  1. I had the pleasure of getting to know Florence these last few months. She was a kind, caring, loving woman. It was an honor to care for her.

  2. On behalf of the pastors at Peace Lutheran Church, we pray that God’s comfort be with all of Florence’s family and friends. She was a sweet and gentle soul and will be greatly missed. I had the opportunity to visit her often and share Holy Communion with her. It was always a blessing to me spending time with Florence. Praise God for HIs saving grace and that Florence is now with her Lord.

  3. Florence was a loving, kind and very special aunt. Uncle Mike called her an angel and she truly was one of the most precious, caring people I knew. I feel very fortunate to have know her all of my life and to have so many wonderful memories. I know she’s in God’s hands and a better place. I pray for all the people who knew her and will miss her.
