Crocheting altar cloths was Florence's proudest accomplishment. Cooking fantastic meals was also something she was known for. Florence was a woman of great strength and independence. She was confident in herself and not afraid to write letters to the governor or state representatives to give her input and would clearly state her opinions.

Central to Florence's life were having family gatherings with card games, especially during the holidays which were her happiest times. This loving caregiver will be remembered and cherished.
