here is definitely Heavens gain.

  • I worked with Flo for a number of years while she was with the Forest Service. She was a very cheerful, caring presence here and never forgot a birthday! I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her. I too will always remember her warm smile. May she rest in peace.
