I met Florence when we both lived in Gaslight Village. I also worked down the hall in the Comptroller’s office when she worked in Research Accounting. We were friends for many years and had wondered what had happened to her after she rtired. My thoughts and prayers are to the family and a friend that will be missed.
I remember Florence from many years at First Baptist church, she was always so friendly and pleasant with a warm smile. A quiet and faithful servant. The picture is just how I think of her. A real lady.
