Florence lived in Philadelphia, PA, Northfield, MN, Moorestown, NJ, and Medford, NJ. She had a quiet, cheerful personality, and loved her family! She enjoyed sewing, quilting, reading, doing crossword puzzles, playing Scrabble, watching Jeopardy, and socializing with family and friends. Her family loved to make her laugh! Over the years she volunteered in the Girl Scouts, the Cub Scouts, the American Red Cross, the Moorestown Friends Meeting, and at the Medford Leas Retirement Community. In addition to opening their home to many local college students, friends and family, she and her first husband, Bob, hosted a number of inner city youth needing an educational boost, through a program called A Better Chance. For many years she was the church secretary at the United Methodist Church in Northfield, MN. She never sought attention and was loved by everyone. She was known for her beautiful smile!

The family will have a memorial service at the Oaklawn Cemetery in Northfield in June. Arrangements by Bierman Funeral Home. biermanfuneralhome.com.
