In Loving Memory of

Florence Genova Urone

10/10/1918 - 08/11/2012

Florence Genova Urone, a long-time Gainesville resident, passed away on August 11 at age 93. The daughter of Sicilian immigrants, Florence was born in Pueblo, Colorado on October 8, 1918. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings and her beloved husband of 61 years, Paul Urone. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Peter Urone (Patty) and Mayri Caple (Dean), and her grandsons Christopher and Dustin Urone. Florence is also survived by wonderful friends, too numerous to mention individually but greatly loved and appreciated.

Florence was an avid dancer and she enjoyed watching sporting events and theater. She was blessed to be able to live independently and be active and alert until only weeks before her passing.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, August 17, 2012 at 2:00 PM at Forest Meadows Funeral Home Chapel, 725 NW 23rd Ave., Gainesville, FL 32609. A reception will follow the service at the funeral home.

    We met Paul and Florence Urone in 1978 at a small group of Round Dancers at
    the home of Tom and Sue McCrory in Gainesville , FL . We were in close association with them at dancing , and often eating out together . They were both active Line Dancers with the group at Trinity UM Church . After Paul’s passing Florence continued her love of daning until quite recently . We will miss her , GOD bless her.
