    Florence was a beloved member of the Fishermen Sunday School Class of Trinity UMC for many, many years with Carl. She loved our our class and we loved her also. During times their health did not permit attending, we kept in touch on a regular basis. We will also miss her but know that she is resting safely in the arms of Jesus. Our prayers are with Carl and their children as they share their grief with those who also love her. Sending love to you.

    Florence was a true friend and a beautiful person. Always there to help where needed. I met Florence when we worked at the Disney store. She started there about a month after me and we became good friends. After 6 years we moved to Texas, but our friendship continued. I will miss my friend very much.
    Our prayers and thoughts are with her beloved husband Carl, and her children, Carla and Mark, and her grandchildren, Erika and Alex.
