Florence was born on September 27, 1932 in Eriksdale and raised in Camper, MB. She moved to Winnipeg where she met Gerry and they married in 1951. While raising their family she worked at Barber Ellis and later at Eatons. They raised four children in Weston where they lived for 40 years before retiring to Matlock. They attended St Thomas’s in Weston and All Saints Whytewold Anglican churches. They both loved old time fiddling music and dancing. Together they planned many family vacations, weekend camping trips and family gatherings, creating many special memories. She had many good friends and was a good friend to all. She enjoyed crafts, knitting, crotcheting, needlepoint and baking. She was happiest when she was with her family. She will be missed!
